A very sad obituary to have read today: Christian songwriter Kurt Kaiser passed away yesterday. He was 83 years old. His song, “Pass It On,” is iconic in contemporary Christian music. An accompaniment track I did for the song years ago has been viewed over 800,000 times on my YouTube channel alone, and I have found it in numerous other places, pilfered and posted on various international video channels. He probably didn’t mind any more than I did because the important thing was the song was globally loved and sung. May his soul rest in peace and may his family find comfort in having lived with a gifted, modern evangelist whose reach and influence will only be truly known in the hereafter.
Please feel free to sing along to my accompaniment track in Kurt’s honor:
This past Sunday was the combined bands’ Spring Concert at the school where I substitute. As an interlude in the middle, the band director and I played a duet of piano and trumpet on Trumpet Sonata VII by Arcangelo Corelli. Here is the clip of our duet:
Here’s a picture of me accompanying the community choir this morning in the high school auditorium for the Veterans Day service. The choir did a very nice job for their very first performance. The service would have been outside on the court house steps if it weren’t for the remnants of Hurricane Ida going on outside. Just as well – I didn’t need to wear a coat, my music didn’t blow away, the people filling the auditorium had comfy seats, and we didn’t have to worry about bees, mosquitoes or the ever-popular hauling of a keyboard and sound equipment outside. And then back.
Filmed “One True God” this morning while it was relatively still cool and not so muggy out. It’s not often that I do a song jazzier than the radio play version. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, behind me in the vid, those are soybeans.
Tickled pink, er, uh, that is red, that I got this song uploaded today. It’s probably my signature song, so I don’t know why I hadn’t recorded it before this. Maybe because it’s definitely a high-energy “band song” and I wasn’t sure I could record it well enough on just my equipment. This great Sarah Hart and Steve Angrisano anthem has been well-received everywhere I’ve used it. And yes, you’ve noticed correctly: it’s such a wildly fun song that I’m even wearing….*gasp!*…. red lipstick!
Got two videos finished and uploaded today (which on dial-up this is a miracle in itself, proving that God is indeed good)!
This beautiful Phil Wickham song is one I use for meditation often. My husband and I were out on the beach after it rained and the sunset and misty atmosphere were just beautiful. This is his first foray into filming the video clips, and as I edited them down to make the final video, I thought he did a purdy good job!
I love Matt Maher’s music and was first introduced to it when I worked for a Catholic Church and we were using a lot of contemporary Christian music written by Catholic artists. This is my take on this great version of the Lord’s Prayer in song. I made the vid in memory of Fr. Bobby – remind me to relate the “Bobby story” sometime about him, the motion picture industry and the Lord’s Prayer. I know he’s appreciating the dedication. Rolling his eyes at me from his cloud with his cackling laugh, but appreciating it nonetheless.
