Prelude Music for the Church Pianist

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

How many of you church pianists besides myself grab the hymnal just before service to figure out a few prelude songs to play?

That works for me ONLY because I’ve been around awhile and and have memorized many hymns over time.  Seriously, it’s best to prepare in advance…at least before heading to church.

I try to play within a certain theme such as: comfort, peace, joy, thankfulness, salvation, etc.

One of my readers recently emailed me asking if I would provide a categorized list of songs for prelude possibilities.

I also got to thinking….how nice it would be to write/arrange these preludes.

For starters, I’ll share the suggested prelude lists by topic.  (Please note: Approx. 5 to 6 minute per prelude) if each song is played two times.

I actually wrote this intermediate version of “In the Bleak Midwinter” last year and had forgotten about it.

A year ago…one of my students had requested an intermediate version of my advanced version of “In the Bleak Midwinter”.

Here’s the result of that request….

Working on “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night” (early advanced piano solo).

The exciting part…I just came up with an intro and interlude that makes this arrangement long enough using only two verses!

I had almost forgotten about this early advanced piano solo of “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear”.

I actually offered it for “free” back in 2015. This particular Christmas piano arrangement is featured on my “Simply Christmas” CD.

I did this arrangement off the top of my head…so it’s more of a “free style” arrangement.

It’s a challenge for me to transcribe an audio arrangement to paper!

There are a few minor changes that I just HAD to make 😉

Vocal Special: “Nautical Medley” by My Dad

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

My dad was singing for a very special occasion here…50th year of SCACS (South Caroline Association of Christian Schools) teacher’s convention. He was the executive director of SCACS for at least 30 years.

I believe God gave Dad extraordinary strength to sing his heart out with this touching medley centered on the wonderful gift of salvation that only comes from the Lord. (He was 80 years old in this video)
