    Sally,
    Do you have a copy of the sheet music with the violin obbligato written with the piano accompaniment? It’s difficult for the violinist to know just when to come in without spending a lot of time figuring it out…..

    Hi Sally,

    are you planning to put a low voice solo accompaniment on here sometime. I’m afraid I am a frustrated low voice alto so most of this is just too high for me. I love this song and have sung it several times for Easter at church and it really brings the spirit into the meeting, but can’t do it unless my accompanist is able to be with me as there is no one to play for me. If I could get an accompaniment it would enable us to perform it more often.

    Love your music, thanks so much for sharing.

    Joy

    Beautiful song! Is the Allyse Taylor accompaniment track coming anytime soon? I would love to share this song at church, but Heather’s version is a little too high for my voice.

    I have a friend who’s singing this and they asked me to play the obligato but I noticed that it’s a measure longer than the arrangement. Which measure is supposed to be cut?

      Oh bother. It’s the right length–the measure numbers are just wrong. I’ll have to get it reprinted. In the meantime, treat measure 1 of the obbligato as an eighth rest and it should fit. :(

        I treated the first measure as a pick up and after the 8 measure rest it sounds as if the obligato is behind a measure. I took away a measure of rest, so 7 instead of 8, and it sounds like the recording you have now.

        Good. I’m glad you got it sorted out. I have no idea what happened with the measure numbering on that thing… **sigh**

    Hi Sally, I downloaded and began to print out “Gethsemane” for SATB, but the pages that were coming out of the printer were for guitar accompaniment, not for the SATB. The preview looked right, with the different parts, but something went wrong between the file and the printer. The SATB version is the only file from your entire website that I downloaded, so I have no idea why or how I got the guitar version! In the place of the usual notes along the bars are these large letters, such as “HH HHG”, “U”s with the accent mark, “O”s with the diagonal slash, etc. Please help!

      Hmmm…. I’m sorry it’s giving you trouble. What you describe (though it doesn’t sound like your typical guitar music!) is typical of a computer that’s having a hard time handling the PDF file. I usually kick the tires (IOW, restart the computer), then try the suggestions on the FAQ. Other than that… ???
