2-part chorus (flexible) with piano and violin duet
Philip Paul Bliss’s gorgeous hymn Brightly Beams our Father’s Mercy describes the Christian obligation to reflect the Savior’s light and help others find Him. This new arrangement is simple enough to be sung by youth choirs, but it is beautiful and interesting enough for experienced choirs to use in Sunday meetings or special conferences. This arrangement was written for an upcoming conference of the Greeley, Colorado Stake.
This hymn, loved for generations, was arranged for piano, flute, and women’s voices by Nathan Howe at the request of the gorgeous woman who would eventually become his wife. It was sung at a fireside in preparation for a pioneer trek activity at Martin’s Cove, Wyoming.
A good mother-in-law is hard to find. I got one. She’s a member of an elite squad of singing ladies called Come Saturday Morning (perhaps because they practice early on Saturday mornings). To honor them, I arranged this little ditty for four-part women’s voices. Click for more info and file downloads »
This hymn is a prayer for peace in the world and in our hearts. Nathan Howe’s arrangement from 2007 features natural voice leading and shimmering chords. It is a good medium-difficulty piece for a women’s choir or a trio. For an SATB version of this arrangement, click here.
