Get Kids Singing Favorite Hymns - Volume One

From Plank Road Publishing

Musical Arrangements by Karl Hitzemann, Paul Jennings, and Mike Wilson

A Collection For Young Voices

We've asked three of our most creative arrangers to pick favorite hymns and set them in contemporary settings that maintain the essentials of the hymn while adding new musical excitement to the arrangement and orchestration. This valuable resource includes:

  • All Hail The Power Of Jesus' Name - When you first hear this striking new setting, your first thought might be "Riverdance." It is an energetic 4/4 with an infectious 12/8 underpinning for orchestra.
  • Amazing Grace - We think that this fine old hymn deserves the powerful setting you will find here. Opening with beautiful, entwining string counterpoint, it leads to rich chords under the choir.
  • Be Thou My Vision - Rooted in a strong pianistic adaptation, this favorite hymn swells into a strong, rhythmic arrangement that will stay with you for a long time.
  • Fairest Lord Jesus - We have heard many settings of this old hymn, but this setting is unique, with a simple Appalachian accompaniment, spiced with just the right instruments including a hammered dulcimer, and a chorus of guitars. It's just right.
  • Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing - Enjoy this plaintive arrangement that states the song simply, over an elegant tapestry of piano, strings, and guitar. It is topped off with a lovely violin solo over the final verse.
  • The Solid Rock - This striking setting of the great old hymn is sort of "rock in 3." It builds from an expectant intro, full of tight harmonies in the accompaniment of rhythm section and strings. By the chorus, it is a joyous forte with rock guitar and moving strings. Coming out of the second verse there is a big ending with an optional second part, and a big "Amen" to close it.
