“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” —Ephesians 5:19
In our last newsletter we mentioned the fact that we had come across some good music, and decided to use the letter as the vehicle to share that good news. Here's a thank you to all who took us up on our offers. We know you were not disappointed. For those who missed it, we're offering these titles again.
Of course, we're also offering some for the Christmas season, a time when music permeates the air.
Please be sure to check out all the offers, and again, by all means, purchase and enjoy them.
NOW FROM THE ASAPH MUSIC COMPANY.

O GLORIOUS LOVE
by Kristi Abram
Born in 1979, Kristi Abram has had a lifelong passion for music. She eagerly began piano lessons when she was eight years old, and in her teens focussed her attention on harp and voice. As a classically trained musician, Kristi did many recitals, competitions, and special events, but her first love remains sacred music. For over ten years, she has shared her music ministry with churches, conferences, and women’s groups. Also a symphony harpist, Kristi received a diploma in harp performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music. She still maintains her first and almost favorite instrument, the piano, by playing for church and friends. Kristi received Jesus as her Savior when she was five years old, and in her early teens dedicated herself wholly to the Lord for His purposes. She considers it a wonderful privilege to glorify Him with the talents He has given her. Without the Lord Jesus, there would be no song to sing, and without the investment of others, there would be no talent! Kristi is very grateful to her parents for the years of lessons, encouragement, and prayer, and to the teachers and talented friends who have inspired and challenged her in her quest for excellence. A resident of Orting, Washington, Kristi teaches music privately and in a Christian school. An aunt seven times, she loves spending time with her wonderful family. Kristi also enjoys people, books, volleyball, scrapbooking, and cats.

THE MYSTERY OF CHRISTMAS
by Glenn & Jan Christianson
Available now in: choral book, spiral book, listening CD,
director’s kit, sound-trax CD, rehearsal-trax CD
SATB. Season--Christmas. Tony, a sixty-five-year-old businessman, is faced with a difficult choice: continue to pour everything into his business, or listen to the voices of those near him to accept the Lord as his Savior. When the pressure from the politically-motivated mayor almost pushes him over the edge, we see what Tony chooses. "The Mystery of Christmas" combines several new songs with a mixture of traditional carols. Included is a fun song called, "Bah! Humbug!" Also included are a separate men's number and a ladies' number. This musical is written with the average church choir in mind, and has a performance time of 50-55 minutes.
