If modern worship songs were recorded in the 1980’s, what would they sound like? Would there be influences of Boston, Journey, Phil Collins/Genesis and other groups in the sound?
I think so.
I wanted to go a little ‘old school’ worship and I thought Open the Eyes of My Heart would be PERFECT!!! This arrangement of Paul Baloche’s classic worship song has a nod to the 80s band ‘Boston’. You’ll hear the guitar on the intro and know what I mean. This turned out to be a GREAT version of this ‘oldie but goodie’. LOTS of energy and a great way to open the service.
Many modern churches, through inception or adaptation, are utilizing a rhythm driven style of music. What I have tried to do through AnderKamp Music’s ‘Horns & Rhythm’ series is to create arrangements that are based around the modern rhythm section BUT that also feature a horn section. My purpose is intentional…to give more instrumentalists the opportunity to use their gifts to glorify God.
Rhythm Section (includes rhythm chord chart, written out Piano/Keys/Synth AND written out Bass parts)
Additional parts (NOT substitution parts):
Flute 1 & 2
Clarinet 1 & 2
Violin 1 & 2
Each arrangement is recorded with 2 trumpets, 2 saxes, 2 trombones and rhythm section. The additional parts are included for woodwinds and strings to add a sort of ‘rock orchestra’ feel to the arrangements. We’ve provided those parts to allow even more folks the opportunity to use their gifts.
