Free MultiTrack: The Glory by EQ Worship

The free track for February is The Glory and comes with a free simple chord chart. EQ Worship is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Tri-Cities. This track is a single from their recent album, My King is Coming and comes with a simple chord chart.

There’s a lovely electric guitar line and Cassidy Filbrun’s vocals are a real stand out feature. So many producers of MultiTracks don’t include vocals – we think they are so important especially for smaller churches who don’t have many musicians or whose singers struggle to come in at the right place without a lead. We particularly like the way the song builds and brings in a male harmony line towards the end.

EQ Worship draws on the strong musical talents of Brandon Bee and Zach Lamberson, who are worship leaders from Washington State in the USA and who serve a variety of ministries both locally and around the world. They freely give of their various resources to help churches worldwide.

The song comes with the original WAV files for use in a DAW such as Ableton, and Transition Tracks for Worship Backing Band’s Mac/PC or iPad Transition MultiTrack Player. MultiTracks are the simplest and least expensive solution to get a full band sound from your worship team, even if you’ve only got a couple of musicians.

Free MultiTrack and Split Track: Hallelujah based on The Messiah Chorus

The video below contains a short audio sample of each so you can hear the general quality and contemporary approach. The song melody and lyrics are unchanged from the traditional carols but the music is updated with a modern worship band sound.

On the website you can select any song and listen to a 30 second audio sample.

Check out all our Christmas carols here.

Free MultiTrack: Anchor of My Soul

The free track for March, Anchor of My Soul, is by Calvary Chapel worship leader Kevin McCarthy. Kevin says “I love music. I love attitude. I love a good hook. But mostly I’ve come to find the meaning of ALL of it, through a love for God and His Son Jesus Christ.”

Anchor of My Soul is the title track from his album of songs designed to point others to the heart of God through songs that bless and encourage those who sing and hear them.

It was inspired by three passages: Isaiah 43 where God promises to be with us despite walking through rivers or fire, Daniel’s protection from the Fiery Furnace and Hebrews 6 which describes our hope as an anchor of the soul that is sure and steadfast.

Do enjoy sharing this song with your congregation.

The MultiTrack is designed for use in Worship Backing Band’s Mac/PC or iPad Transition MultiTrack Player. This song is not configured for other WAVs.

It is available totally free-of-charge this month only and comes with a free chord chart. Please remember to note the CCLI number 7101400 for reporting song use in church.
