Hymn Fantasy No.1 - We Are Sowing
This dramatic piano solo is an homage to Schumann and Brahms, quoting Schumann’s Romance 28/2. The tune’s name is Westwood, composed by Henry Tucker. I find the text to this hymn especially profound: “Filled with fruit of life eternal, from the seed we sowed in tears.”
Hymn Fantasy No.2 - Thy Spirit, Lord, Has Stirred Our Souls
I wrote this piano solo as a gift for my daughter Jacqui. It is based on Alexander Schreiner’s great hymn tune Bavaria, an LDS hymn that I believe has few peers in technique or artistry.
Hymn Fantasy No.3 - Abide With Me, 'Tis Eventide
A worldwide Christian treasure, this hymn has been a favourite of mine since I was a child. Pianists will find echoes of Rachmaninoff in the style of this piece.
In The House of the Lord - Harp and Organ Duet
This is an adaptation of the 2nd movement of my Concerto for Celtic Harp and Strings, which has been very well received over the years.
I Know That My Redeemer Lives
These arrangements were adapted from the vocal ensembles and are suitable for early intermediate players. Contact me if you need an arrangement for other groupings.
The Lord Is My Shepherd - Piano and Organ Duet
This duet arrangement of this beloved hymn is of moderate difficulty. The second half recalls the gorgeous piano texture at the end of second movement of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G.
More Holiness Give Me - Violin/Cello/Piano
Adapted from my arrangement for choir, this arrangement would work for any soprano/baritone combination (oboe and bassoon, for example). Your purchase includes full score and separate instrumental parts. Let me know if there is a different key or transposition you would like.
Nearer, My God, To Thee - Violin Duet
This is a minor setting of Lowell Mason’s famous hymn, evocative, expressive and yet worshipful. The violins are treated as equals in this piece, appropriate for intermediate players.
