As a missionary for the LDS Church, I was asked to sing “I Come to the Garden Alone” as a solo at the funeral of a member of the Church who loved the song. As do I.
As a long time musician, having been sining all my life, including many many ward choirs, I can tell you that us heretic Mormons sing all kinds of music. Our hymnal contains some beautiful arraignments, but it’s not the end all, especially when it comes to performance arraignments.
Haha. Make that SINGING all my life.
Sining too, but that’s another thing... ;-)
Well, if the Scientologists wanted to pretend that they, too, were Christian, I suppose they'd have songs in their hymnal like "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" [get it...clear...Scientologists' "spiritual" goal is to become "clear"...well, I guess ya gotta understand Scientology to get it :) ]
I’ve been sinning most of my life, too ;-).
I have a CD of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing Patriotic Favorites. Fine arrangements, and it’s great to hear a choir with enough men in it!
