Away in a Manger

 I was asked recently to play a flute solo for our virtual Stake Christmas fireside. Naturally, I went to all my favorite music sites to find a nice arrangement.  I really did not want to do a lot of work right now. (I'm finishing up a children's book that I am writing and illustrating.)

Nothing seemed quite right. So, here is an arrangement of Away in a Manger for solo flute. The recording could have been better, but I can't afford to rent a recording studio every time I write an arrangement. (Maybe someday!)

I hope everyone is doing well at this crazy time!

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

A Thanksgiving Hymn Arrangement

Since I will feel grateful when this Covid 19 virus is under control, I wrote an arrangement of a Thanksgiving song: "Come, Ye Thankful People, Come." It is SATB, but as always, not difficult to play or sing. Keep in mind that your accompanist can leave out the bottom note in octaves if needed in order to make it easier to play.

Hopefully, we'll all be back to church soon so we can share music with each other once more.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

I Am a Child of God

Comment or Question: My father loved I Am a Child of God. He played it on his guitar for his mother's funeral. He passed away last week and my daughter and I played your flute piano arrangement at his funeral. We're grateful to have found it; it was so beautiful and just what we needed.

A Common Question

Hello sister Pratt I recently selected one of the arraignment off of your site for use in a stake choir the stake president is questioning whether we can use your material in a church meeting. Is there any reason I can’t. Have you ever had this come up please advise.

Thanks for your question. No. You do not need my permission to use any of the music on my site at a church meeting or for any non-commercial purpose.

Prayer of Thanksgiving

It's almost Easter! So, naturally, I just finished a Thanksgiving arrangement. It is Prayer of Thanksgiving. It starts with a lovely three part men's. Then the women sing the next verse in unison and split into two parts. A key change introduces the last verse which is sung in unison by the whole choir. Then the end splits into four parts. Not too hard!
