It seems my creative juices kick in on occasion. In fact, I’ve recently arranged a couple of hymns but need to make time to notate them. Hopefully it won’t take me 11 years for that to happen. Read on…
This setting of “Go Tell it On the Mountain” was originally conceived in 2003, and was finally notated in Finale this year. I still find it appealing after all these years, so I figure you might, too.

Looking for more Christmas arrangements for the upcoming holiday season?
As the season is short, I try not to add too many Christmas books to my already full shelves but each year I can’t resist the temptation. Here are some I purchased this year that I know you and/or your students will enjoy as well.
From James Koerts, Koerts Music
Koerts keeps kicking out great arrangements for church musicians. Here’s a digital edition that will only take space on your iPad in the forScore app but not your book shelves!
Sacred Christmas Volume One
From Wendy Stevens, Compose Create
You can count on Wendy Stevens to provide innovative and imaginative arrangements and she has not let us down this year with her setting of “Oh Christmas Tree.”
O Christmas Tree
From Larry Shackley, Hope Publishing
The title intrigued me so I purchased Shackley’s latest release. Turns out the hymn arrangements are fresh and energetic. Shackley writes in his foreword: “In this collection you’ll find carols from several countries and centuries, all interpreted with the harmonic and rhythmic colors of Celtic folk music.”
