Just Published! Congregational Piano Hymn Arrangements…

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

Done! Finally!  I was extra picky with this collection and hope it’s useful to many church pianists.

I tried to create exciting accompaniments to enhance the congregational singing. Each arrangement contains an introduction as well as a couple verses/choruses worth of accompaniment.  Three of the arrangements even have key changes!

But relax 🙂  The arrangements are written in a lower key than the hymnal (at least two to three half steps lower). We have discovered that the congregation sings out even more when they can  sing in a reasonable key 😉

10 Late intermediate to early advanced piano congregational arrangements. (All Hail the Power, Are you Washed, Blessed Assurance, Does Jesus Care, Dwelling in Beulah Land, I Love to Tell the Story, Praise Him! Praise Him!, Rock of Ages, Sweet By and By, Sweet Hour of Prayer) 34 pages

The arrangements in this booklet are in lower keys; making it easier for the average congregation to sing. *Three of the arrangements have key changes!

Each arrangement contains an introduction and at least two verses & choruses…several of the hymns contain three verses worth of accompaniment.

*Special note: The arrangements in this booklet do not support the four-part singing found in most hymnals. *Other suggested uses: vocal solos, violin specials, unison choir specials. **Another special note: These arrangements can not stand alone as piano solos since some of the melody is absent during the piano accompaniment. *Complete audios not included with collections.

Piano-2-with-viginette

Just to let my readers know…

I just finished the first congregational pdf booklet this morning!  The collection contains ten piano congregational arrangements. Each arrangement has an introduction and at least two verses/choruses of accompaniment…some hymns contain three verses worth of accompaniment.

The arrangements do contain chord substitutions for extra zest so the piano accompaniment will not be suitable for four-part hymnal style singing.  (Just trying to target the small churches that generally sing unison).

Suggested uses of this collection other than congregational singing:  vocal solo specials, unison choir specials, violin solo specials. (lyrics in the score are included with each arrangement)

The playing level of the collection is late intermediate to early advanced. Can’t wait to get it online!
