Arranged by Marshall McDonald, Simply Sacred Strings is designed for the late beginner/early intermediate instrumentalist. However, even advanced players will find it well-suited for prelude music and a variety of sacred settings.

It is perfect for anyone of any age who is looking for beautiful hymn and primary children's song arrangements that sound more difficult than they are to play.

Please note that this cue line is the violin part (regardless of which instrumental booklet you purchase). Although there are subtle differences in other solo parts and the clefs they play in, the violin cue line is an adequate representation of what any solo instrument plays.
This sheet music booklet is available in two formats:
