  1. Don’t love MIDI. Do love the groove. I prefer this greatly to the Gilly version – which to my ear is too similar-yet-different to the original tune. Hope you are doing well out in Houston. It’s freezing here in VA.

  2. this is great eric. thanks for the volley.

  3. Awesome. I love it. But it’s not very PCA.

    Bruce, great Epiphany post. I am totally with Tim on the Gilly version of “At the Name.” Eric, thanks for the useful chart for King’s Weston. Good stuff.

  5. Yes, this is a great harmonization. Thank you. Great to see some PCA folks re-developing epiphany hymns. This has always been a hard season for me to find accessible liturgically relevant hymns.

    Anyone know of a re-write of How Lovely Shines the Morning Star? Or should I take this one on?
