Brentwood-Benson Music Publications, and the Instrumental Worship Series, presents JOY TO THE WORLD! featuring 12 instrumental duets for piano and cello. These tasteful, worship-centric arrangements by Christopher Phillips, Music Director, Christ Church Nashville, are perfect for offertories, postludes, or as intimate, stand-alone performances. With a focus on flexibility, these inspiring arrangements also offer the solo instrumental part transposed to include the C instruments [Violin/Flute/etc.] and Bb instruments [Trumpet/Clarinet/etc.]
The printed folio comes with a bonus CD which can be used both as a reference recording or simply for your own listening pleasure and quiet times of reflection and worship. Further enhancing the value and usability of this featured publication is a CD Piano Accompaniment Track which enables the solo instrumentalist to perform these arrangements without the need of live piano accompaniment, and includes a detailed piano transcription and separately transposed parts for all C and Bb instruments.
