Parts are provided in concert pitch and in the key of F, and some tunes have been brought down in pitch so they are easier to sing.
Songs in the previous edition were grouped into 12 major sections. Their aim was to provide easier and more accessible accompaniments that assist congregations to worship God, and to ensure the musical settings did not detract from song lyrics. However, from the tune book side of things, the song book has been prepared by a group of competent people who have done this with integrity and skill, not to mention extreme dedication.
Currently, he serves as bandmaster of Peterborough Citadel Corps Band. Of course, its music appeals to me, but I have also seen the Army at work in areas of social need and during times of disaster.
He says that although a number of arrangements are used in the tune book, new arrangements were still required, taking around two years to complete.
The editing and proofing of the music was a mammoth task, with more than 20, separate parts to read. Your many sins may be forgiven; O hear the voice of J esus! Go on your way in peace to Heaven, And wear a crown with J esus.
All glory to the risen Lamb, I now believe in J esus! I love the blessed Saviour's name; I love the name of J esus. His name dispels my guilt and fear; No other name but J esus!
O how my soul delights to hear The precious name of J esus! William Hunter The name of J esus, 1. The name of J esus is so sweet, I love its music to repeat; It makes my joys full and complete, The precious name of J esus! Chorus Jesus! The Salvationist movement in recent years has opened up its doors to its colleagues in the secular brass band world, thereby making a rich resource of music available for other bands to play.
Instrumentation[ edit ] Brass bands in the British tradition are limited to cornets , flugelhorns , tenor horns known as alto horns in U. A , baritones, trombones , euphoniums , tubas known as basses in brass bands , and percussion ; but not trumpets or French horns , since they are orchestral and concert band instruments.
With the exception of the bass trombone and percussion , all parts are transposing and written in the treble clef , which means that for every instrument, the fingering for the written notes is the same.
This system, which is unique to UK-style brass bands, ensures most parts can be covered when there is less than a full complement of players.
The orchestration in Salvation Army banding is almost identical to that of secular banding except for a minor difference in the cornet section whereby the repiano is dropped and the remainder of the row is made up of parts designated 1st and 2nd two players each rather than 2nd and 3rd; and that some major pieces have a split first trombone part, the lower part usually cued elsewhere in the band.
Corps bands[ edit ] The corps church band, for example the Parramatta Citadel Band , is the basic unit of Salvation Army banding.
These are the local bands, supporting worship services each Sunday and other special events as needed by the corps. Corps bands range in size from a quartet to 40 or more players. Primarily the bands play from the Salvation Army Tune Book, for some smaller bands the playing of these simple hymn tunes is their primary function, some usually smaller bands are limited to this, however many extend to more complex pieces such as marches.

Elite bands of the Salvation Army are comparable to professional level secular competition bands, capable of playing almost anything. The primary function of a corps band is to support the Sunday worship services of the corps. Unlike a band which is primarily doing concerts, a corps band usually does not develop a standing repertoire.
The typical corps band plays one or two pieces each Sunday morning, plus accompaniment for congregational singing. The corps bandmaster must have a ready list of items that can be played without rehearsal, in case key players are missing on a particular week.
Corps bands also support a variety of other corps activities, either as a complete unit or in ensembles. Members of a corps band are usually soldiers of the corps.
Hm... Are You a Human?
The corps officer, as the commander of the unit, functions as the executive officer. Except in the larger corps, there are generally holes in the instrumentation Regional bands[ edit ] Regional bands are usually sponsored by an area command or a divisional headquarters.
Some regional bands are formed because there are no large corps bands in the area.
The regional band, drawing on several corps, can complete the instrumentation and play more complex music. Some regional bands serve as elite groups, with the better players in an area in the group. The staff band can be thought of as the extreme case of a regional band.
Many youth bands are regional in character. Regional bands are more concert-oriented than corps bands, although many regional bands serve as duty bands for large meetings and events.Will an electronic version be available?
History[ edit ] The early Salvationists, as today, took their Gospel message to the people in their own environments, largely in the streets and markets of the towns. However, from the perspective of a bandmaster, there are some additional indices that would be useful.

Will the new song book be available in PowerPoint? The staff band can be thought of as the extreme case of a regional band. In addition to piano and brass music for all songs, guitar chords are included for the first time, along with suggested introductions for every tune.
The original form came from the United Kingdom, and the forms have been updated to remove all references to the British pound. There were a number of issues that delayed this project. There's salvation in the name of J esus; Trusting in his name alone We shall find ourselves at last presented Faultless at his Father's throne. The staff bands were originally made up of staff members from the headquarters.
