Creator of Beauty and Giver of Light (Easterling, NETTLETON)

There's no need to get your hiking boots... We have some lovely scores to carry you right over those purple mountains majesty and through any patriotic occasion as well! Whether your church goes full Red, White, and Blue with a brass ensemble or you just need a quick and easy hymn descant, we have you covered. Have a look at some of the featured music to get started. 

But wait! There's more! We’ll also be publishing lots of new music this summer to look ahead to the fall. We just published a great text by Beverly Easterling, “Creator of Beauty and Giver of Light” set by Mark Schweizer for Unison/Solo, Keyboard, and C Instrument. The tune Nettleton is quoted throughout. Would work as a solo or quick summer anthem. The text is appropriate for St. Francis Day, Christ the King, Thanksgiving, or Evensong. The SATB version will be coming later in the summer!

Have a great week!

What a wonderful piece.  I loved the video also as it scrolled and I could follow and attempt to sing along.  Hopefully you get a lot of parishes interested in this and your other selections. 

Oops! Mr Schletty can you

Oops! Mr Schletty can you kindly remove my triple post? I seem to have hit the button three times thinking my comment didn't upload. :-) 

I will remove the duplicates

I am having the same trouble. Posts and comments actually do get published but the browser fails to refresh. I am submitting a ticket to web hosting to have them troubleshoot this issue.

Thank you!

Thank you!

TCS updates and troubleshooting

I tried doing some Drupal 6 updates and troubleshooting. The website was offline for about 40 minutes with various errors. The Drupal 6 CMS (content management system) is getting way too old and crusty. I may have to migrate to WordPress to keep everything fresh and shiny for the future.

WordPress - something I've

WordPress - something I've heard of before discussing the site with you! :-) 

I fixed "page not refreshing" after publishing a post or comment

Fingers crossed and a prayer wafted cloudward. I think I fixed the problem of the "page not refreshing" after publishing a post or comment. Too geeky to explain. I will keep an eye on things. Thanks, everyone, for your patience. 

Any Drupal or WordPress developers here among the ranks who would like to help out with content management, troubleshooting, and a possible migration to Drupal 8 or pro version of WordPress?
