What the Lord Has Done in Me

“Let the weak say “I am strong,” let the poor say, “I am rich”, let the blind say “I can see, It’s what the Lord has done in me.”

This great song by Hillsong’s Reuben Morgan speaks of the amazing upside-down world that Christ provides. 

This is an arrangement for Choir with Piano accompaniment, and optional violin. The opening solo can be sung by a Tenor or Alto, depending on your choir’s strengths.

Rattlin’ Bog

I saw this song being sung by an Irish lass at the end of a wedding, and I thought to myself “I have to learn that song.” Watch to the end for some extra cuteness.

I have also arranged it for SATB. This is a fun little piece with a humorous twist at the end – feel free to play this up as you perform it. Everyone gets a chance to shine in this arrangement for Acapella SATB group – suitable for performance as a quartet or in a larger ensemble.

Choir – Guy Sebastian

Choir” is a song made by Australian recording artist called Guy Sebastian. The song was released on 31 May 2019 as the second single from Sebastian’s forthcoming ninth studio album. The song is dedicated to his great friend and musical collaborator Luke Liang, who died following a battle with mental health. Sebastian said “[His death] was very unexpected. In fact, I’d actually done a gig with Luke, who passed away, just before I left for LA. And I could sense that something wasn’t quite right… It was very hard to process and it still is.” The song was originally a ballad but Sebastian changed it into “an upbeat, poignant song about the choir of voices Liang has joined in death, and the choir of voices “keeping his light alive” on earth.”

This is an arrangement for SATB Choir with piano accompaniment. All parts have opportunity to shine with the melody, while use of harmonies accentuate the performance. There are about 3 bars of A capella singing, which can be accented with hand claps, and the piece finishes with some off-beat accentuations from the Soprano, Alto and Bass parts. All the semiquavers are swung to give the piece a jazzy, RnB feel.
Ranges: Soprano (F4-A5), Alto (C4-D5), Tenor (C3-C5), Bass (F2-D4).

The Power of Jesus Christ will Reign

A fun, boppy, composition suitable for performance in church. The lyrics of the Chorus read:
And we thank you Lord Jesus for the things you’ve done,
We’ve got a new heart from you and a new spirit too,
and we will shout all your praises from the highest of heights
For we are cleansed of our sins by the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is an original composition by Ben Clapton. It was written with a Salvation Army Songsters group in mind, but is suitable for all choral groups.

Wonder-working Power

A driving arrangement of this wonderful hymn. The inspiration for this version came from playing this hymn at a young men’s spiritual retreat, where they would shout out an echo of the word “Power” in the chorus. This arrangement is an attempt to capture that passion and energy.

The choral parts include some syncopation, but the higher difficulty is due in the most part to the piano accompaniment.
