When I wrote it, I was listening to a lot of the old crooners' version of Christmas songs and I hope they rubbed off on me a little. lol
Merry Christmas.

I wrote it about 25 years ago but just recorded it in my studio; every year for the past 5 years I have meant to do it before the season but it always slipped my mind....not this year lol.

Description : Genre could also be Rock. I took this old hymn and modernized it. The first step was taking the 3/4 format and changing it to 4/4, then I really got down to work on it. I was a worship leader at a church for years and was also on several worship teams; this was always a personal fave of mine to do. I hope you enjoy it.

Description : This hymn, (also known as the Navy Hymn), was my wife’s grandmother’s favourite hymn. Wasn’t familiar with it. The Wikipedia article had an arrangement which I used for this track. Harmony is not my work, but the orchestration is. Made the track more as an exercise in exploring harmony, counterpoint, and orchestration. I realize this is not anything close to the norm of tracks here on Looperman, but it’s always good to stir things up a bit, right?

Description : This was my first "serious" experiment in song arrangement. It is based on the vocal acapella by my good friend Patrick Victor. He performed this song in his megachurch to a warm reception.
Note, I'm not as pious as him :)

Of course, I knew nothing about recording, mixing, mastering, so PAY NO ATTENTION TO ANY OF THAT. :-)
P.S. Not gonna put it up for DL cuz I really just want to share them, but if you would like a copy just ask.
