NathanHoweMusic.com has a new look, and now all of the pages on the site should reflect the change. While tidying up, I’ve also added a few things that have been lying around. Live recordings of many songs from Come and Behold Himare now posted, including this video from a great young choir:
Standalone versions of several of these cantata pieces are posted.

FreeLDSsheetMusic.com holds an annual composition competition. Two recent hymn arrangements from NathanHoweMusic.com are entered this year. If you have a moment, I would appreciate your rating my pieces, along with any others you’d like to rate. Just visit this page to view the contest entries and vote for your favorites. Thanks!
As I’ve been working through the transition to a new visual format, I’ve also tied up a few loose ends, and the result has been a couple of new files available on NathanHoweMusic.com.
First, a few reasons for the changes. Most of the content has remained the same, but the look of the website has been changed for better speed, greater clarity in navigation, and optimized viewing on mobile devices. I’m also happy to part with some of the uglier elements of the previous design.
You might notice that almost every piece now has a thumbnail image and a sound player, which will help visitors to find and evaluate music more easily.
Second, to help with Easter preparations, I have released two new arrangements of Resurrection Hymn: a hymnal-style version and an SATB choral version. Since there are many versions of this piece, and since it’s very popular for Easter, here is the complete listing:
Finally, for you school choral directors out there, don’t forget to check out A Social Madrigal, a great secular SAB piece just published by Shawnee Press. It’s just right for a middle school or lower-level high school choir.
As always, let me know how I can help you with more great music for the future.
The popular Nathan Howe arrangement of the United States national anthem, The Star-spangled Banner, is now easier to learn for your choir members. Rehearsal recordings for each part have been created. The stereo recordings feature the part to be learned on the left side and the other three parts on the right side. Find the new rehearsal recordings here.
Once again this year, FreeLDSsheetMusic.orgis holding a sheet music competition, and two pieces from NathanHoweMusic.com are in the running – look for I am His Son and How Great the Wisdom and the Love. Go and listen to all of the the selections, then give ratings to help your favorites. I’d appreciate your comments and ratings. Thanks!
UPDATE: The voting is over, and although these pieces did not win prizes, they got many votes. I appreciate your help!
