Hi Joel, your hymn arrangements are beautiful. Where can I buy sheet music for 'And Can It Be'?
Such a blessing! I have been listening to both versions of 'For the Beauty of the Earth' every morning for the past year to start of my day with the Lord. I hope you can release another version ;)
I really love your beautiful piano arrangements. I know that several people have already commented about getting the sheet music for "A Mighty Fortress" but I just wanted to ask as well if it is available. Your video of the song on YouTube is what brought me to your web site. Thanks.
Do you have the sheet music for Face to Face with Christ? Love your arrangement.
Love your arrangements. Do you have the sheet music for Face to Face?
Joel, Listened to your "shenandoah" and the text below, found the the Salvation Army Song Book, speaks! 'Mid all the traffic of the ways, Turmoils without, within, Make in my heart a quiet place, And come and dwell therein: Come and dwell therein. 2. A little shrine of quietness, All sacred to thyself, Where thou shalt all my soul possess, And I may find myself: And I... 3. A little place of mystic grace, Of self and sin swept bare, Where I may look into thy face, And talk with thee in prayer. And talk.... 4. Come, occupy my silent place, And make thy dwelling there! More grace is wrought in quietness Than any is aware. Than any.... John Oxenham (1852-1941) Here is a youtube link to listen to it by an Army Professional chorus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_nOcLKX-2c If you would arrange an "easy piano" version to accompany the four verses, I would buy it! Right now, I sing it over an "Oh Shenandoah" by Ruth Schram that was published for middle school chorus--not the best use of her arrangement for the traditional words.
Hi, Joel! I rarely buy CDs in this economy (and my finances) but had to treat myself to the Hymn Journeys and am loving it! God's continued grace on your music and ministry. Blessings, Christa
stumbled upon your site when i was looking for improvisation blogs, a very pleasant surprise! Its nice to hear hymns still being played! I was just wondering if the sheet music for "be still my soul" is available? Thanks!!
Is any of your sheet music available? Particularly "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" and "Be Still My Soul" Please, please email me. Thank you!
Is sheet music available for your arrangement of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"? Please email me and let me know. I'd love to play it.
My son and I found your site while looking for arrangements of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" that DIDN'T pound on the piano. We love the arrangement you have posted on your blog. Do you have a score for it available? We've enjoyed listening to the other hymns on your site. Simply beautiful! Thank you!
I found a piano recording of Amazing Grace on internet. I have used it as bacground/intro on some few youtube videos. The problem is that I did not know the pianist, so I could not ask permission. Now I have found out it could be your production. You also have many beautiful piano recordings on the web.Do you have some rules for using your works?
I've been searching for a piano solo of "A mighty Fortress is our god". Yours is beautiful. Please post the score so that I can play in our church for everyone to enjoy. Thanks so much for your site!
Bet you can't guess who this blast from your past is! Love your music...you choose all the same hymns that are my favorites. Thanks for inspiring me years ago in music...I am now a music teacher with a piano studio of almost 40 students (margybarber.com). God bless you and your family!
Joel, I play Fresh Hymns prior to a service we hold in a Hospice Center. Your gift is like a warm blanket of God's comfort on all those present. Have you traditional hymn arrangements for vocals? If so, I would like to purchase selections and/or albums if available. Good Bless, Tony/Minister of Music
Hi, Joel, I don't have receiving your mails. Be known I appreciate so much your music. How can I purchase your cds? I live in Brasil and I did not found them here. Please, send instructions. In Christ, Kaytha
I am looking for the sheet music to the song Be Thou My Vision...will you please contact me with that information.
hello Joel, I would like to ask a favor to have link exchange my website is music related "music for license". Please contact me back if you are interested. Thank you.
Joel/You are doing a very blessed thing.making and sharing music that really calms and brings peace. So much of the so-called praise music out there today is mostly noise,that drowns out the Word they're supposedly communicating [don't get me wrong The best of it is often wonderfully fresh] but you are helping to fill a very sad gap in "christian' music these days. I am a singer and a harper, and play and write music that is also quiet [mostly]. May God totally bless you and your site. Paulette
I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed your music. I never tire of listening to your beautiful hymn arrangements. I have used your renditions of "God be With You Till We Meet Again" and "Blest Be the Tie That Binds" as background music for my husband's and my blogs created for our family--nine children and 28 grandchildren.
Hey Joel, When will Fresh Hymns be available again? I want it! Blessings

Looked for sheet music you sell but couldn't find in on your web site. Please direct me if you will. Love your arranagements.
I pastor a tiny rural church with no musician and I don't play keyboards. You have provided me with music for preludes and prayer times and my congregation and I have certainly been blessed by it.
Hello Sir, I've subsribed to your pod cast from iTunes and have really enjoyed your music. I'm a band director in Florida and my students have enjoyed listening as well. Hope you enjoy your upcoming Summer. Sincerely, Kerry Kline

Greetings from the Northwoods of Minnesota! Your music is exquisite!! Thank you! God's richest blessings to you for this unique ministry. In His name, Piney
Joel, your music touches my heart in a very tender way. As the leader of the prayer ministry of my college baptist student ministry, I have played your music as we pray for people all over the world and here in Texas. Thank you for making your music available free of charge - it is a tremendous blessing. God bless you and your family!
Joel, thanks for sharing your music.
Thank you for generously sharing your talents w/o charging a fee. This is a ministry and you have blessed many because of your selflessness. May God's Blessings continue to be with you...
Dear Joel, I have listened to most of your music online and find it to be a rich blessing. Our church is starting a radio ministry called Sola Scriptura on Jan. 1st in the Portland OR area. We hope to use A Mighty Fortress is Our God as the opening and closing theme music. I thought maybe you would let us use your version or even cut one for us. It is a big request from a stranger, feel free to say no way. Please email or give me a call at 503-936-9671. Thanks, Chuck O'Neal, Pastor of Beaverton Grace Bible Church
Found your stuff on iTunes by accident; absolutely amazing! Truly a blessing. Matt from Ireland

Just discovered your podcast via itunes. It's great! Thank you!
Joel Stumbled on your music while wading thru Itunes podcasts. As a worship pastor and pianist I found your music a breathe of fresh air to my soul. It was deep calling unto deep. May God continue to bless you richly.
I found your music on Itunes and listened to it this morning during my devotions. I love it. I'm headed right now to purchase the CD. Thanks for sharing your talent...you truly are gifted. Blessings to you and your family!
Excellent job, Joel!
Thanks for sharing your music with your many fans.
