Down by the Riverside (SATB) will bring your audience to its feet!

Down by the Riverside (SATB) is now available to hear, view, and purchase.  This arrangement was the closing number on Our Children, Our World, a concert of my music in June 2019 (see earlier posts) and provides an opportunity to spotlight vocal and instrumental soloists and djembe ensemble. This uplifting arrangement of the popular spiritual carries us from the familiar tune to an African groove, as the plea for an end to violence builds to an urgent climax.

Hyfrydol settings for choir and instruments, for keyboard

Recently premiered and now available for use in worship:

Love Divine, All Loves Excelling (choral setting of HYFRYDOL with instruments), and a related solo keyboard version entitled Prelude on Hyfrydol. These were the result of a commission in 2017 from my home congregation to honor Rhonda Reece who retired after twenty-two years as Music Minister at Bethel Lutheran Church in Northfield, Minnesota. Thanks, Rhonda! And thanks to all the musicians who helped to put it together! Video of choral setting here (cue to 51:00).
