New Ward Choir Director!

Our Ward had to be divided last week and I am now the new Ward Choir Director. I have two weeks to put together a Christmas program for Sacrament Meeting. We don't even have an accompanist yet. The woman who has agreed to play for us just for Christmas can only play hymns and simple accompaniments. Hmmm. Ok... My arrangement of With Wondering Awe is very simple. And we could sing Silent Night from the hymn book with the choir oohing while the sopranos sing the words for the first verse. The second verse in parts. The congregation joining in on the 3rd verse with the Sopranos singing a descant would be nice.

If anyone else is in the same boat, let me know and I'll post the descant!

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

All Creatures of Our God and King is now ready for Download. This one is an SATB. I felt it needed four parts to give it a little extra power.

I'm sorry the playback is a little weird in the beginning.  I have not been able to get rid of the hesitation between the first two notes. Sigh. I will keep working on it. In the mean time, you can get an idea what it sounds like.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

New SAB Arrangement

I have just finished an SAB Ward Choir Arrangement of Be Still My Soul. This beautiful hymn flows with comforting messages. An MP3 file will be posted soon.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
