Apparently I revised the notation for "All Creatures of Our God and King" but did not update the audio file. I will try to get that done this week.

Also, you will now be able to search my downloads page by section. So, instead of scrolling endlessly looking for vocal solos or Fun Piano music, you will be able to snap right to them! Check it out!

Love One Another

I rewrote the SAB version of Love One Another. I brought the descant down from the rafters. I hope you like the change.

From a Dedicated Choir Director

Comment or Question: I thank you for this wonderful site geared to help Ward Choirs. I was called to Choir Master a year ago, I can\'t read music, I only can tell if someone is singing flat or in tune. However, I have a fantastic 18yr old young lady who plays the piano and puts up with me asking what may appear Dumb Questions. we have sung last year about 5-6 songs from your Web Site, so I just wanted to say Thanks.

Where Love Is

Hello Sister Pratt,

We chose your arrangement for sacrament mtg on 2/12 ("Love" and Valentine's Day - that was the tie in).  We used your SAB arrangement for three men, dropped the SA parts an octave, Acapella on the third verse, and it really turned out nice.  I've attached a recording, if you are interested.

Thank you for sharing your talent.  Many were very touched by the arrangement.

Comment or Question: Hello Linda! I have to tell you that I LOVE your arrangements! They are simple and so, so beautiful. I use your arrangements almost exclusively. I am not the most musically talented person but I was called to be the Ward Choir Director in my ward last summer. We have a very transitional ward, so musical talent is sometimes in abundance and sometimes not so much. Your arrangements have been life savers for me! They have been so easy for our accompanists and choir members to learn in a short time and don\'t require a director to have lots of musical theory or skill in order to conduct them. They also retain so much of the sweet simplicity of the Spirit the hymns should bring to our worship, with just enough enhancement from their original format to give the congregation something \"new.\" I also prefer to have the choir stick with hymns for sacrament meeting (easier to get Bishopric approval, and I think sometimes new works can be a bit distracting because they are so unfamiliar to the ward members), and you have such a wonderful selection of hymns!! Please keep arranging more! I do have one question for you... I\'m trying to print \"Know This That Every Soul is Free\" for SATB and have found that the pages are set at around 14\" long and the spacing between some of the staves are quite wide. Do you have a version of the SATB arrangement that has already been formatted to fit on an 8.5 x 11? When I shrink the existing document to fit a page, it prints a bit small. Thank you, again, for sharing your amazing talent and tender testimony with the world through the music you offer on this website. I just can\'t thank you enough or quite convey to you what your music has done for me, the choir, and our ward. Thank you!! Melanie

Melanie: I will look at that hymn and repost it. Linda

Called to Serve/Let Us All Press On

This energetic duet of Called to Serve and Let Us All Press On is written for a group of Young Men and Young Women. But it would be fun and easy for a Ward Choir to sing also, so it is in the Ward Choir Arrangement section on my site, rather than the duet section.
