Intermediate Arrangements of Gethsemane
There are many vocal and choral arrangements available for purchase on her site, as well as an illustrated Gethsemane story book including sheet music. Another favorite early intermediate arrangement of Gethsemane that I love to play is in Marshall McDonald's book Simply Sacred 2.
While this simplified version from The Friend is suitable for some intermediate-level students I wanted something accessible for my beginning piano students to play as well.
