Hymns - A Piano Study of Meditation & Inspiration

Recently, I have been giving a reading on the background leading up to the composition of various traditional hymns each week in church, followed by playing a "piano meditation" of that piece.

I am doing this, in part, to build my catalog of potential hymns that can be featured in my performance of my History of Hymns program at YMCA of The Rockies as part of their Christian Artist Series. My performance for this series will take place at Ponder Chapel on the YMCA of the Rockies grounds in Estes Park, CO Tuesday, July 28.

This YouTube playlist is presently growing each week. Please keep checking it as it grows and listen often! Look for a recorded cd to eventually be made of these and other hymns.

Tis The Season: Scenes For a Christmas and Winter Holiday Musical

Tis The Season: Scenes For a Christmas and Winter Holiday Musical These cute scenes are written to be part of a Christmas or Holiday elementary school program. Use what fits your song choices. You can add, edit, delete and/or mix up dialogue to fit those choices. Due to the current climate of many public schools, the theme is primarily secular in nature. A more religious-themed Christmas script will soon be available. No real costuming is necessary, other than to perhaps wear dress-up holiday-themed clothes or even pajamas to reflect the Christmas nature of the subject matter. This Christmas/Holiday elementary musical is available at our TeachersPayTeachers site. Here is the address/link: Christmas/Winter Holiday Musical. It is published by Alpine Road Publishing, a subsidiary of JavaMusiK. Written by Jeff Van Devender.
