How did you chose the instrumentation for the Praise Band Series?

The purpose of the Praise Band Series is to offer a core level arrangement that addresses what most bands have - the core brass. By having less parts, the production cost is less, and we can do more songs. Then, for the Praise Band Series songs that rise to the top, we'll upgrade them to full orchestrations. Unfortunately, it means that with a trimmed down Praise Band Series arrangement, we will not be able to meet everyone's needs all at once, since all churches do have varying instrumentation. We are trying to aim at the center of the target with this series, so that all of the most common instruments are covered.
