Amarillo Civic Chorus Records "Be Thou My Vision"

St. Luke Presbyterian Church asked me to write something special for the choir to sing at the Amarillo Choir Festival in November 2007. Music Minister, Bob Hansen specifically requested that a solo for Steve Weber who has a beautiful bass/baritone voice be included and Bob also requested an instrumental obbligato part be included with the choir. I knew that one of Steve Weber's favorite hymns was "Be Thou My Vision" so the choice of hymn was very easy. The St. Luke Choir performed the arrangement of "Be Thou My Vision" which was arranged for Bass/Baritone Solo, Instrumental Obbligato (which I played on the English horn), and SATB choir. They did a great job and the festival audience really enjoyed hearing the premiere. The Amarillo Civic Chorus was planning a recording session to record a Christmas song for the Eveline Rivers Project Christmas CD 2008. They offered to record two of my pieces during the same session. This was a terrific opportunity for me as a composer to have such a professional group record for me. I will always be grateful to Steve Weber and the Amarillo Civic Chorus for their tremendous support and to Carlos Casso of Audio Refinery for recording!
