“Come Thou Fount” has to be one of the top favorites for most of my students. One of my violin students requested it for our upcoming music recital, so I was more than happy to oblige her and arrange a violin-piano duet for us to play. I can’t wait to show her the music!
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. 🙂
I personally think that one of the classic Christian hymns second to Amazing Grace would have to be, “A Mighty Fortress is Our God.” If you’ve not read the lyrics recently, I recommend you look them up. It will do your heart good.

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.
Today, I’m excited to announce the start of a new music series!
One of my favorite hymns to really dwell on the lyrics is “Fairest Lord Jesus.” It is not the most popular hymn, but it is so beautiful! Many people are missing out by not knowing it!
I originally arranged this piece for my younger sister… adapted it a little to make it longer for publication. 🙂 This is one of those simple pieces that is slightly repetitive, which makes my students happy. 😉
