My Christmas Card Carol for 2018 is called “Will You Come to the Manger?” It’s set for solo voice, and for duet.
A new children’s song. An album finished. A fun video. And a Happy Dance.
In which grandson #3 gets his song, and we hear from a lovely new flutist/vocalist.
Three new versions of “If the Savior Stood Beside Me.”
The latest chapter of my “Songs for My Children and Grandbabies” saga.
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.
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. 🙂
Info on the medley of “Search, Ponder, and Pray” and “I Think When I Read That Sweet Story”, and a simplified version of “If I Listen With My Heart.”
A new Christmas hymn, “As Sudden Angels Filled the Night,” written with Toni Thomas; and an arrangement of “And His Name Shall Be Called Wonderful” by Kurt Bestor.
A trial and a blessing may be one and the same.
