USA Eastern Territory Music Publications
The following links contain information about all the USA Eastern Territory Music Publications. Many of these publications and their related recordings may now be securely purchased on-line from these pages.
American Band Journal
The American Band Journal has been published since 1948. The initial subtitle proclaimed the emphasis and focus of most of the music published: Band Music for Evangelism. The series can be played with just nine players, but sounds equally well for both small-scale ensemble and full-sized group. The ABJ is published twice a year. The Spring issue includes a variety of compositions while the Winter issue focuses solely on new Christmas repertoire.
The Triumphonic Collection features major works for brass band. The works are intended for advanced bands and present a rewarding challenge to instrumentalist and conductor alike. Sold as individual titles.
Philip Smith Signature Series
The Philip Smith Signature Series features music performed by Philip with the New York Staff Band of The Salvation Army on the critically acclaimed recording My Song of Songs. It is our hope that this music will bring pleasure and blessing to performers and listeners alike.
New York Brass Sextet Journal
This journal contains a variety of advanced arrangements for 6 brass players with a wide range of instrumentation options.
Collection of beginning brass music with an emphasis on young people developing their relationship with Jesus as well as learning a brass instrument. Suitable for use in worship settings.
American Soloists Albums
American Soloists Albums have been a useful repertoire resource since the first was released in 1959. Instrumental soloists looking for music with spiritual inspiration and impact have been able to find what they need in these collections of solos.
Salvationist Star Search Series
The Star Search program has built confidence in young people through the performance of God-honoring music and arts. There is hope that these volumes will be used to build self esteem in young people while, at the same time, give glory to God.
Carolers’ Favorites has been part of the Christmas celebration since the original book, arranged by Erik Leidzen, appeared in the 1950s. This 2006 edition includes 125 Christmas carols and holiday songs, with both vocal and instrumental parts which may be combined to form various ensembles. New features in this edition include Thanksgiving songs and eight special arrangements for advanced players.
Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs
Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs offers an attractive mix of traditional and contemporary songs for vocal groups of all ages. Each song is written as a unison piece with occasional two-part sections. The limited vocal range of these arrangements makes them practical for singing companies, youth choruses, ARC choruses, church choirs or any other established or beginning vocal ensemble.
Musical Offerings have proven useful for church pianists looking for offertories and program pieces for worship based on fairly established hymns or gospel songs. In keeping with the Eastern Territory’s desire to encourage young pianists, some of the pieces are quite easy. All of the pieces may be found useful on other various occasions when keyboard solos are wanted and it is hoped that these books will find a broad-based usage.
