Another instrumental rendition of an SATB choral work, words and music by me. In this video the picture (me playing) is within the picture of the score which tracks with the music. Usually, it’s the other way around. #music
This sequel to Shadowy Tales will be available in time to give as a Christmas gift to friends who enjoy mysteries- or as a gift to yourself. There …WASHBOARD TALES
The second book in a mystery series by my sister. If you like southern gothic mysteries she’s great at it. Give her a try!
An instrumental rendition of a sacred song of mine, “The Lost (a song of hope).” The words are based on 3 parables.
This LINK takes you to the list of my compositions on my website. I have a bunch more pieces to add, but this is a start. I plan to have a link to scores and audio for everything possible, directly from there. So, the page is definitely a work in progress. But, wanted to let you know the page is in this new, downloadable, searchable, sortable spreadsheet format.
I’ve embeded the spreadsheet here as well so you can see what it looks like.
I’m working at getting videos of me actually playing some of the recent pieces. Then, as I go along, I hope to start playing catch-up and record videos some of the older pieces. In my 77, soon to be 78, years I’ve written hours of music. I know I’ll never make videos of it all, but at least some of it, maybe…pieces that work for piano.
Wouldn’t ya know it: someone just now bought my previous version of my arrangement. Whoever you are, thank you! But, I hope you see this post so you can download this revision. I really do think it’s better and more playable.
If you have a student who you think would enjoy playing this piece it can be purchased from my composer page at either SheetMusicPlus or SheetMusicDirect. (Those probably won’t have be listed until sometime next week…it always takes them a few days to review.) The audio can be streamed for free at https://soundcloud.com/hilton-kean-jones/st-columba-pf-solo-revision.
The blog post just before this one had a link to Garden of Stars YouTube video, a video of the “piano roll” from Logic Pro software, the software I use to record my piano playing.
But the purpose of this post is to offer you a free download of the actual sheet music if you’d like to have it…
If you’re a teacher and you’d like to have one of your students play it, please ask them to purchase it at https://www.arrangeme.com/title/A695069. It’s inexpensive.
You can listen to it (free streaming) on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/hilton-kean-jones/garden-of-stars.
If you’d like to see the “piano roll” from the last blog post, here it is again…
