Thisis an essential collection of twenty-two favorite Easter hymns arranged forstring quartet, string quintet or string orchestra. Designed for school, college or church this useful collection should be in your library! The double bass is optional, because itdoubles the cello part throughout. There’s a piano part too, so you can also use thearrangements as string solos, duets or trios. They are intended either as stand-alonepieces that could be used as interludes in an Easter service, or they could beused to accompany solo, choral or congregational singing. The music has beenset in string-friendly keys and leans towards G major, D major and C major. Thepiano part has been written for with the early intermediate pianist in mind,though some hymns are actually quite easy. In a string orchestra, you canbrighten the sound by instructing a few of the more advanced violin players to playan octave higher in both 1st and 2nd violin parts. Youcan also use the arrangements as flute or oboe solo pieces, the wind instrumentplaying the 1st violin part.

(Würtemburg); Crown Him with ManyCrowns (Diademata); Jesus Christ is Risen Today (Easter Hymn); Jesus Lives!(St. Albinus); Love’s Redeeming Work is Done (Savannah); Low in the Grave HeLay (Lowry); There is a Green Hill Far Away (Horsley); Near the Cross (Doane); OSacred Head Now Wounded (Passion Chorale); The Day of Resurrection (Ellacombe);The Strife is O'er, the Battle Won (Victory); Rock of Ages (Toplady); Thine bethe Glory (Maccabæus); This Joyful Eastertide (Easter-tide); To God be theGlory!
