Back in the ’70s, the music of the “Jesus movement” was a rebellion of sorts against the status quo of church music. This movement featured folk and rock music with amplifiers, guitars, and drums and had a big impact on contemporary Christian music. It was the beginning of what we now call praise and worship music.
Enough time has passed that a compilation of classic praise and worship music is apropos. I have arranged these songs before, so this time around I’ve tried to give each melody a new “set of clothes” musically. People born in the ’90s or later may not know these songs, so this is a perfect opportunity to introduce these pieces to a new audience.
I have included optional transitions between arrangements where appropriate, to enable the performer to continue the flow seamlessly from one song to the next.
