Endless Song 

Just finished ENDLESS SONG, a new melody on the text of "How Can I Keep From Singing?" for Josh Phelps and the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Oklahoma City.   OK, there are many, MANY arrangements of Robert Lowry's well-known tune and I never intended to create another.  But, for some reason, a new tune came to mind -- one that I liked a lot.  Josh wanted something different for this collaboration but was not expecting this at all.  Yet he trusted me on this.  The new melody and musical environment - with piano and string quartet - brings a freshness to the text that I rather like. Familiar, yet not.  (All right, Lowry's tune does make an appearance towards the end...)
