Master, the Tempest is Raging
This is a favorite hymn of both my husband and my mother-in-law, Cleo. Whenever I’m playing the piano and Cleo is around, I can count on getting a request for this hymn. She’s always been perfectly happy to just hear me play it out of the hymn book, but I love that I can now play her my own arrangement.
This arrangement won 3rd place in the inaugural Sacred Sheet Music Competition sponsored by freeldssheetmusic.org in March. It also received the Award of Distinction in the 2013 Church Music Submission and was selected as the top entry in its category. It will be performed on Temple Square at the Church Music Festival on February 14, 2014. Look for it in my new book of sacred piano solo arrangements, “Eventide.”
Review from the 2013 Sacred Sheet Music Competition:
“Clearly this was put together by someone with a great love for the piano and a profound understanding and appreciation of the instrument. Inescapably this is written in someone’s very individual ‘style’ and as such it will appeal to some and not to others. This style differs from a lot of popular ‘LDS’ music, which can be a good thing. It’s flourishy without being show-offy. It doesn’t seem easy to play, but that’s not a requirement for good music. My old music director used to intone, ‘Do you think the audience cares how hard it is?’ Thank you for sharing your work and please, please keep making music!”
