I just stumbled across this simple yet elegant; free piano arrangement when viewing my latest subscriptions of youtube videos.
Love to hear Suyun’s sacred piano videos on youtube 🙂 Thanks Suyun for making us aware of this free piano arrangement for Spirit of the Living God.
The free piano arrangement for Spirit of the Living God can be downloaded at Olive Huisman’s website. (you will find more free piano arrangements as well!)
A big thanks to Olive Huisman for sharing her piano arrangements for free!
Finished inputting “His Eye is on the Sparrow” (all 6 pages)
I would be to my parent’s house by now for Father’s Day weekend but truck in shop prevented the trip.
So…here I sit catching up on His Eye is on the Sparrow 🙂
This particular arrangement has a very full-sounding accompaniment style which means pretty advanced level.
Now for final editing stage. Here’s a sample from the piano/vocal arrangement for His Eye is on the Sparrow...(I used a flute for the vocal score in the recording)
Just to let my readers know I have entered a contest with my advanced piano arrangement of God Bless America.
The contest is hosted by Sheet Music Plus. The name of the contest is ArrangeMe which involves legally arranging copyrighted songs from a select list.
I normally don’t enter music writing competitions but I’ve always wanted to write a piano arrangement for God Bless America.
The contest rules are: Whoever brings in the most money in sales between June 8th through July 12th 2016….wins $300
No pressure! 🙂 Available for sale at Sheet Music Plus (Not for sale on our site due to copyright limitations).

Super excited to announce the publication of my advanced piano solo arrangement of God Bless America! I’ve always dreamed about being able to publish such an arrangement but copyright prevented that.
Thanks to SMP Press, aka Sheet Music Plus, ( a site I also publish sheet music through) … now offers a chance for its publishers to arrange 1000’s of copyrighted songs through ArrangeMe with SMP Press. I plan to use this platform of opportunity as time allows.
The advanced piano solo arrangement of God Bless America is only available through SMP Press at the following link:
Just sharing the Mother’s day song that my Dad, Reece Yandle, wrote many years ago.
The sheet music is available in our store at: http://thechurchpianist.com/music-store/vocal/unison/
My piano accompaniment isn’t an exact replica of the printed piano score but close enough.
You will enjoy this mission song…”Bring Their Faces into Focus” by James Cordell and arranged by Jenifer Cook.
The song begins with a Christian’s plea to God… seeking a vision for lost souls amongst the busyness of life and its distractions.
A reminder for Christians to focus on a world full of faces in need of the Saviour.
James shares the story behind this beautiful song…
“The last scene of Duey Whitfield’s missionary presentation showed an outline of the Unites States filled with faces of people. However, the faces were intentionally blurry.
Duey made the point that we so often pass people in our lives, but that they are a blur to us.
We do not take the time to focus on their faces and their need of Christ. Out of that thought, this song was born.”
James has dedicated this song to his friends, Duey and Melissa Whitfield, missionaries to the Spanish in the United States.
I’ve had many requests for this mission song after posting it on youtube a couple of years ago. We’re excited to be publishing James Cordell’s mission piece entitled “Bring Their Faces into Focus”. Look for this song to be published by noon (EST) tomorrow.
I thoroughly enjoyed writing the accompaniment for my dad’s song entitled “My Mother”.
A mixed adult and children’s ensemble at our church are singing this on Mother’s Day.
