Call for Compositions!

We know you guys are Barons of the Organ Bench, Counts of the Choir, and Belles of the... well, Handbells! But SJMP knows you go deeper than that. Who among you are the Commandants of Compositions?

While we're starting to fill our publication schedule for 2022, we'd like to invite you to submit any of your polished original works for publication! Show us your beautiful, bold, or light-hearted scores. We'd love to see what you've been up to - now or anytime.

New Trisagion and Upcoming Webinar!

We're thrilled to have published a new work by Dr. Marty Wheeler Burnett (of COVID Conversations fame). It's a setting of the Trisagion for unison voices, handbells, and flute (or other treble instrument) that could be very effective this Advent.  Now available exclusively to SJMP Members!

Dr. Burnett will be talking about this and more during an upcoming webinar by Virginia Theological Seminary - Hope Incarnate: Planning Worship for Advent and Christmas. You can attend this Wednesday, September 16th from 3-4:30 PM ET.
