    Marimba Solo - Hymns of the Church
    Arranged By Blaine Locheed

    Instrumentation: Marimba Low A (Optional Low F and C Parts)

    Program Notes: Each piece in this collection came from the Trinity Hymnal, a favorite in Presbyterian churches. The songs were selected for their suitability for marimba, and for their textual content which is not reproduced here. Because space would prohibit the inclusion of the lyrics, I recommend doing a title search at in order to gain an understanding of what the authors intend to communicate. You may find this helpful to keep in mind as you interpret each piece.

    "Blaine Locheed has arranged 14 hymns from the Trinity Hymnal (used in the Presbyterian church) for four-mallet, unaccompanied, low-F marimba. Included are: "Away in a Manger," "Silent Night," "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," "What a Friend They Have in Jesus," "Softly and Tenderly," "Spirit, Strength of All the Weak," "Fairest Lord Jesus," "Holy, Holy, Holy," "Jesus Lover of My Soul," "Eternal Father, Strong to Save," "They Have Not Known Thee as They Ought" and "When Peace Like a River." None of these arrangements presen(more...)

    • "Arrangements" are nothing special
    • June 6, 2010
    • by Jeremy Daniel
    • I would definitely recommend not buying this book. The "arrangements" that Locheed does are really not that different from a church hymnal. All of the pieces in the book are a page in length and multiple hymns would have to be combined to get a good length for performance. Additionally, you may notice in the title that only 12 titles are listed, but the book has 14. This is because two of the hymns are arranged both for low A marimba and low F/C marimba. In Eternal Father, Strong to Save, the arrangement difference is flipping some chords in the bass clef to use the low notes. In Jesus Lover of My Soul, the arrangement is done by transposing up to avoid the low notes. As a percussionist that has been playing for 12 years now, I woud definitely recommend AGAINST purchasing this piece. Instead, contact your local church and ask them if you can borrow a local hymnal. Every church I have contacted has given one to me and let me keep it. You will find good 4 part arrangement there. And if some of the chord changes are awkward, flip some chords or transpose it to an easier key.
