A heads up on JMC’s BOGO sale, and some website trivia.
A new arrangement of “The Angels Came to Sing,” for either high (sorta) or low voice, both with optional bells.
My 2017 Christmas Card Carol… one arrangement with three different sets of words.
Finding translations here is super easy. This is what you do:
A brand-spankin-new website… that works pretty much like the old one. 🙂
Step by step instructions on resizing scores or text using the Personal Composer demo.
A few ideas to help directors make choir a fun, uplifting experience.
One of the questions that pops up quite often about site content is, “Why is this vocal demo in a different key than the score?”
What is *really* happening here when it looks like things are just calm and drowsy? A cat stampede.
Many of the songs here on the site include obbligatos that specify the use of a “C instrument.” People often write to ask, “What exactly is a C instrument?”
So without further ado…
Each year I try to do a “Christmas Card Carol” to give away in lieu of fudge or cookies. (That’s because you don’t want my cookery. Trust me.) I never seem to get them done in time to be useful for the current year, and this year’s is no exception. So…Here on Christmas Eve Eve (is that a thing?) is this year’s carol…
New this time: a congregational accompaniment for “The First Noel.”
A thing I do to drive myself a little crazier: “finish” something, make it public, and then regret it because it was just. plain. wrong. I’m glad the Lord knows what He’s doing when I don’t.
“There is a green hill far away…” If ever there was a phrase designed to evoke images in the mind of a child, it’s that one.
In which I try to build a choir one voice at a time. With mixed results. 🙂
