Click to enlargeThree Short Pieces for Choir (SATB)

David Hepburn created these three pieces for SATB for those instances where a short choral piece is needed in a worship service.

The three pieces are "Sing Unto the Lord," a bright call to worship, "Hear Our Prayer," a thoughtful prayer response, and "This Lord, I Pray," which could precede or follow a missions prayer or close a service.

The three pieces follow in order in the midi sound sample. The lyrics of each are:

SING UNTO THE LORD by David Hepburn

Give thanks unto the Lord, the Lord!
Call upon His name.
Give thanks unto the Lord, the Lord!
Call upon His name.
Sing unto him. Sing, sing psalms unto Him.
Sing psalms unto Him.
He is the Lord our God.
Sing unto the Lord all the earth!
Show forth from day to day His salvation!

HEAR OUR PRAYER by David Hepburn

Hear, oh hear our prayer, oh Lord.
Hear, oh hear our prayer, oh Lord.
Incline Thine ear unto our prayer,
And grant us Thy peace. Amen.

THIS, LORD I PRAY by David Hepburn

Fill me with compassion, send me to the harvest,
Use me for Thy service,
This, Lord I pray.

Let me know Thy power others to persuade, Lord,
Use me every hour,
This, Lord I pray.

In a world of conflict, give me faith to triumph,
To Thy calling faithful be,
This, Lord I pray. Amen.

THREE SHORT PIECES FOR CHOIR by David Hepburn, for SATB choir, a cappella, comes in a PDF file of 1376K that contains seven pages of complete score and a license page, eight pages in all. Each piece is approximately 1:00 in length.

The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"

Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."

Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
