Travis has added a new orchestration to the WorshipSounds Music website! The Director of a large choral group which is singing Travis’ modern hymn and choral arrangement of “A Prayer for the Saints” in TTBB voicing requested a full orchestration for his group. The new orchestration for “A Prayer for the Saints” was added to our website this morning. Like all of Travis’ orchestrations, it is written to be practical for church orchestras as far as difficulty level and to work well with Church Orchestras with varying instrumentation. Travis is always very careful to make sure that the instrumental parts complement the choral arrangement well without covering up the choir. He has had more than one Director remark about the fact that his Orchestrations are very well written in that they enhance the choral parts without overwhelming them.
“A Prayer for the Saints” is a through composed modern hymn that voices a prayer of longing to draw near to the Lord. It essentially puts into words the desires of the heart for every Christian who wants to walk more closely with the Lord and live in a way that glorifies Him. The TTBB anthem arrangement was selected by Sons of Jubal Director, Dr. Jon Duncan, as the theme song for this year’s annual Sons of Jubal retreat in January, 2012. “A Prayer for the Saints” is also in the current repertoire of The Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma, directed by Dr. Randy Lind. On our website, we currently have available the anthem arrangment of this hymn in SATB and TTBB Voicings, the full Orchestration, and a Worship Pak, which includes hymnal or bulletin size reproducible hymn sheets, a Vocal Solo/congregational arrangment with piano accompaniment, and lead sheets for rhythm section.
