How to Use the Parts

These four-part arrangements have been transcribed so that they can be performed by virtually any combination of voices and instruments. You can use them with choir alone, or with choir and supporting instruments. So, if you want to use them with voices and just a few instruments, this is for you! The arrangements be played by strings, but because most of the hymns are written in "flat" keys, they're more suited to wind instruments and more experienced string players. I'll be adding some string-friendly versions later. The list below shows the instrumental options for each part. Just pick and mix as you want from the selection.

For information on using the parts with specific ensembles, for example, clarinet choir, symphonic band and so on, please click here. You can download the SATB score by clicking on the yellow button below.


IMPORTANT! Most of the hymn parts are printed on two A4 pages, with the "C" part at the top of the page. You'll need to scroll down the page to see the other parts. Shorter hymns are printed on one page.

SOPRANO PART

This includes (a) Soprano in C

For flute, piccolo, oboe, descant recorder, or glockenspiel. The part is written in octaves to extend the possible uses. If you are using strings, you can decide yourself which octave to use. If you have enough strings, you could have them play in octaves.

(b) Soprano in B flat

For clarinet, trumpet, cornet, or flugelhorn.

(c) Soprano in E flat

This part is written in octaves to bring it within the range of the E flat cornet. For E flat alto saxophone, E flat clarinet, or E flat cornet.

(d) Soprano in F

For French horn. This part works best when the melodic range is suitably low and is intended purely for French horn solo use.

ALTO PART

This includes (a) Alto in C

For flute, piccolo, oboe, descant recorder, or glockenspiel. If you are using strings, you can decide yourself which octave to use. The part is written in octaves to extend the possible uses. If you have enough strings, you could have them play in octaves.

STRING PARTS

String parts normally appear on two A4 pages, except for short hymns which appear on one. The first and second violin parts are written in octaves. If you have enough strings, you can divide both first and second violins so that both sections are playing in octaves. On the other hand, if your string players are reasonably advanced, you may prefer to have all of them reading the upper octave.
