Choral Edition, Volume Three

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Those of you, who are searching for new sacred choir music, will be excited about my next new volume, “Believe In Christ”; which is forthcoming within the next couple of weeks. An album full of exciting new, original SATB and SSA musical gems, some of the songs are suitable for ward choir and sacrament meeting performance, and others will be thrilling numbers, when performed by larger  SSAATTBB choirs in Stake Conference and larger settings. All of these pieces have two things in common: They are scripturally and doctrinely correct, and they bear witness of the Savior’s truths. This new upcoming volume differs from the other ones, in that scriptural referencing and vocals will not be present. However, piano recordings of each piece will give everyone a good idea of tempo and interpretation. These sound recordings will be attached  to each song purchased, for the price of the sheet music alone. Then, hopefully, people will be honest, by purchasing additional .50 copy licenses for the number of copies they need for choir performance.

 

 

FUNERAL MUSIC IDEAS

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

I’ve noticed that  people are always searching for funeral songs. Here are some very good ideas ~ to be found on my website: “Abide With Me, Tis Eventide“, “Precious Savior, Dear Redeemer“, “Because of The Love“, (in Vol. Two, “The Hope Of His Glory”; sung by my daughters Stephanie and Melissa), and “Pastoral Psalm“, (many peoples’ favorite and a new arrangement, using the lyrics to “The Lord Is My Shepherd”).  One of my upcoming volumes will consist strictly of funeral songs.

HARMONIOUS MUSIC ABOUT HOME AND FAMILY

Music, Sweeter Than We’ve Ever Heard”  was written especially for  my daughter Melissa’s rich, mellow voice. It is found in Volume Two, “The Hope of His Glory”. And don’t forget about “I Pray  For a Home“, for which I just added a FREE flute part.

ONE MONTH AWAY! YEA!

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

I’m excited! Our son, Jacob, who has been serving on a mission in Hong Kong, will be returning home in just one month. Although I’ve missed him so much, I have been very grateful for this growth experience for him. He spoke Cantonese for the majority of his mission, but for the past few months, has spoken English, while serving in the International Branch; which he has enjoyed immensely.  He says the people are humble and anxious to hear and learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Jacob is a walking miracle, because prior to his mission call, he was struck with cancer. The Lord healed him and allowed him to serve this mission. Listen to my arrangement of  “I’ll Go Where You Want Me To Go” in my Free Hymn Arrangements Album.

PROPHET OF GOD

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet of God. Of this, I bear my witness. Read his “Closing Remarks” in the October General Conference; as found in the 2009 November Ensign issue. (Easily accessible on  lds.org. ) Our only safety in this wicked world is to follow his words.  I hope to write a song about him and before this year is out, put it up on my website, along with my other songs for children in an album entitled, “The Beloved Prophets”. See and hear my other children’s songs; especially this one, which is performed by my daughter, Laura Sue, who has such a refreshing,  lovely voice.
