Description: Feed My Lambs is a powerful and resonant ballad composed by Chuck Marohnic, beautifully scored for jazz ensemble by arranger David Yackley. This straight 8ths chart is a great feature piece to spotlight an out­standing tenor saxophone soloist, such as in a festival showcase setting. It is a powerful, expressive piece.


Originally part of Marohnic’s The Jazz Hymnal publication, Feed My Lambs is now one of the many wonderful compositions in his The Story Reborn series, where it is a vocal/choral piece. The Story Reborn uses music to convey vari­ous powerful stories, analogies, and accounts in Scrip­ture.


This big band arrangement is of intermediate difficulty.
