We’ve all been there...
Finding high quality and creative SAB and/or accessible SATB hymn arrangements can be difficult!
And finding music that compliments smaller choirs typically made up of aging voices is definitely a challenge.
Far too often church music publishers publish music that's just too difficult for many church choirs, and when they do publish something accessible it's unimaginative, trite, and uninspiring.
We want to set up our choirs to succeed! We want them to feel confident in the way they sound. We want the message of the music to be conveyed in a meaningful and excellent way.
We serve a creative God who deserves our best! And our choirs want to offer their best!
Imagine your aging vocalists singing in their actual vocal ranges and contributing to the overall sound of the choir in a beautiful and wonderful way!
Wouldn't you love it if your aging sopranos had beautiful lines to sing that actually complimented their limited vocal ranges?
Wouldn't it be fantastic if the bass line from the SAB pieces in your library were arranged in such a way that your vocalists didn't get bored (especially the tenors!) and the vocal part didn't exceed certain pitches that places strain on the aging baritone/bass voice?
My name is Chris Owenby, founder and owner of The Resourceful Church Musician (RCM). And like you, I am a choral director.
For years I struggled to find high quality SATB, SAB, and Two-Part pieces that complimented the smaller choirs I was used to working with. I found a lot of pieces arranged for smaller choirs to be unimaginative, trite, and poorly written. (Some good ones existed, but they were few and far between...)
But, then I began composing/adapting pieces to fit the smaller vocal groups I was working with. And over time, I realized how to craft a piece or adapt a piece to set my small choirs (primarily made up of aging voices and unbalanced voices) up for success!
I also began surrounding myself and learning from other church music directors who had proven track records of working with smaller vocal groups and aging voices AND establishing vibrant and excellent music/worship programs.
I learned how to set my small choirs and vocal groups up for success so that they felt confident in presenting their music.
They weren't distracting from the worship services anymore, they were contributing in an excellent way!
