Drifting Part Two


I composed three "Drifting" pieces in the same day.  This is the second one.
And honestly, I love this one.. it is one of my favorites.  You see, I don't plan on these compositions.. they just happen.. like a fortunate accident.
This one is slightly different than the first, but they go together.. they capture the soft lilting lullaby that the water sings to us.
I love these moments.. whether I am at the beach or the lake.. when the soft breeze teases across your face and all is right with the world.

Down at the Cross & Footsteps of Jesus



My hope is that by recording these hymns without the vocals, other churches or singers can utilize these accompaniments for those cases where they do not have a pianist or other instrumentalist.

Please listen and enjoy or even sing along.. and feel free to use them as you wish.

Holy, Holy, Holy!


For several years, people have asked if I could provide them with "just the accompaniment" music for many of the hymns that I play on Sundays at church.

Here's one we played last night.  "Holy, Holy, Holy!" words by Reginald Heber (1783–1826) ; music by John B. Dykes (1823-1876).  The overall volume is a little low, and the bass drum is a little loud.  And I messed up and hit a c-natural on one the verses.. but otherwise, I think it's nice.

I begin it with a standard 8 measure introduction and then it begins.  I do 4 verses.  If you know the words, feel free to sing along.
