If I Listen With My Heart – Ryan Murphy arrangement

If I Listen With My Heart – Ryan Murphy arrangement

In General Conference, October 2014, the Tabernacle Choir presented a lovely rendition of “If I Listen With My Heart,” arranged by associate director Ryan Murphy. Ryan has generously made the score available here so you can use it in your own choir.

You know that amazing feeling when you actually manage to finish something? Not just sorta finish, with a few loose ends that you’ll get to… um… eventually. I mean really finish?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your music. I don’t know what I would do without it. We are singing Promised Savior, Promised King for our Christmas program, and I was wondering if you have a background story as to how you wrote this song – what inspired you to write it. Thanks again from Cleveland, Ohio

    I downloaded your new “Come to the Manger”, and one of my pupils has already tried it out. But we’d love it in the Key of F Major. Can I get that?

    Dear Sally,

    I can’t thank you enough for sharing your wonderful music with others. I’ve been using your gorgeous arrangements for my little church groups for years. This year, we have a brand new little orchestra, mostly strings and woodwinds, very small…Do you have any christmas arrangments available for download? Silent Night is my personal favorite, but any other well known hymn would do. Thank you, again, for sharing your amazing talent with us! SDG!

    Hi, I am looking for a flute solo for sacrament meeting. What would be a good flute piece? Thanks in advance!

    Dear Sally,
    I’ve been using and enjoying your music for choirs, church events, family and personal fun since. . . well, a very long time ago (before pretty websites were a thing). Today, I discovered your blog–what a delight! Thank you for sharing your music (at a price that fits every budget) and your spunky self here.

    Sally Deford: THANK YOU! I hope you know that you are the go-to girl for everyone. Your talents are top notch, your arrangements are superb, you make us piano players stretch, but not too badly. THANK YOU for your time & efforts and especially for the way you share it all freely on your site. It makes your music attainable to us all. Love from Gilbert, Arizona.
