Title: Beautiful Savior

Composer: Traditional Arranger: Prochnow / Weaver Grade: 2.5
 

Instrumentation: Clarinet and Piano
Description: Beautiful Savior is a very popular Lutheran hymn and this setting allows a young clarinetist the ability to access this piece with a very modern piano part. The setting requires a strong pianist who will want to work through the syncopations of Peter Prochnow. Good for solo and ensemble festivals as well as an excellent choice for special music at church. Use one chorus or all 4 choruses, simply tag the intro and coda onto your choice if necessary.

Title: I Know That My Redeemer Lives

Composer: Traditional Arranger: Prochnow / Weaver Grade: 2.5
 

Instrumentation: Clarinet and Piano
Description: Here's a sacred clarinet and piano piece that features both instruments. The piano part is grade 4+ and is syncopated like Dave Grusin's music and the clarinet part remains quite simple rhythmically and only ventures out of the staff for a couple of bars. Range for the clarinet is up to high D (once) otherwise it stays in the staff. Great for advanced MS or average HS clarinetist to perform with a staff pianist at church for special music.
