Free song: I Surrender All

March 12, 2010 - By 

Here’s a new arrangement of I Surrender All for piano solo or violin duet with piano accompaniment. Recently commissioned for an upcoming recording, I wanted to keep in mind that not all church pianists would have two violinists “at their disposal,” so I decided to arrange this song to stand alone, if need be, as a piano arrangement. I’m thrilled with how it turned out.

As always, feel free to download and use this in your church or school. Leave a comment and let me know how it went!

James Koerts serves as the worship pastor of Mikado Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia. In addition to his full time responsibilities at the church, James is also a published composer and arranger.

  • Hi James, Just found this and we are playing it tomorrow in church. I put 3 violins on each part and it sounds really nice. It is really pretty. Thanks for offering it! -Andrea Probus

  • Sounds great! Wish I could hear it. If you get an audio or video, please share. Thanks!

  • I have really enjoyed your book of Getty and Townend Praise Classics so I was delighted to find your beautiful hymn arrangements. Quick question: I am a piano teacher and wanted to ask if I may use your free hymn arrangements with my older students. Because hymns are used less in many churches today, it is sometimes hard to engage students with them. But, I think they would truly enjoy your arrangements. Thank you for so generously sharing your gift from God with all of us!

  • Absolutely! Would be thrilled for your students to learn them.

  • Will this work for 2 violins without the piano? If so, I am thinking of using it for a violin/cello duo and bringing the 2nd violin part down an octave. Thank you!

  • It probably will be a bit empty without the piano part. You can try it, but it was really intended for piano and strings.
