pieces

These pieces are chosen from the numerical list and ordered by the Church Year. More will be added. Anglicans may also wish to include Proper Psalms, as specified in the Book of Common Prayer, from the psalm list.

They are colour coded to show level of difficulty. Green are suitable for congregations; orange are suitable for enterprising congregations and choirs of intermediate attainment; and red are suitable only for choirs. Some pieces might need transposing downwards for congregational use; please see below how to do this.

Click on S to view and hear the music from a Sibelius Scorch file. You can if you wish transpose the file up or down into a new key; click on the B flat key signature on the tool bar and follow the on-screen instructions. Click on KS for a Scorch file with added keyboard accompaniment. All Roding Music Scorch files may be downloaded and/or printed out and freely copied for amateur use. Click on the floppy disc icon or the printer icon on the toolbar.

If you are new to Sibelius Scorch or have any trouble with these files please look at the relevant page of Questions and Answers for more information.

MIDI files of all pieces are available on the Numerical List.

Click on pdf for a printable pdf file of the vocal music, or Kpdf for the keyboard version.

T shows where the tenor has the air or leading part. Soprano-led versions may be found on the Numerical List. Settings marked with an asterisk are metrical.
