The holidays have been bustling and busy with get-togethers with relatives and friends. I was pleased to play and lead beautiful Christmas music at Echo Ridge and Walker at Hazel Ridge during December.
I completed the broad sketch of "Christmas Caroling Party," a collection of 21 carols arranged for 3-part voices. I am looking forward to Christmas 2015 to have a couple of production and distribution glitches worked out (that nasty Grinch). Thanks for the support, Paul and Dan.
Two more pieces will be released next year, "Chief of Sinners" (SATB, Augsburg Fortress) and "Puer Nobis" (Handbells, Beckenhorst). And I continue to upload music to a digital self-publishing site. Here are two new arrangements for string quartet:
And I am working with Ruth on some website changes and forays into social media, like Twitter.
After that nice warm December, I guess we'd better accept the frigid January that is predicted. Stay warm, and I'll try to do the same.
