New Anthems and Solos for Spring, 2014

At Worship Sounds Music, we are constantly working to add new music to our Worship Sounds Music Website.  Our two newest songs are “I Can’t Explain” and “Into His Hands”.

“I Can’t Explain”

“I Can’t Explain” is a worship ballad with a reflective message about the wonder of God’s great love, demonstrated in the life, death, and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Written by Worship Pastor and composer Travis L. Boyd, this song is available as an SATB Choral Anthem, as heard in this demo, and as a Vocal Solo, in 3 keys for Low, Medium, and High Voice.

The SATB Choral Anthem can be performed with live instruments or with the Anthem Trax heard here (purchased separately, as an Mp3 download).  The Anthem is found on the General Use Anthems page of our Worship Sounds Music website.  It could also be sung on Palm Sunday or one of the other Sundays leading up to Easter.

The Vocal Solo versions of “I Can’t Explain” (Low, Medium, and High Voice) each have an Accompaniment Track, which comes as an Mp3 download, with a PDF lead sheet.  In addition Solo Sheet Music is available in each of the 3 keys.  Solo Music can be found on the “Solos / Worship Songs” page of our Worship Sounds Music Website.

 

“Into Your Hands”

Into Your Hands is a moving power ballad with choral accompaniment.  This song is a musical prayer of total surrender to the Lordship of Christ.

This SATB anthem with Solo throughout can be found on the “General Use Anthems” page of our Worship Sounds Music website @ http://www.worshipsounds.com
