From a Ward Choir Director in Idaho

Thank you for sharing your gift! I am the director of our ward choir in Nampa, Idaho. Last year, we sang three of your arrangements. In April, we sang "I Wonder When He Comes Again" with a lovely group of Young Women singing the solo part. In May, we sang "Lead Kindly Light", starring the alto section. In October, we sang "I Know that My Redeemer Lives."

Sweet Hour of Prayer Rewritten

When I recently rewrote Sweet Hour of Prayer, I inadvertently skipped four measures of the obbligato in the final draft. An alert Ward Choir director emailed me and pointed out the problem. Thank you!! THAT must have been fun to try to sing with the obbligato playing the wrong part with the choir!
In any case, it is now corrected.

New Song Suggestion

I played my new song, "A Part of You" for our Primary President. She suggested that it could be used for other times when family or friends are moving away or going on a mission, etc.

Great idea!

A Goodby Song for Primary

Our Primary President came to me a few weeks ago and asked me to write a "Goodby" song for Primary for leaders and teachers who are moving away. At the time, I told her that I thought the hymn "God Be With You Til We Meet Again" would meet the need without writing a new song.

Then I substituted in Primary and realized that wouldn't work well in Primary, mostly due to the length of the hymn.

So...Yes, I have written a new "Goodby" song for Primary. It is called "A Part of You." I will be posting it shortly.
