SONG OF SONGS, a collection of four of my latest compositions for solo piano is now out! There are 5 tracks: ‘La Joie De Vivre’ (which won the Open Composition class at the Inverness Music Festival in 2012), ‘Beethoven Come Back’ (a catchy tuneful piece in a Classical style), ‘Danse Jubilante’ (a jubilant dance full of energy with a cantabile middle section), and ‘Processional For A Bride’ (a calming, regal piece of music to accompany a bride walking down the aisle). This is a short album (11 minutes, 17 seconds). The four individual pieces each have fresh delight and beauty in melody, harmony and rhythm. Tracks 1 to 4 are recorded on piano and track 5 is the ‘Processional’ recorded on the organ in Inverness Cathedral 4th January this year (2015). Please have a listen to the samples that I have uploaded from each of the tracks at my shop. You can purchase this album either as a CD or MP3 Download and the corresponding sheet music in My Shop. Cost: CD £6 (free post to UK) and Individual tracks to download @ £1 If you like my music, please help by ‘sharing’ my Rivers Of Music website address: www.riversofmusic.co.uk I always appreciate feedback, so if you have any comments, please leave them here. Here are a few responses to the Album:
- How beautiful!
- I just want to listen to ‘Processional For A Bride’ played on the organ (Track 5) over and over again
- Love it… want more
- Fabulous! Just wanted the album to play on and on.
- Loved it! More compositions like these, please.
At the shop you can purchase CDs, PP3, and Sheet Music at my shop.
I have added the sheet music (PDF scores) for the four piano compositions on my new album ‘Song of Songs’, one solo cello composition and 3 arrangements of well-loved Scottish Fiddle Melodies set for violin & cello. You can view, save and print short sample scores to try out.
My CD ‘Kiss of Grace’, launched in May 2014, has had very positive and encouraging feedback and has had several radio broadcasts so far. The CD is available directly from me through my new website http://riversofmusic.co.uk and via download through iTunes, AmazonMP3, Spotify and many other digital download stores. If you are local to Inverness, the CD is available at the CLC bookshop in Castle Street. Simon Pollit is also selling my CDs through the Elijah House Austria’s book shop.
It has been aired on Hospital Radio in the Glasgow area and I am hoping that ‘Kiss of Grace’ will continue to be played on various radio stations around the world. It is currently distributed to many digital stores and radio stations in the USA via Tunecore.
My vision – I want many people to enjoy the rest and peace that flows through my music and perhaps to bring revelation of God’s healing love. I have ministered in this way many times, in small but not insignificant settings. It may be that God is leading me out if my comfort zone! I would like to begin to visit one or two places further afield with my music ministry.
I plan to record another album of piano improvisation, Kiss of Grace Vol 2, sometime soon. My ‘Theme and Variation’s on Paganini’s Caprice No.24 for Violin and Cello is published as sheet music by Spartan Press (also available as a digital PDF download). There’s a link to Spartan Press in the ‘Sheet Music’ section of this website.
