Arranged for the Greeley, Colorado Stake Conference in January 2017, this approachable 2-part version of the beloved hymn is perfect for youth or adult choirs with limited rehearsal time.
The piano quotes the classic A. C. Smyth tune Dare to Do Right. This arrangement can work well for small or large groups. While the piece is notated for women on part 1 and men on part 2, it would work equally well with a 2-part men’s choir or a 2-part women’s choir. Part 2 has the melody throughout the piece, so adapting for different groups should be easy.
This setting of A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief was written in 2011 for use in a conference. I wrote it for performance by two of my most influential musical mentors: my father sang, and my grandfather accompanied him on the piano.
This newly-arranged version is appropriate for Primary children and other singers with limited range, or who need more support from the piano. Promises was written for the baptism of our niece Zoey. It describes our relationship with the Savior by discussing what we promise him, and what he promises us in return.
