If You Could Hie to Kolob

I honestly can’t remember if I arranged this song at the end of high school or early college. Probably college. I do love this song and had to pay a little fee to get permission to post it but that was worth it!

With this arrangement I really tried to make the piano sound like the lyrics. After performing this once in church, a guy came up to me and said something like, “I opened the hymn book to read the lyrics when you started playing and the music matched the words.” I was touched to see that he noticed my effort in that area because the lyrics are very powerful. Probably what made this arrangement powerful too. Enjoy:

  1. I performed this piece in Church last week and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed playing it and how it touched the congregation. Our ward is normally very noisy. But when I started to play it there wasn’t a sound all through out the piece, which was a miracle in itself. Then a father came up to me with his little four year old boy and he said that the music touched his sons heart so that he was crying. There were so many that came and told me that it was one of their favorite songs. Thank you so much for sharing your music and talent and blessing the lives of our ward.
