Violin & Viola Arrangments

As stated on my blog, I've decided to devote a section to Hymn Arrangements for Violin and Viola, both accompanied and unaccompanied.  Just one for now (also listed in my other arrangements section), but more soon to follow.







  • More Holiness Give Me
A violin solo with Harp or Piano Accompaniment.  With a quiet simplicity, this is an excellent choice for a sacred setting.


Score
Violin



  • Follow the Prophet

A duet of "Follow the Prophet" for two violins, violin and viola, or two soprano instruments.  I wrote this for my wife and I to play at my Nephew's baptism.  Violin I has some either shifting or some extensions, but very manageable to play.

Viola (Optional in place of Violin II)




A duet with piano accompaniment, this arrangement has 2 violins (or other instruments - I played my viola with my wife on oboe for a sacrament meeting), with simple parts, but beautiful harmonies.  Piano part a little more challenging, but still overall quite manageable.  An excellent choice for a short musical number.  Comments from the congregation were, in fact, mostly that they wished there were more of it.  Written most especially for younger players.

Violin I
Violin II

Violin and Viola with Piano Accompaniment:
Score
Violin
Viola




This Trio was written for a Night of Music in our Stake.  Each instrument has the melody at some point, and the each verses changes slightly to help feel like something new is being played.

Score
Violin I
Violin II
Viola
