Update 10/28/21: Sheet music for this piece can now be purchased at gregscheer.com.
My friend Carlos Colón directs worship at Baylor University. He recently asked if I had anything for string quintet that might work as an interlude for an upcoming Advent service. And he needed it quickly. I sent him a few ideas, including this fugal intro to the Advent hymn, “Savior of the Nations, Come.” I thought I was going to be able to simply adapt what I had written before, but once I got started it was clear that I needed to rewrite it from the ground up. Two days from inquiry to completed score. That’s how I roll.
My name is Sam Meade and I was wondering if I might be able to get the string parts to Savior of the Nations, Come? It is very well written and would be super appropriate for Christmas gigs or a youth string orchestra program.
Thanks for writing good music,
Thanks, Sam! I’ll email you with parts in a minute.
Hi Greg, yes I’d love the parts, too! Sam, above, and I work in many of the same strings ensembles.
Sure thing, Becca!
Hi Greg- your timing on this piece is just amazing. I am in need of something- in a hurry for this hymn for Sunday morning. Could I possibly get the parts?
It’s on its way!
