INSTRUMENTAL PRAISE - VOLUME 1 - CHRISTMAS HYMNS & SONGS

Many churches have a number of musicians within their congregations, but due to a lack of time and resources it is often difficult to provide opportunities for them to unite in utilising their musical skills to support their congregations in sung worship. Instrumental Praise is a new series of publications that provides flexible arrangements of well-known hymns and songs that will work with practically any group of instruments and can be used weekly or for special seasonal services.

The book contains scores of all the hymns and songs, whilst the accompanying CD-ROM provides an extensive range of instrumental parts to print out for the musicians.

This unique collection will provide churches with everything they need to develop instrumental ensembles for accompanying and supporting the congregation in their singing.

Volume one contains 20 favourite Christmas carols and songs, making it suitable for Carol Service, Crib Service and other seasonal services.

Paul wrote the flexible orchestrations and coordinated the project,
available now, published by RSCM Press.
