Volume 4 of Worship in a New Key—Hymns of the Spirit: Pentecost and Beyond is now ready for download. Tim and I have been working hard behind the scenes to come up with 12 brand-new arrangements that you can use this Pentecost or for any “spirit-filled” worship service. As always, the hymns we choose are all public domain. You don’t have to worry about copyright issues and we encourage you to make copies of your Worship in a New Key arrangements for your band members. If you like what we’ve created, please spread the word and encourage your music ministry colleagues to download their own copies.
All 12 arrangements are transposed for C, Bb, Eb and Bass Clef instruments. The cost is just $20. Hymns include:
Aberystwyth: Wind that Makes All Winds that Blow
Balm in Gilead: There is a Balm in Gilead
Ebenezer: Come, O Spirit, Dwell Among Us
Every Time I Feel the Spirit: Every Time I Feel the Spirit
Jefferson: Wake, the Dawn is Now Full Rising
Mercy: Holy Spirit, Truth Divine
Morecambe: Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart
Munich: On Pentecost They Gathered
Open My Eyes: Open My Eyes That I May See
Pleading Savior: Spirit, Come, Dispel Our Sadness

You’ll notice that we identify each hymn by their traditional tune name as well as the first line hymn names. In the download information we also list many commonly associated hymns using the same hymn tune. The hymns feature a variety of styles—straight ahead, Latin, Dixieland, funk, jazz waltz, etc. We hope you’ll fine these arrangements a great addition to your jazz ministry and make it an important part of your repertoire.
