My Compositions

I’ve enjoyed composing a little music now and then over the years. Here are a few examples for your listening and performing enjoyment.

Shout – Psalm 150

 

The Path of the Righteous

 

Simple Song

  • A (Christian country-pop?) song I wrote kind of last minute because The Gingrichs were headed into the recording studio and we needed another song for our album. It turned out to be perhaps the least-simple song on the album. It sounded a bit too slick and shallow at first to me, so I added an instrumental bridge that explores new chords and rhythms. From the Step Right Up album (2002).
  • Score: Lost in the great electronic void

We Fix Our Eyes (2 Corinthians 4:18)

 

Sunday Night Rag

 

Before  All Things (Colossians 1:15-20)

  • This is a Scripture song that I composed in April, 2020 as our church enjoyed a sermon series from Colossians.
  • I didn’t write a score, but lyrics are included on the YouTube description. I recruited my daughters to help me make this video so we could teach it to our church during coronavirus online church.

Maybe sometime I’ll add a few more here–such as  “A Fine Summer Day in November,” a Hank Williams-inspired downer which hasn’t blessed anyone but has provoked a few groans and/or smiles.

Stay tuned for more (pun intended).
