Holy Week Hits (New and Old) – from St. James Music Press

The latest e-news from St. James Music Press:

We’re well into Lent, and so far, we’ve kept up with our Lenten disciplines of prayer, fasting, and complete abstinence from exercise!

With all of that going on, you may still be planning (or need to make changes) for Holy Week so we want to be sure you saw some of our new releases as well as remind you about a few of our favorite gems from the back catalog.

These are appropriate anytime in Lent as well as for Holy Week. “When Jesus Wept” is also particularly suited for the Fifth Sunday in Lent.

If you haven’t been on the site for a while, there’s a lot of new music and we’ll also be updating our suggestions on the catalog page as we move closer to Easter.

Jump on and have a look!

Featured Scores

Drop, Drop Slow Tears

For 2 part mixed choir and keyboard (organ or piano) - Sarah MacDonald brings you an immediately useful setting of Gibbon's tune Psalm 46 with the text by Phineas Fletcher. The accompaniment provides interest and the vocal parts are easily managed - this can even be sung by two singers. - View sheet music • Sarah's arrangement at YouTube: https://youtu.be/qurGiRUDAj0

When Jesus Wept
For two-part (equal voices) choir and organ. An arrangement of the classic canon by William Billings, with additional text from a hymn by Charles William Everest. - View sheet music

Ave Verum Corpus
Also by Sarah MacDonald, this score, or any combination of 3 voices is a nifty canon using the well-known latin text. Appropriate for Lent, Holy Week, or communion anytime! - View sheet music

My Song is Love Unknown
An arrangement of the beautiful hymn tune by John Ireland. James Kirkby arranges a beautiful two-part (mixed) choir IN CANON and organ with an optional descant. It's all of the "wow" with half of the work. - View sheet music
