Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

I just love bold hymns and this is one I’ve wanted to do a choral arrangement for a long time now. I felt like I chose to write this song at a good time because it was one of those songs I just sat down and wrote it all out within a little over a week. I never had any “stumped” moments, which was so nice!

I wrote a piano solo for this song (below) as well. I recorded myself playing that. It is almost the same as the choir version so you can get a feel for the song.

As I said above, I took my choir version and made a piano solo out of it. Because I wanted it to sound a lot like the choir piece, it isn’t my best piano arrangement. I promise you will love the transitions though, I get addicted to playing them!

  1. I live in the Menan, Idaho, 2nd ward, just a few miles north of Idaho Falls. I am the ward choir director and we sang your arrangement of this hymn (Praise to the Lord, the Almighty) in our sacrament meeting today. It was beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your talents through the public domain.

  2. I found your piano solo of this hymn a few years ago on and fell in love with it. I am playing it on Easter Sunday this year, and I love that it is a jubilant counterpoint to the other beautiful, but slower, songs we have on our Easter program this year. Thank you for this arrangement. It has been so fun for me to play. I love a bold musical number where I can really pound the keys in praise of the Lord!
