Just re-published “Then Sings My Soul” formerly known as “How Great Thou Art”.
I was asked by the music company that owns the lyrics to the words of “How Great Thou Art” to rename this arrangement or otherwise pay royalties for the use of the phrase “How Great Thou Art”.
I personally don’t feel they can universally own the phrase “How Great Thou Art” but sincerely want to stay above board on this issue. (It’s been and is still a very controversial issue with others besides myself).
The reason for my delay was trying to locate the original file to rename the arrangement. I just found the file this morning while rummaging through old files that I had searched before numerous times. (I was thinking the file had been lost a couple years ago when I accidentally deleted alot of my music files)
I’ve had MANY requests for this arrangement since taking it offline for awhile during the re-naming process.
Thanks for your interest! I truly enjoy writing for you all!
I just published an early advanced piano arrangement of “O Come All Ye Faithful” and a beautiful rendition of “What Child is This” for violin solo w/ piano accompaniment.
“O Come All Ye Faithful” is written in more of a prelude style but can suffice as a Christmas offertory. This particular arrangement was also one of my homespun pieces…featured on the Christmas CD entitled “Simply Christmas”. I did make harmonic corrections here and there in the written version because I couldn’t help myself! 😉
We hope to create youtube videos for both of these arrangements by the weekend.
Moderately advanced Christmas piano solo, 3&1/2 pgs. Approx. 2:22 length
Nice arrangement for offertory or other special event.
The key change in the middle of the second verse soars into a joyful ending!
I just published an early intermediate sacred piano solo of “Am I a Soldier of the Cross”. One of my male students specifically requested this song for an offertory arrangement. Knowing this hymn was rather short…I asked him if he would like a medley with this song in it but he didn’t seem interested in my suggestion….so…I had to add an interesting intro, interlude and ending just to make this arrangement last long enough 😉
You’ll notice more structure in this piece since it was written for the student in mind.
Early intermediate sacred piano solo, arranged by Jenifer Cook, 3 & 1/2 pgs.
Written for the student in mind with ample fingering suggestions. Well-structured for easy learning. This piece does have a slight celtic flair.
I wrote this for one of my former male piano students who LOVED hymns in minor keys. He's in college now but still considers this his all-time favorite.
