Gesu Bambino: SMPress Contest Submission!

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Just to let my readers know….

I just submitted an advanced Christmas two piano arrangement of Gesu Bambino to SMPress Holiday Arranging Contest.

The contest selling period goes from October 18th through December 1st. The contestant who sells the most profit during this period wins $300 cash prize. So…if you’re wanting a copy….if you don’t mind waiting until the contest selling period. Thanks!

I would like to use the cash prize for the betterment of my website.  Attending the Composer Symposium this past July was a result from winning the Spring competition of last year.  Thanks to all of you who made that possible! I learned ALOT too!

This piano duo will be available on our site after the SMPress contest.

Just sang “Will You Receive His Gift?” in a trio for our recent revival with Dwight Smith.

I enjoyed singing this song about Jesus’ free gift of salvation and how one only needs to believe and receive this wonderful gift. This particular arrangement was easy to learn…great harmony…allowing us to focus on the message. Thank you Niki Lott for writing such a  beautiful song!

 

 

“The Potter’s Hands” Words & Music by Mina Oglesby

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

Your ladies’ ensemble will love singing this beautiful song by Mina Oglesby.  The text describes how we are just plain old clay and how God is our Potter.  He’s molding our lives to make us vessels of love.

I hope to reunite the ladies’ ensemble I directed years ago that sang this actual arrangement and share it with you all via video.

I do have a youtube video of Mina singing “The Potter’s Hands” and will share below…(THE ACCOMPANIMENT ON THE VIDEO IS NOT MY ARRANGEMENT) *LISTEN TO AUDIO SAMPLE)

“Nearer My God to Thee” (with added bow & slur marks for violin)

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

I met a nice young lady at the Composer Symposium this past summer who attends the church where my husband and I were married!

She is a great violinist and offered to add the violin bow & slur marks to my arrangement of “Nearer My God to Thee”.  It has taken me a while to finalize the arrangement but now complete and available in our music store.

A big thanks to Abby Phillips for adding the violin markings! See video of Abby below playing her own arrangement of “I’d Rather Have Jesus” in her home church.

Nearer My God to Thee

New Sacred Vocal Solo or Duet: A Passion for Souls

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

A-Passion-for-Souls-image-wm

I have always loved the words to A Passion for Souls by Herbert G. Tovey but have always wished for a different melody.

While looking over the words last week…a melody begin to flow in my head and I quickly penned it to paper.

At first I thought of writing it as a solo but while singing through it with a friend I soon realized a harmony part would be nice 🙂

My friend and I sang it this morning at church.  Here’s the video.

I’ll be out of town this coming week but plan to publish it when I return.
