"Three Dwellings" piece

While caring for Melissa and Matthew takes up a good deal of my time, I do get out of the house for Choir practice and to sing in the Sunday service at our church.  I challenged myself to write some short pieces of music to accompany the bible readings a few times a year. This was my second piece, which I wrote for last year's "Transfiguration Sunday" service. I really can't play the piano very well, but some good music notation software called Finale makes things a great deal easier for people like me with limited abilities, and our Choir Director, Carla, has been very helpful.  I've been singing for years, but my Music Theory is very limited, so "Caveat Auditor" ("let the listener beware!")

I was able to get a recording of us singing it this past Sunday, and I made it into a video so I could share with people. Sorry if the on-screen lyrics are cheesy looking, but the recording was sort of muddy.



I hope you like it, and wish me luck--I'm working on my third composition for Easter season this year.
