Many churches have a number of musicians within their congregations, but due to a lack of time and resources it is often difficult to provide opportunities for them to unite in utilizing their musical skills to support their congregations in sung worship. Instrumental Praise is a new series of publications that provides flexible arrangements of well-known hymns and songs that will work with practically any group of instruments and can be used weekly or for special seasonal services.

This unique collection will provide churches with everything they need to develop instrumental ensembles for accompanying and supporting the congregation in their singing.

The book contains piano, guitar, and vocal parts of all the hymns and songs, whilst the accompanying CD-ROM provides an extensive range of instrumental parts to print out for the following instruments: Flute I, Flute II or Oboe, Clarinet I and Clarinet II in B-flat, Alto Saxophone, Bassoon, Horn in F, Trumpet in B-flat, Trombone, Tuba, Percussion/Drums, Voice, Guitar, Piano, Violins I and II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass.
