The music of Sharon Scholl!

Welcome to Songs for the Spirit, the website of the music of Sharon Scholl. Sharon introduces her music as follows:

The music on this website has accumulated over a 30-year period because it was needed  for a particular group or individuals.. I write music for use tailored to people of ordinary abilities who enjoy singing or playing instruments.

The choral music should be useful for churches of varied orientations, though much has been created for liberal theological situations.

The many settings of the Psalms were inspired by the very poetic modern versions of them written by the Reverend John Young, now of San Francisco, for his book "Creation Songs."

Most of the texts are my poems, tailored for particular contexts in which they were useful. Others are used by permission of the authors, publishers, or estates.

I hope you find the musical style conventional enough to suit the ears of most listeners and different enough to be enjoyable to learn.


The music is divided into sections on different subpages, There is also a page of Sharon's poetry.
