Back to main “Songs of Glory” page


These saxophone quartet arrangements are based on old gospel songs written by Wesley, Lowry, Towner, Bradbury, Doane, Gabriel, Excell, Bennard and others, many of which were collected by the evangelists Ira David Sankey and Dwight Lyman Moody, and also some later songs of the same genre.

I have done simple instrumental transcriptions of these songs for church instrument groups (not always the same keys as the choral originals, because I have chosen keys that fit the instruments best) and also sets of variations based on them.  The variations are more advanced and could be used at the beginnings or ends of services or even in concerts.
