Latvian Dziesmu Grmata (1992)music For Your Church Services

These settings, freely available, are intended for congregational use (subject to liturgical context) and to be accessible to the 'small church'.

Most are written to Church of England (Anglican) Common Worship texts but will also suit many other churches and denominations. You are invited to explore and adopt them.

Latvian Dziesmu Grmata (1992)music For Your Church Services

Music Should Teach Truth. Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.—Ephesians 5:19. Christian music should never be used simply to entertain or to fill in space. It should teach truths and express sentiments that are consistent with the Word of God. Feb 23, 2014 The request for classical music When first asked about recording suitable classical music for prior to and after church services, I wondered about the wide range of excellent CD's that are available. But then I thought, here is an opportunity to do something different, by bringing to these great compositions something of the wealth of newer.


SJNX Service

Singing: Mostly unison, and ideally suited to congregational use, with a singing president.

Accompaniment: Organ. Can be executed on manuals only, but pedal facility is helpful. The level of difficulty is about that of a typical hymn, although a small section of the Gloria finds itself in G♯ minor.

Harmonic style: Its harmonic language is somewhat un-hymn-like, though not too avant garde (which is anyway rather passe these days). It is based around a rising open fifth, chromatically descending bass, and hints of 'blues' harmony. These are all prepared in the opening Kyrie.

Internet download: The setting is freely available, subject to your acceptance of its copyright, in Acrobat PDF format (12 pages).

Crossgate Service

Singing: For congregational use, and optional choir.

Accompaniment: Organ (can be executed on manuals only) or piano. The level of difficulty is about that of a typical hymn.

Internet download: The setting is freely available, subject to your acceptance of its copyright, in Acrobat PDF format (8 pages).

Mountjoy Eucharist

Singing: A congregational setting with some optional choral harmony, and an optional descant in the Benedictus.

Accompaniment: Organ (pedals optional) or piano. About the same standard as typical hymns. The Gloria exists in two variants, a simple one in G throughout and the preferred one which modulates to G♭ for its central section.

Possibilities: Several churches mix and match parts of various settings as is locally appropriate. This setting is known to be in successful mixed use as:

  • the major part alongside 'Addington Service' Gloria (Richard Shephard);
  • the major part alongside Gloria (Dom Gregory Murray);
  • a minor part alongside 'King of Glory' (Pulkingham).

Internet download: The setting is freely available, subject to your acceptance of its copyright, in Acrobat PDF format (12 pages).

WYSIWYG communion setting

Features: unaccompanied, fully congregational, unison.

Small churches: often wish to use a musical Eucharist setting but have no regular organist or pianist. You may feel you lack the confidence or skills for harmony singing. This setting is specifically intended for unaccompanied use by a small congregation singing unison.

Larger churches: normally have the resources of choir and accompanists. You might consider this setting as a contrast, such as during the reflective seasons of Advent and Lent.

Internet download: The score is freely available, subject to your acceptance of its copyright, in Acrobat PDF format (8 pages).

For the curious: the acronym 'WYSIWYG' derives from computer geek-speak: 'What You See [Sing] Is What You Get'. See it and sing it.
