The Love of God | Intermediate Piano Solo

It has been too long since I’ve posted a new video — I started out the year well with one a week… and then my focus shifted to working on the 10-song album, Reflections of the Cross. I’m just now able to put my focus back on other stuff, and then a busy summer hits. 😉 So we’ll see how I do with a new one a week.
But for this week, I have an old hymn favorite of mine. This is actually the first piano solo I’ve arranged of “The Love of God.”

 

Joshua Fit de Battle | 1 Piano, 6 Hands

I’m excited about this week’s music video, for a few reasons…

First… it’s a piano trio! How fun is that?! I’m going to try to get some of my students to play it for recital this year.

Second… I really didn’t think I’d have time or energy to do a recording this week. But once again, God has been good and supplied my need.

Third… it’s Joshua Fit de Battle! ‘Nuff said.

So, enjoy. 🙂

Take My Life, and Let it Be | Violin Quartet

Another first for WAJN: Violin quartet. 🙂 I have enjoyed arranging for string ensembles for a few years now, but as with most things, I tend to do it when I have a specific reason to do it. Well, now with about ten violin students, I have a reason! We have a homeschool tea coming up, and one of the coordinators asked if I could get a few of my students to pull something together. The theme of the tea is “Celebrating our Individuali-tea.” I thought there was no better hymn to use than “Take My Life,” because no matter how different we are, God can still use our lives for His purposes.

I recorded myself (double and triple 😉 ) so that everyone could hear the song as a completion.

If you’re interested in the music, it can be purchased here.
 
Do you play violin? If so, have you ever played in an ensemble or orchestra?
