So why am I only showing you part of the music?
It turns out that, unbeknownst to me, this song is STILL UNDER COPYRIGHT. It's been up on both of my websites for a while, until an alert musician wrote to share this news with me. (I'm usually very careful about copyright, but in this particular case I fooled myself, perhaps because of the old-timey feeling of "I'll Fly Away.")
Still under copyright? Down must go all my free sheets!
I am very sorry, but I cannot give it away for free.
SheetMusicPlus has publishing rights to it, and I do make arrangements for them, so I re-did some sheet music details with the piano arrangement and have placed the music over there, for sale. It is $5.00, of which I will receive 50 cents.
I have also placed the guitar tabs version in the keys of D and G over at SheetMusicPlus.
For the lead sheets, I decided to attach the vocal duet I made long ago, as it is very pretty and satisfying, so you will find the lead sheets-plus-duets over at SheetMusicPlus as well.
This beautiful song book for piano & voice "Esther, For Such a Time as This", available as a digital download, tells the riveting story of the time when Jews in ancient Persia faced a foe named Haman, and how a brave young queen risked her life to save her people.
A good choice for a singing story-teller, an operatic group, a short theater production, or a class of children!
This is the perfect easy start for little pianists.
And when they start reading white-key notes on the staff, this is a fun easy resource to say each week, "Choose a new black-key song at home this week and figure it out to show me next lesson!" They will be spending more time at the piano.
