Eight best-selling Dan Forrest anthems masterfully adapted for SAB choir. Each maintains the musical quality and impact of the originals, but is simplified to ensure success for smaller choirs. Vocal parts include unison, two-part, and SAB writing, reduced ranges, simpler voice leading, extra breaths and rests, and more. Piano accompaniments include thinner textures, fewer risky leaps, easier rhythms, and more choral doubling. (Recording above is “Arise My Soul Arise” (SAB) from this collection).

Collection available as a printed product or a digital download.

(Original piano accompaniments and any additional optional instrumentation from the original SATB octavos are still fully compatible with these SAB versions. Optional violin part for My Soul Arise, cello part for Come To Me, and congregational final stanza handout for To The Lamb On The Throne are included.)

Accompaniment tracks, recorded by Dan Forrest, are also available separately as downloadable mp3s or on a physical CD.

The eight titles included in the collection are listed below. Additionally, these individual links will take you to product pages for the individual octavos (available in digital-only for those who might use only 2-3 of the titles in the collection; otherwise the collection is more economical).
