    Arranger’s Description
    This is the one that started me down the path toward arranging sacred jazz. In 1998, burned out on corporate gigs, weddings and jazz clubs, I “quit” the music business. That’s when a visionary preacher asked me to arrange some hymns and spirituals in a jazz style. Many concerts and jazz worship services later, I recorded the results on a CD which remains a best-seller to this day. – Bradley Sowash

  • For the Beauty of the Earth - Downloadable PDF ()
    Downloadable PDF

    Exquisite solo piano hymns and spirituals arranged in jazz, classical, boogie, funk and quiet ballad styles.

    For this collection, I drew on many musical influences to create arrangements that sound like jazz, classical, boogie, funk and quiet ballads. It includes a variety of tunes from ecumenical hymnals that match the CD recording by the same title. Guitar chord symbols are included for a combo approach, if desired. Although one will need to do more than simply “sightread” these pieces, I think you’ll like the creative harmonic language as well as the chance to “shine” as a jazz pianist!

    Contents:
    1. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
    2. Doxology
    3. For the Beauty of the Earth
    4. Shall We Gather By The River
    5. Standin’ In The Need of Prayer
    6. Just As I Am/Sanctus
    7. By and By
    8. This Little Light of Mine
    9. Go Down Moses
    10. The Ash Grove

    Tune Index:
    Glory Hallelujah, Old Hundredth, Dix, Hanson Place, Standing in the Need, Sanctus/Woodworth, By and By, This Little Light, Tubman, The Ash Grove
