Church Hymns for Marimba (Marimba)

by Patrick Roulet
Usually ships in 2-3 weeks(1)
Page Samples Available


The hymns in this collection are drawn from traditional European melodies, American tunes, and African-American Spirituals. They represent some of the most recognized tunes in Western music. Many of these hymns have been played during important events in history, from funerals of American presidents to royal weddings and coronations. Some have even become the subject of legend: “Nearer My God to Thee” was allegedly the last hymn that the band played on the RMS Titanic before it sank. The four-mallet arrangements are all playable on a 4 and 13 octave low A marimba. The hymn tunes and two-mallet arrangements can be played on marimba, vibraphone, or a standard set of orchestra bells. The following hymns are included in this volume: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God • Abide with Me • All Things Bright and Beautiful • Amazing Grace • America the Beautiful • Be Still My Soul • Be Thou My Vision • Eternal Father, Strong to Save • For the Beauty of the Earth • Guide Me, O Great Redeemer • Holy, Holy, Holy • Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee • Let Us Break Bread Together • Love Divine, All Loves Excelling • My Country, Tis of Thee • Nearer My God to Thee • O Sacred Head, Now Wounded • Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow • Rock of Ages • Shall We Gather at the River • We Gather Together • Were You There.
