PraiseCharts' core product is our huge number of orchestrations that help support your worship service. Whether you have a small brass section, a string ensemble, or a full orchestra, our orchestrations will enable your group to participate! They are written specifically to go with the existing popular CD track that your people already know. Your singers and band can learn the song from the original artist's CD with the aid of our Lead Sheets and Piano-Vocal charts, while your orchestra plays along using the parts from our orchestration. If there is brass or orchestra on the original track, we have it in our orchestration. If not, our orchestration is written to play along well with the original track. Additionally, we have a small variety of other orchestration products like Jazz instrumentals, string accompaniments, and some other combinations you'll find throughout our catalog.
The Worship Band Series features a long list of popular praise and worship songs arranged for praise band or church orchestra. The series was developed by PraiseCharts veteran arranger, Dan Galbraith. These arrangements are geared towards a contemporary “R&B horns” praise band sound while at the same time being scale-able up to a medium-sized church orchestra. The core parts (rhythm, vocals, and brass) may be enhanced with the other parts in any combination. [more]
EasyBand orchestrations offer simplified instrumental lines well suited for younger, less experienced musicians. These charts are also well suited for bands that don't have a mid-week practice, and need a simple chart that they can pull off a great sound in a short amount of practice time. EasyBand arrangements are based on existing Worship Band arrangements. They share the same lead sheet, piano part, and rhythm part. There are less instrumental parts, with more part doubling in order to give musicians more confidence as they play.
The Praise Band Series is the “little brother” of the popular Worship Band Series. It is generally written at a lower difficulty level, and doesn’t include the same extent of instrumentation. The orchestration uses the same style of Vocal and Rhythm charts as does the standard Worship Band Series, but is written by a different team of arrangers headed by Brad Henderson.
Finale® has long been the industry standard music notation program. Now you can purchase the original Finale files to many of our PraiseCharts arrangements. This special add-on product empowers anyone who is familiar with Finale to be able to make some personal customizations to our arrangements, without having to spend the time re-entering all the parts from scratch. Music ministers can now have their “Finale guy” revamp the entire orchestration for their specific needs. And PraiseCharts just saved him a whole lot of time!
