Story Behind the Music: New Hymns

Tonight I posted a brand new video "Story Behind the Music" to share the background for my three new hymn arrangements. In it, I explain why How Firm a Foundation in particular has special meaning. I also realized that while I have been arranging hymns for well over a decade now, I have only recorded one up until now: an original arrangement of High On a Mountain Top, which was a tribute to my late brother-in-law James Chapple. It was his favorite hymn, and I was honored to share it at his funeral service three years ago.

This video explains why I chose to record the three new hymns (The Spirit of God, All Creatures of Our God and King, and How Firm a Foundation) and how sacred music in general shows who I am.

What do you think? Did you like the video?
