Simply Sacred Strings (cello with piano accompaniment)

Please select your preferred format:

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.

Keeping string teachers in mind, Simply Sacred Strings includes suggested fingering and helps reinforce various pedagogical techniques throughout. 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.  

Simply Sacred Strings features the following ten hymns and primary songs:

  • Come, Follow Me
  • I Am a Child of God
  • Nearer, My God, to Thee
  • Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
  • When I Am Baptized
  • God Be with You Till We Meet Again
  • There Is a Green Hill Far Away
  • Amazing Grace
  • Abide with Me!
  • Did You Think to Pray?

This two-product package includes: a cello solo booklet with a piano accompaniment book. (Both of these products are also available to purchase individually).

Consider the BONUS optional string duet parts that coordinate perfectly with the solo part.

The instrumental solo part booklet is available for violin, viola or cello –all of which match the same piano accompaniment (however only one solo instrumental part can be played at one time unless you purchase the bonus optional string duet parts).

The piano accompaniment book includes a minimized cue line above the piano part, showing the pianist what the cellist is playing. 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: 

  • Hard-copy book (shipped to your home)
  • PDF digital download (a link to download will be emailed to you after checkout)

Difficulty level: late beginner/early intermediate.
