    Do remote music collaboration for real with LOLA

    LOLA is mentioned in this very informative overview of virtual music collaboration – a BBC Radio presentation:

    Martha Lane Fox explores how musicians use the internet to create and distribute their work as network speeds increase.

    Twenty years ago, we connected to and disconnected from the internet with dial-up modems. With broadband technology, the internet is always there. And better connection speeds don't just mean we can download music and movies faster. They're creating new opportunities for musicians to collaborate and make music online.

    Unless a Grain of Wheat (Bernadette Farrell)

    Embedded Video: 

    Refrain:

    Unless a grain of wheat shall fall upon the ground and die,
    It remains but a single grain with no life.

    1. If we have died with him, then we shall live with him;
    if we hold firm, we shall reign with him.

    2. If any one serves me, then they must follow me;
    wherever I am, my servants will be.

    3. Make your home in me as I make mine in you;
    those who remain in me bear much fruit.

    4. If you remain in me and my word lives in you;
    then you will be my disciples.

    5. Those who love me are loved by my Father;
    we shall be with them and dwell in them.

    6. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you;
    peace which the world can-not give is my gift.

    Composer: Bernadette Farrell (1983)

    This song still needs some work. This rendition is in G. I have also recorded it in F which is better for my baritone vocal range. If you would like the sheet music for this, write to me. I'd love to have someone perform it. 

    Child of Eternal Love

    [verse 1]
    God, in glory, brings a star so bright.
    A Son is born in a bed of barley hay.
    Behold the Savior, our New Light,
    Child of Eternal Love, Shepherd of the way.

    God's love through music

    I knew from the very beginning when I prayed for the gift...asking God to be able to play for Him..that when it actually happened that He is the one who gives the music.

    It's a prayer. It's a gift. It's a way to...  Read Full Story >>>
