Added pennywhistle part to If You Could Hie To Kolob.
Recently I've created a few choral arrangements of songs familiar to
members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. (Not all
are uniquely LDS compositions.) I'm posting them here, in case anyone
finds them useful. If you end up performing one of these pieces,
please drop me a note!
For each song, the sheet music link loads the PDF file
containing the printable sheet music. The source code for sheet
music link lets you see how I used The ABC
Music Notation System and more recently Lilypond to typeset the music. If
available, a demo recording link lets you download a demo
recording. Also available for some songs are rehearsal
mixes, which have a specific vocal part boosted in the mix, to
make it easier to learn.
Let Thy Glory Round Us Shine (Moody/Prichard)
This is a medley of two LDS hymns, He Sent His Son and
In Humility, Our Savior, with just a little sprinkling of
Bach thrown in, arranged for SATB choir and piano. With lots of
different sections in different keys, the arrangement manages to be
both reverent and joyous, and all within four minutes!
The recordings featured here are of an especially nice performance by the
Albuquerque LDS Institute of Religion Choir on December 12, 2012.
Love At Home (John Hugh McNaughton)
This is LDS Hymn #294, He Is Risen, arranged for SATB
choir and piano. The music flows beautifully but choir and
accompanist alike must be adept at changing keys for this arrangement
to come off well.
He Is Risen (Cecil Frances Alexander, Joachim Neander)
This is a gentle and soothing arrangement of He Is Risen
for a flute and two violins.
My Redeemer Lives (Gordon B. Hinckley, G. Homer Durham)
This is not I Know That My Redeemer Lives but the less
familiar hymn #135, arranged for SATB choir and piano.
If You Could Hie To Kolob (William Wines Phelps, Traditional)
This is quite possibly the most uniquely LDS hymn, arranged for SATB
choir and piano. For those who
don't know, "hie" is old English for "hurry", and
Kolob is a place nearer to God than this earth. (This demo recording
came out very nice.)
The video featured here is of a performance by the
Albuquerque LDS Institute of Religion Choir on May 6, 2010.
Families Can Be Together Forever (Ruth Muir Gardner, Vanja Watkins)
This is a beautiful primary song, arranged for solo child voice, SATB
choir and optional piano (can be sung a cappella if preferred).
Sanctus (Gabriel Faure)
This is an enhanced choral arrangement to accompany the popular John
Rutter arrangement of Sanctus, from the Faure Requiem. Mainly it adds
some nice vocal harmonies to make up for the lack of instrumentation.
(This demo recording came out especially nice.)
Easter Hosanna (Vanja Watkins)
This is the wonderful primary song arranged for SATB choir and piano.
Prayer of the Children (Kurt Bestor)
Here are two a cappella arrangements of Kurt Bestor's breathtaking
composition, Prayer of the Children. One is for three
voices (SAB) and one is for four (SATB). I hope to upload a demo
recording of this someday.
I Believe In Christ (McConkie/Longhurst)
This is the LDS Hymn, arranged for a men-only a cappella group.
