CHRISTMAS ARRANGEMENTS

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Can you believe that it’s already November and that Christmas Programs are just a month away? New Christmas Arrangements are always so refreshing. Check out my Christmas and Easter Arrangements Album for eight lovely arrangements, as well as a new SATB CHOIR  ARRANGEMENT for “Joy To The World“, an inspirational, new  Christmas song for ward choirs, (entitled, “One Star)”,  and a delightful new children’s Christmas song, “One Bright Star”,  found in my Primary and Children’s album, as well as in the Christmas and Easter Album.  In Mountain Green, Utah, our large, talented ward choir performed my arrangement of  “Silent Night“, with a guest flutist, and it was absolutely beautiful!  “Away In A Manger” is always a joy to sing and listen to, but this is an especially nice arrangement.   For a wonderful new SATB CHOIR ARRANGEMENT, listen to “Come And Worship The Living Lord!”, and hear my daughters singing the delightful “Christmas Alleluia”, which has been performed countless times for many Christmases, as well as the tender, “Blessed Am I” (Mary’s Song), which whether sung as a solo or women’s choir, has softened and touched every heart each time it has been performed.

Today My Heart Was Touched

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

Today we attended the funeral of a young friend and mother of five; just 31 years of age and who passed away from Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I was deeply moved, as her four oldest children, her brothers and sisters, and even her mother gave beautiful tributes to her. And then her strong, supportive husband spoke of her courage, faith, and gratitude and uplifted all of us with his unwavering testimony. Her blogspot is inspirational: amberchase.webly.com. Her mother told how Amber was strengthened by the hymns and comforted by the beauty of music. For the opening song, the congregation sang, “There Is Sunshine In My Soul Today”; which fit Amber’s personality perfectly.  I’ve been inspired to do an arrangement of this hymn, because it’s also one of my favorites.  Look for it soon in my Free LDS Sheet Music and Free Hymn Arrangements. This evening, in honor of Amber’s children, I recorded an arrangement of  “I Have A Little Gospel Light”, which will be in my Primary and Children’s Album.
