Description Tune Index

This first volume of the two volume set is a practical collection of instrumental accompaniments for hymns that includes fifty-eight tunes found in Evangelical Lutheran Worship and many other hymnals. All instruments have the melody line as well as a harmony part so they can easily be integrated by a group of any size - even one player! Each instrumental part has been written to be very accessible so that even the middle school instrumentalist can successfully be integrated.

These accompaniments were designed to facilitate instrumentalists of all levels to participate in worship leadership in congregations both large and small allowing for the use of mixed band instrumentation. String parts are included, though keys have been selected to favor the young developing wind player.

This first volume covers a significant number of hymns related to the church year section. Includes the full printed score with keyboard and a CD-ROM with printable PDFs of all available instrumental parts for just-in-time usage.

Includes instrumental arrangements for each of the selected tunes for:

  • Flute/Oboe
  • Bb Clarinet/Tenor Saxophone
  • Eb Alto Saxophone
  • Bb Trumpet
  • C Trumpet
  • F Horn
  • Trombone/Tuba
