Holy Mana

My setting of an old early American hymn tune. It’s sung to a number of different texts.

Starting to get caught up on the backlog

With the post, Working Musician During a Pandemic, I said that I would be posting tracks from my music director job as they occur (typically, that’s 3 a week) plus one a day on the other days until I’m caught up on all the things I’ve done or used for my job during the pandemic. I’m almost caught up! Once I’m caught up, I’ll only post the continuing ones (as I said above, typically 3 a week…Wednesday, Friday, Sunday).

On the music videos, I’ve been putting a title page and starting the music following it…in other words, the title page is silent. I’m only doing that because I don’t know how to superimpose the titles on a video itself. The problem with doing it this way is that if you want to listen to all the music videos (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUn2RmCFhW2vbOdz7n0Ez-FjHcbFoUMam), there’ll be a silence between every tune where the title page is. That may be a good thing, or it may be a bad thing.

If you’d like to hear all the stuff, just as music, with NO silences in between, then link to https://soundcloud.com/hilton-kean-jones/sets/music-at-lakewood. That’s not all my music, but it’s all the stuff I’ve used in my job since the pandemic began and my job became 100% cyber.

If you’re interested in more of my stuff, my SoundCloud site has almost all of it back to the stone age: https://soundcloud.com/hilton-kean-jones. That profile page spotlights a few pieces that I recommend for first time listeners. I’m listing those below plus a few others.

Fantasy for Harp and Chamber Orchestra
The Geography of Dreams
Meditations and Reflections for solo piano
Tales of the Laughing Wizards
Irish Tunes
