A New Christmas Arrangement

I usually write Christmas arrangements in the Spring and Easter Arrangements at Christmas, but this time, I have something new for Christmas AT CHRISTMAS TIME! (I know. Crazy.)
It is an SATB of O Little Town of Bethlehem. It starts out delicately and builds. There is one small a Capella section - Don't panic! It's short!

New Easter Hymn Arrangement

Someone requested a choir arrangement of "Christ the Lord is Risen Today." So, here it is. In SATB. The challenge with a hymn like this is to get an anthem-like sound without making it too difficult.  I started out writing the accompaniment with octaves, but thought some of you might show up at my house with torches and pitch forks. So I simplified it. Feel free to add them back in if you are the adventurous type.

Love One Another Update

In my original arrangement of Love One Another, I had the descant sung in a higher range. Later, I lowered that part thinking it would be easier. After hearing a wonderful Institute Choir from Japan sing it in its original form, I changed it back.

Love One Another

On June 12, 2019, an institute choir sang my arrangement of Love One Another for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Worldwide broadcast for Seminary and Institute training. It begins about 10 minutes and 30 seconds into the broadcast.

I Know that my Redeemer Lives

I simplified this one and recorded a new audio file that is less mechanical. I hope.
