Giving, continued

As promised, here is the vocal/piano version of the score and a mp3 demo. Much thanks to my friend Stephanie Bennett, who lent her voice to this project.

This arrangement came about after listening to various musical numbers that sounded way too solemn for my tastes. Why is it that hymns or musical numbers sound like funeral dirges? Perhaps it’s the organ and the tendency to conduct under tempo. Anyway, I believe that the gospel makes you happy, and should be expressed as such.

    Jared,
    Thank you so much for sharing your talents. My choir, Andulhea Heritage Chorus, just loves
    your SATB of Give, said the little stream. We are singing it in our concert, “The River” very close to the Schuylkill River in Hamburg PA on Sept 14th. It will open the second half of the program and just
    bring joy and gratitude to our audience and singers. . . . and our Lord.
    I will take a moment to acknowledge you and your wonderful arrangement.
    God Bless
    Don Schilke
