Music composed by Teresa Cobarrubia Yoder, ASCAP

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. – Psalm 96:1

Newsworthy – July 2022

Concertato:  Graced Communion!  We Must Sing! (2022):  St. Pius X Catholic Church, Norfolk, VA premiered the concertato to Graced Communion! We Must Sing! for pastor Fr. Sean Prince’s tenth anniversary to the priesthood.  Pastoral musician and director of music Rob McBride led the choir and congregation accompanied by organ, brass, strings and timpani.  For more information about obtaining the full concertato score, contact Teresa Cobarrubia Yoder.

O Canada – Easy Piano Duet (2022):  Last year, I was contacted by a Canadian piano teacher to consider arranging a piano duet for O Canada.  The easy piano duet arrangement of Canada’s national anthem  provides piano students (early intermediate) the opportunity to play and enjoy well-crafted music for recitals, school assemblies, etc.  The music is written in the key of D to facilitate group singing so that pianists may also have an opportunity to accompany.


Unite Our Hearts– Graced Communion! We Must Sing! (2021): Perfect for both music ministers and composers, Unite Our Hearts features 54 hymn texts written by 23 writers. Each text is set to a traditional tune, so it can easily be incorporated in your assembly’s repertoire, and is also presented independently, so it can inspire composers to create new music suited to each unique hymn. Unite Our Hearts also includes scripture readings and references, commentary by the writers and suggested use for each song.

I wrote this jubilant hymn in celebration of all vocations:  clergy, religious and laity.  Called and chosen by virtue of our Baptism, we challenged to live out the mission of discipleship.  Graced Communion! We Must Sing! is also available as a single purchase by OCP.  Assembly reprints available on OneLicense.org.  For single purchase:  Graced Communion, We Must Sing by Teresa Cobarrubia Yoder.
