  • "We Sing the Praise of Him Who Died" by William Allen Pasch (2-part, only available in Prelude). 
  • "We Sing to You, O God" by Thomas Keesecker (2-part). Gracia Grindal’s text "We Sing to You, O God" (ELW 791) is set to an old Welsh tune adapted by composer Thomas Keesecker for 2-part voices and piano. Listen to the audio. View a video. 
  • "Les Petites Soeurs" from Piano Reflections on Hymns of Healing by Anne Krentz Organ. This collection is useful for funerals, healing services, and midweek prayer services in addition to Sunday morning. These arrangements are graceful and elegant. View a sample.
