Below are PDF scores for a number of older hymns I’ve arranged for use in Reformed or Reformed Baptist worship services. All are free for use in congregational worship services.
What Child Is This
Text: William C. Dix (1865)
Music: Trad. English melody (16th c.), harm. Kris Shaffer (2009)
‘Tis Finished! The Messiah Dies
Text: Charles Wesley (1762)
Music: Trad. Welsh melody, harm. Kris Shaffer (2008)
The King Shall Come when Morning Dawns
Text: anon., trans. John Brownlie (1907)
Music: Gesangbuch der Herzogl (1784)
(nothing novel here from me besides the text/music combination)
Cantique de Noël (O Holy Night)
This is largely the original music, with a new translation of two verses of the original text by Jessica Moyer, a friend from New Haven. The original text was much more explicitly Christian than the common English translation (which was made by a Unitarian), and Jessica’s translation preserves that very well. I also arranged several instrumental parts that can be used for a variety of ensembles. Please contact me at first DOT last AT gmail DOT com if you would like those parts, or would like them set for another ensemble type.
Text: Placide Cappeau (bf. 1893), trans. Jessica Moyer (2010)
Music: Adolphe Adam (1847), arr. Kris Shaffer (2010)
