Here is another example of our C Instrument parts for the VOICES hymnal!
The C Instrument books for the VOICES collection contain parts for every title in the collection! Here on Setting the Tone we are going to feature a new song every week so you can hear just what these parts sound like. For each title I have played the piano part directly out of the VOICES Keyboard Edition note for note (I hope!) You will hear both C instrument parts played along with the keyboard part as they appear in the book. (via Finale) I hope you will find this useful and helpful as you plan your instrumentation.
These parts are simply labeled “C.” I have chosen a flute for C1 and an oboe for C2. Use whatever you want! You can even have two keyboardists play them to involve more players. Along with the B-flat and Sax & Brass books, there’s a lot to do!
Keep in mind that you do not have to play every measure of these parts as though they were a solo instrument piece. These are meant to enhance what you already have. Leave out sections if you wish; play only C1 or C2, or switch between the two if you only have one player. Make them work for YOUR situation.
This week’s featured song is Lord, I Need You by Reeves, Carson, Stanfill, Nockels, Maher
This song can be used many times throughout the Liturgical year, especially as a Communion Meditation song, during Healing Masses, Reconciliation Services, Eucharistic Adoration, etc.
The VOICES recording of this song: Lord, I Need You
Piano and C Instrument Recording: (this recording does not take any repeats, but rather plays every measure from beginning to end)
