Music by miscellany and friends

Music is an important part of our lives, and has been for Denise and me since childhood.  Here are some of the things we’ve done over the years.  Most have been recorded while singing at church, and will reflect that in the quality of the recordings.  As you listen to these hymns and gospel songs, take a moment and reflect on your relationship with the Creator of the world and our Redeemer.  It’s time well spent.
