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.

Song Story: “For the Glory of God”

“For the Glory of God”  is a choral anthem written by Travis L. Boyd, which can currently be found on our website’s Adult Choir music page in SATB, SSAA, and TTBB voicings.  There is also a full orchestration available for this anthem.   “For the Glory of God”  features gently syncopated verses which lyrically extol the character and person of our great God, along with a strong chorus that begins with a statement of who God is in our lives, leading into an “Alleluia”  section that ends with a description of our praise for Him and a re-statement of the reason for our praise.  This anthem is in the current repertoire of the Georgia Baptist Convention’s Jubalheirs, under the direction of Dr. Jon Duncan

First Baptist Church of Dublin, Georgia

A SONG STORY
“For the Glory of God” has been a demonstration of love that began as a desire to glorify God while also encouraging the heart of a Georgia Minister of Worship.  Travis was contacted by some people who were active members of the Chancel Choir at First Baptist Church of Dublin, Georgia.  They wanted to commission an anthem in honor of the 25th Anniversary of service to the Lord and to their congregation by their Minister of Worship and Music, Dick Burrell.  It was the desire of these good people to encourage the heart of this dear servant of God through a worship song that could be sung by the choir on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary and would also then be sung by countless churches all around the world for the glory of God.  Travis normally takes as inspiration for any commission work the favorite scripture and favorite hymn title of the person or group the song is being written for.   In this case, there were no specifics given along these lines.   Travis was told that Dick likes rhythmic choral anthems.   Of course, the ultimate purpose of the piece would be to bring glory to God while also being a personal expression of love and encouragement from the choir members to their Director and Minister of Worship, who had served faithfully for many years and had recently lost his dear wife, Vicki.

The First Baptist, Dublin, ministry team did a great job pulling off the surprise for our brother Dick Burrell.  What a great testimony of love from these people, who began working on this surprise months in advance.  I know that brother Dick and all of their church would join with Travis and myself in praying that this song will go on to touch and reach hearts that we will not know on this side of Heaven.  Here is the thank you
e-mail that brother Dick sent to Travis on Monday, Jan. 9th, 2012, after he been surprised with the anthem the day before:

Dick Burrell leading in worship, with the FBC Dublin Chancel Choir

“Dear Travis,

Thank you so much for the anthem, For the Glory of God.  The Chancel Choir (over 40 voices yesterday) sang it in our morning worship.  They had rehearsed whenever I was out of town at our church and other times when I was in town at either Pine Forest Methodist or FUMC.  They did a wonderful job.  Our pianist was a piano performance major at Shorter in the early 70’s and did post grad work at the Mozarteum in Austria.  They all got such a kick out of keeping this from me—-I had no clue.  I look forward to a bit later working on it with them and doing the anthem again.  You may not know that the Jubals sang God Is Faithful at my sweet Vicki’s memorial service last March, so, it was most appropriate that they commissioned you to compose the anthem for my 25th anniversary.

Dick Burrell

Thank you, again.

Dick Burrell”

“For the Glory of God,”  like all of Travis’ anthems, is written to be performed with or without the full orchestration.  The piano part is supportive, and chord symbols are included on the music for a rhythm section.   The orchestration is written to be practical for church orchestra and will work with a wide variety of instrumentation, though all of the parts are available for full instrumentation.  Travis is always careful in the writing of an orchestration to allow the orchestra to meaningfully enhance the performance of the anthem but also to make sure that the choir is not “covered up” when the orchestra plays.  You will be more than happy with the results of this attention to detail and to the communication of the message.

“For the Glory of God” is available on our website’s adult choir page @ http://www.worshipsounds.com   You purchase the PDF master copy in your choice of full page or octavo format for $15.00, and then you are allowed to make an unlimited number of copies (for your own choir and rhythm section only).  The orchestration, which includes parts for all instruments, a full score, and a string reduction for keyboard, is $30.00.

“For the Glory of God” can be found on our Worship Sounds Music website, on the Adult Choir music page.  http://www.worshipsounds.com

Introducing the choral anthem, “For the Sins of All”

“For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17

There’s a new addition to the WorshipSounds Music Website!

The powerful message of the anthem “For the Sins of All” is now available for SATB Choir.  There is also a beautiful, full orchestration available.  The lyrics of this anthem tell the story of the amazing, sacrificial love of God and the incredible demonstration of grace in action as Jesus laid down His life in order to provide salvation for us…for the sins of all.

This anthem also has a Full Orchestration available.   In addition, there is a Vocal Solo in of this song on our website’s Home Page in the left sidebar.  The Vocal Solo is available in 3 keys.  Both the Orchestration and our brand new Accompaniment Track (which features the Orchestration) work with both our SATB Choral Anthem and the Medium Voice Vocal Solo.  We do not yet have Accompaniment tracks for the other 2 Solo keys.  You can hear the Accompaniment Track with a Vocal Solo demo at the end of this post.  Scroll down to our Sound Cloud recordings of “For the Sins of All”.

Here are the lyrics to “For the Sins of All”

(Verse 1)
“The tiny cries of a baby in a manger,
A rugged cross on a hill called Calvary,
The perfect plan of a holy, loving Father
Who gave His son to rescue you and me.

(Chorus)
For the sins of all
He walked the road to Calvary.
For the sins of all
He suffered on that tree.
With a final shout of victory,
He changed the course of history.
For only He could answer Heaven’s call
And die upon a rugged cross
For the sins of all.

(Verse 2)
Before the world was ever set in motion,
Before the dawn of mankind had begun,
Before the name of Jesus had been spoken,
The Father chose to sacrifice His Son.

(Repeat chorus)

(Bridge)
Through the life He led and the blood He shed
And the sacrifice He made,
He was reaching out with eternal love
To the ones He came to save.

(Repeat chorus, with tag ending)

Song Story: “Amazing Grace! Eternal Life!”

“Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!”   Music and lyrics by Travis L. Boyd

“Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!”  is a choral anthem and modern hymn, published by the Lorenz Corporation, that shares the full message of the gospel.  The publishers’ description of the anthem states, “This memorable theme steadily builds throughout, forming a powerful statement of praise.”

(NOTE:  Scroll down just below the John 3:16 needlework picture to the “Publisher’s Information Page” heading for a link to the anthem, orchestration, & accomp. trax on the Lorenz website.)

The anthem was inspired by the most beloved scripture verse and the favorite hymn for so many Christians.   Travis wrote this song using as his inspiration John 3:16 and the message of the hymn, “Amazing Grace.”   This is the story of how “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!”  came to be written.

In 2002, Travis stated that he wanted to write an anthem in honor of and dedicated to my Dad, who was valiantly fighting cancer (first diagnosed in December of 1999).   Travis asked my Mom to find out what Dad’s favorite scripture verse and favorite hymn were, and to try to do so without arousing any suspicion.  When Mom asked at first, Dad wanted to claim the entire book of John as his favorite scripture passage; but Mom was able to get him to name his favorite verse from the book, John 3:16.  Mom called back to let us know his favorite scripture and also that his favorite hymn was “Amazing Grace.”  Travis began the writing process, and he was blessed with a beautiful melody and a text that powerfully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.  As soon as the song was complete, Travis immediately began arranging the song for SATB Choir.

When “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!” was finished, my family began making plans to surprise Dad with the song.  The son of some long time family friends was being married in Tulsa in early 2003.  Since that was near our home, Travis and I invited everyone in our family who could come for the wedding to stay with us while in the area.  While all were at our house, we would make the surprise happen.  My sister, Linda, and brother, Rich, were both able to come, flying in from Washington State.  Though Dad had endured two cancer-related surgeries by this point in his treatment and was still dealing with ongoing chemo and radiation, he was able to do some light travel.  He and Mom drove the 3 and a half hours to our home.  While we were together, we celebrated Dad’s birthday, which was very close to the date of the wedding.  After the festivities, we surprised Dad with “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!”   Travis and Mom shared the story of the way they’d been able to learn Dad’s favorites and use them as inspiration.  Then, all of us who were there helped to share the song with Dad for the first time.   Our daughter, Meredith, sang Soprano with me.   Mom and Linda sang alto.  Rich and Travis handled the men’s parts while Travis accompanied on piano.   It was an all-family production, and Dad seemed to be blown away.   Travis told him that he would contact the Choir Director at Mom and Dad’s church to see if the premiere of the anthem could take place at their home church with their own church choir.

The date of the anthem premiere at Mom and Dad’s church (pictured here) was in November of 2003.  Dad had a few months of feeling really good over the Spring and Summer of 2003, and on into the early Fall.  He even felt well enough to drive all the way to South Carolina to visit relatives for almost a month, play a lot of golf, and drive back to Oklahoma.  However, by October, the chemo that had been well tolerated had stopped working.  The next regimen he was placed on seemed to immediately sap his strength, and it later became apparent that his heart had been damaged.  By the time Travis and I and our two boys drove down for the premiere week-end, Dad had already lost both his hair (which had grown back w/ the former chemo med) and his strength.  He was pale and not feeling very well, but he did make it to church that Sunday morning.  The church had chosen to use the occasion of the anthem premiere to say ‘thank you’ to my Dad for his years of faithful service as a Sunday School teacher and in many other capacities.  Dad was rather embarrassed about this.  He felt that there were many others in the church who had served just as faithfully.  My Mom and Travis and I sang in the choir.  My sister, Linda, was able to come, and she sat with Dad, as did our son, Jared, age 10, who had just lost his other Grandpa in May of that same year.  Dozens of Dad’s friends and colleagues were there, as well as his church family.  Everyone present that morning heard the gospel message clearly presented as “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!” was sung by a choir for the first time.   The song is much more than a tribute to one man.  It is a testimony of God’s saving grace demonstrated in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Travis had submitted “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!” to one of his publishers, and he got word that it had been accepted for publication by the Lorenz Corporation in the Spring of 2004.  My dad was very pleased to know that.  The anthem went to press bearing a first page inscription in honor of my Dad.  Travis had also been asked by Lorenz to write a full orchestration for the anthem, as he had done for  “God is Faithful”  previously.   So, when “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life” was published as an SATB anthem, Travis’ full orchestration for it was published as well.  Both are still available from Lorenz Music.  (See info below)

Dad passed away in the Fall of 2004, less than a year after the anthem premiere at his church.  The lyrics to “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!”  were read by Dad and Mom’s Pastor at his memorial service.  Singing was never Dad’s thing (though he could whistle beautifully).  He left the singing to other members of the family, though he did his best in the congregation at his church.  He always had an appreciation for music and for the power of words.   We hope that his heart was touched by this gift of his favorite expressions of spiritual truth, combined with new words and music.   Our hearts were touched and challenged by his life and by his brave battle with cancer.   And, far beyond anything that we could ask or think, we pray that the message of “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!” will continue to touch the hearts of people around the world.

NOTE:  “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life” was on the Lorenz best-sellers list after it was released, and it continues to be a well-loved anthem for choirs all over the world (translated into 3 languages that we know of).  There are Youtube and Vimeo videos that we have discovered of choirs singing the anthem in English, Mandarin, Korean, and Italian.  See additional information below.

Here is the audio from my Sound Cloud set of Pulisher’s Demo Recordings of the Lorenz Studio Demo of “Amazing Grace! Eternal Life!”   See the publisher’s info page link below for ordereing the music.

LYRICS  FOR  “Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!”

There is a love sent down to man,
A rugged cross, a spotless lamb,
A life laid down, a sacrifice.
Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!

Here's the first page of "Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!", published by the Monarch division of the Lorenz Corporation.

Here’s the first page of “Amazing Grace! Eternal Life!”, published by the Lorenz Corporation (Monarch Division).  The inscription at the top reads, “Dedicated to Dr. Harold McCoy White, in celebration of 38 years of faithful service as a layman of The First United Methodist Church, Weatherford, Oklahoma.

There is a hope beyond the grave,
With love so deep and pow’r to save.
Rising above all earthly strife,
Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!

There is a peace that all can know.
It calms the heart and heals the soul.
“Come unto Me!,” the Savior cries!
Amazing Grace!  Eternal Life!

(bridge – a paraphrase of John 3:16 – 17)
God so loved the world that He gave His Son,
For us to believe in Him.
For the Son was not sent to condemn the world,
But to save us from our sin.

There is a home prepared for all
Who on the name of Jesus call.
A place of rest, a throne on high!
Amazing grace!  Eternal life!

(repeat last 2 phrases)
Amazing Grace!

EPILOGUE

My mother and several of her friends were able to attend the “Foundations” concert and hear the song that was first inspired by my Dad’s favorites as it was being sung and played by over 700 musicians.  The ladies loved the entire worship concert, and especially “Amazing Grace! Eternal Life!”   My Dad would have enjoyed that evening as well, but he probably would still have cherished the initial family performance of the anthem and the premiere at the church where he and Mom had attended and served for decades even more.

Happy 80th Birthday, Dad!

I wrote this to honor the Lord and in your memory.

Love, Cindy

Boyd is a Minister of Music and Worship, who has served churches in Oklahoma, Texas, and Georgia.  He is also a composer, with Choral Anthems, Songs, and Orchestrations published by Shawnee Press (now under Hal Leonard), Lorenz, Choristers Guild, Broadman, and Lifeway.  (Our website and this blog both have a full listing of our published music as well as a discography on our ‘Published Music’ pages.)  Travis’ music has been sung and recorded by The Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma, The Singing Churchwomen of Oklahoma, The Sons of Jubal, The Jubalheirs, The Pasadena Tabernacle Songsters, The Atlanta Choral Guild, InOvation, The Farrells, and serveral individuals who completed custom recording projects.  Travis’ goal with Worship Sounds Music is to provide music for the purpose of bringing glory to God and encouraging the body of Christ.  His music has been priced very affordably to make it available for churches with a limited budget.  He basically charges just enough to keep the website going and pay for the shopping cart and Pay Pal services.  Although Travis has been writing music for many years, our website is relatively new.  His music was formerly available only through his Publishers and through inquiries from individuals who had heard his music sung by the groups previously mentioned.  The website provides availability for the as yet unpublished music that God has given through Travis.
