The works included in this volume represent practical compositions in various classical organ forms wed with the many emotions and thoughts expressed in the Book of Psalms. The first three volumes are collected here with an additional eight works, new to this product. These practical compositions, written with a well-defined, uncluttered style in mind, are filled with orchestral colors and intended to provide church organists with material to use as preludes and postludes, as well as selections for offertory or communion.
Built on the popular Natalie Sleeth title, and incorporating the tunes, EASTER HYMN, PASSION CHORALE and DIADEMATA, this festive Easter prelude is the latest addition to Joel Raney's exciting series of piano/organ worship openers with SATB choir entering at the conclusion for an optional choral introit. The optional part 3-5 octave handbells with optional 3-5 octave handchimes is a fully developed Level 2 setting that greatly enhances the overall presentation.
Both Keyboard Parts (Reproducible SATB Choral Introit Included)
In this contemporary bell setting Raney has captured the flowing, graceful style of Chris Rice's praise ballad for 3-5 octaves, with an optional Synth part. The theme of Jesus being ever present and offering comfort and hope in every circumstance is the inspirational message behind the song, making this useful in any worship setting.
