We Have a Saviour Who Cares by Mina Oglesby

November 7th, 2015

VERY excited about this beautiful song, “We Have a Saviour Who Cares” by Mina Oglesby!

You and your congregation will be blessed by this heart-warming song which reminds believers of God’s constant presence in their  lives.

A very appropriate song for those going through a difficult time…who need that extra encouragement….to know that God cares!

The following video was recorded before the written arrangement took place so I will try to provide a more accurate recording asap but this will give you a general idea of the song.

We Have a Saviour Who Cares (NEW)
Vocal solo or duet (medium range) 8 pgs. *Price covers two copies * No audio included. Video below. Heart-touching melody and words by Mina Ogelsby. You and your congregation will be encouraged by this uplifting song about God's abundant love. *See youtube video link below to hear this song. This recording took place before my written version on sale above..so it's not an exact note replication but close enough. I will try to provide a more true recording to the written arrangement asap.

So glad to have finally finished this collection of Congregational Piano Hymn Arrangements! I always enjoy writing in an accompaniment fashion…much more can be played than the melody :)

I may have strayed more from melody in this second collection but not enough to lose your congregation ;)

Hope you enjoy this collection!  A special thanks to the John W. Peterson company for working with me to include “Heaven Came Down” which I REALLY had fun writing!

Free Piano/Vocal Solo Arrangement: I Shall Know Him

October 12th, 2015

music manuscript icon

Just started revival meetings with Alton Beal this week to last through Wednesday.

My daughter-in-law will be helping me with accompanying this week so I wrote this arrangement (I Shall Know Him)… for her to accompany the vocal solo for tonight.

The vocal soloist happens to take a lot of freedom with the text …lots of ebb and flow. So I freed the pianist from the melody to allow more freedom for the pianist and soloist.

Wanted to share this free piano/vocal solo arrangement  for “I Shall Know Him” before running errands!

Greg Howlett: FREE Arrangement

October 7th, 2015

I’m on Greg Howlett’s email list and just received an email from him offering his piano arrangement of “O Sacred Head Now Wounded” for FREE!

As stated by Greg: “You might recognize this arrangement because it is an adaption of a longer version I recorded of this song on Quiet Place. I hear from people often who want arrangements from that album and this is the most requested song.”

Here is Greg playing it on youtube:

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

September 28th, 2015

I published a late intermediate arrangement of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen a couple  years ago.  I was needing an early intermediate arrangement of this Christmas song for one of my piano students to play for recital this year…so…got up around 5 am last week and this one just flowed.

It’s not very long because we like short and sweet recitals ;)  The shorter solo also allows time for the student to learn a piano duet with me for the recital.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen (NEW)
Early intermediate Christmas piano solo, 2 pgs. Approx. 1:00 Great recital piece or short offertory! This uniquely crafted arrangement begins and ends with a flair!

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Accompanying Made Simple by Shelly Hamilton

August 31st, 2015

I recently attended a couple piano workshops by Shelly Hamilton.

“Accompanying Made Simple” was a very practical workshop providing the church pianists with simple yet practical ideas for accompanying special music.

Shelly brought her accompaniment suggestions to life by offering a free arrangement of Day by Day which includes three different accompaniment styles.  Thanks Shelly!

I attended Shelly’s workshops so that I could share accompaniment ideas with my church pianist readers.  Click on the following links to download the handouts for this workshop.
