Nice Patriotic Piano Offertory

Friday, June 26th, 2015

May-Jesus-Christ-be-Praised-Book-Marilynn-Ham

Just came across this piano book, “May Jesus Christ be Praised” with a nice patriotic medley by Marilynn Ham and thought I’d share it.  You can only view the first two pages but it’s a nice looking piece for offertory! I also like the looks of “When Morning Gilds the Skies”.  These are arrangements are for the advanced pianist.

Sheet Music Plus has it on sale right now for $13.59 plus shipping. I’m buying my copy right now 🙂

Not sure how new this book is but I haven’t seen it before.

The Church Pianist: Piano Offertory Resource

Friday, January 21st, 2011

This is the time of year that I research piano offertories for church  and recital pieces for my students to play at the upcoming spring recital.

 The following book “In the Light of His Glory” by Martha Mier, contains twelve late intermediate to early advanced piano arrangements.  The book was produced by Alfred Publishing Company.  I like Alfred’s website because they show sample pages from the different sacred piano books or any other music for that matter. The sample pages from this book sound beautiful! 

 The three samples available at the time of my search were: “Near to the Heart of God” , His Eye is on the Sparrow” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”.

The Church Pianist: Free Piano Offertory (Part Two)

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Finally! Here is part two of the free piano offertory
for this week.

This piano offertory is an old hymn reminding us of what
a special place heaven must be. 

The text depicts a happy mood. I tried to make it simple
but peppy.

Notice the bouncy rhythm in the left hand on page one
used to convey a cheerful message.
