This arrangement was for an Easter program in 2016. It’s preservation is miraculous. Thank goodness for backup discs. Ugh! As I got it ready for this Website, I realized again that I was working with a spectacular group of people as we performed. They just did it.

I don’t have that original narration either, but my experience has been that what is good for one program doesn’t necessarily work for someone else’s. Inspiration is a personal thing and doesn’t always translate well.

This has always been one of my favorite hymns. One of my favorite things to do in the evening is turn out the lights and let my hands do what they want. This song is a result of one of those sessions. I turned on the recorder and enjoyed writing it. I’ve played it at…
This arrangement of a Restoration Hymn was part of a project I have been privileged to work on with my brother-in-law, John Lloyd. We both hope something comes of it someday. He is working on a video and wanted piano music. This piece actually went a step further. We will see what becomes of it….
This song was written and sung in 1980 for the baptism of my oldest daughter. My parents had lots of grandchildren, and she was one of the oldest. It’s been heard a numerous baptisms through the years.
