In addition to our formal portfolio of publications, we are constantly striving to produce additional resources to further assist local musicians and leaders in their roles. We are happy to assist you in locating music resources and advising on suitable material for teaching and training.

'Grace' - New Songs for Worship Band
This new project offers songs written by composers and lyricists who are part of, or committed friends of, The Salvation Army. Worship bands are increasingly becoming a part of our music offering and in response to that, 'Grace' has come to life. We trust that you will find these songs to be a fresh and vibrant expression of faith and an opportunity to worship in a new way.
Singing By Heart
Music & Creative Arts has partnered with Older Peoples’ Ministries to create Singing By Heart; a simple, free resource which will enable your corps to begin its own dementia friendly singing group.
Dementia is a growing concern in the UK and being able to provide a distinctive Christian singing group can be a great opportunity to witness to people in our communities who need support.
Tunebook backing tracks
Available now from SP&S - Tune Book Backing Tracks USB
The Music and Creative Arts team has recorded all 958 tunes in the tunebook. These are a piano backing, with generally 3 verses of each song (Songs will have a specific number where shorter, or if popular may have 4).
We hope that this will be a valuable resource to the territory
In addition to the regular accompaniment CDs that are released with our vocal publications, we have also generated a set of CDs containing a selection or brass and keyboard accompaniments for congregational singing. A similar collection of Christmas music is also available.
