On a Christmas Long Ago

On a Christmas Long Ago

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…

Hush the Baby: a tale of two melodies

Hush the Baby: a tale of two melodies

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.

    Sr Deford, I’m working with a soloist wanting to sing Write Thy Name Upon My Heart. It’s just a smidge out of range for her. Any chance you’d have an electronic copy of the solo arrangement in DMaj that could be dropped to CMaj?

    My son and I need to sing for my Uncle s funeral. I would like us to the the Mack Wilberg , Marta Keen version of Homeward Bound. Have you thought about arranging that one?

      No, sorry. This one is under copyright, and I don’t like dealing with royalty issues. In any case, if you want to use the Mack Wilberg arrangement, I couldn’t help you since I’d be arranging an arrangement. 🙂

    I love your music and thank you for sharing it. Are you planning on writing an SATB arrangement of “Peace in Christ”?

    I want to thank you for the beautiful music that you have allowed to be on line. Our choir has limited or no budget for music and it is a blessing to have been able to use your music to augment the hymn book.

    I love your arrangements. I’m wondering if you have any piano duets. I’m trying to find some piano duets of church music.

    Sally,

    There are no songs about the betrayal and trial of Christ that I can find among LDS composers. I’ve looked in non-LDS sources and am yielding almost the same result. I wonder if this might be a topic you would enjoy working on. Thank you for the many lovely compositions you have shared with all of us!

    All the best!

    What a wonderful talent you have! Have you ever thought of doing an arrangement of Oh Savior, Thou who wearest a crown with its original melody? I have looked high and low for one and have not been successful in my treasure hunt…

      I have thought about it, but it probably won’t happen. The Hassler/Bach setting isn’t my favorite melody, so it’s not likely to be one I’d choose to arrange. 🙂

    Our Stake is looking for the accompaniment copy for the piece that a youth choir sang for this last October, Saturday afternoon session the piece is I’m Trying To Be Like Jesus/He Sent His Son youth choir arrangement by Sally Deford –

      Marilyn, I wish I could help you! I don’t have publishing rights on that one, so I can’t post it here. It’s possible that the Church Music and Cultural Arts department could get you a copy if you ask them–no guarantees, but they’ve done it before with other songs. Eventually I know they hope to have that one on music.lds.org, but it takes awhile.
