Choral Hymn Stanzas: Lent – Pentecost


SKU: SP-15-004 Category: Tags: , , , ,


Singing in alternation is a long-standing custom within the Church, even from the days of the Psalmists. This form of singing proves helpful by providing a ‘break’ for the congregation so that: 1) an interpretive musical setting can give more theological insight for a particular text, and 2) the congregation may be relieved from lengthy physical singing (though they still sing with the mind as they follow along with what the choir is singing). Some of these settings may also be used as varied organ accompaniment for congregational singing (see pages 6 and 10, for example) since they rhythmically match the hymn tune. For all these reasons Salpidzo Press presents these choral settings of hymn stanzas for use in alternation with the congregation. May all be blessed in the singing and hearing of these settings!


Cross of Jesus, Cross of Sorrow
Jesus, Grant that Balm and Healing
On My Heart Imprint Your Image
Savior, When in Dust to Thee
We Sing the Praise of Him Who Died

Awake, My Heart, with Gladness
Christ Jesus Lay in Death’s Strong Bands
Come, You Faithful, Raise the Strain
O Sons and Daughters of the King

See, the Lord Ascends in Triumph

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator Blest
Holy Spirit, Light Divine
