Oh Come all Ye Faithful in Russian!

First, thank you for your generosity in sharing your talents.  My wife was both stake and ward choir director in Idaho a few years ago and we appreciated opportunities to sing arrangements we could download.

Currently, we are serving in Novosibirsk, Russia and wanted to sing your arrangement of "O Come All Ye Faithful" with our little group/branch of about 8 Russians plus 4 Volunteers plus us.  We took your music and inserted the Russian words into your arrangement.  This is not our translation, but the words were taken from the Russian Hymnbook.

We didn't know if you would be interested in a copy of our version, but felt you might.  Therefore, I am attaching a WORD version of the alteration for you.

Thank you again.

Who Knew?

I just found out that the website:
that has many of my arrangements posted has limited playback. Instead of playing an entire MP3, it only plays about the first 30 seconds of an arrangement.  I understand that. They have hundreds of songs and can only dedicate a short space to each one. So if you want to hear the whole playback, you'll have to go to my website:

Another issue is that they have so many composers on their site that they ask all composers to post their own new arrangements. I get that also. It's a lot of work to continually post new music. However, it is about all I can manage to compose an arrangement, record it, and post it on my own site. Let alone go to yet another site to post it again.

The end result is that is still a great resource, just be aware that it won't have complete playbacks and it may not have the most up to date arrangements posted.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
