am Minister of Music at St. Roch's Church
in St. Louis. I've been in
church choirs since I was 10 years old
and God has blessed me plenty. I look
forward to going to Church every Sunday
to play the piano and sing wih a great
group of ladies who also share their
talents with their church. Here are
just a few of the many that are my favorites.
I am singing harmony with myself on
several of these songs. I tried to teach
my cat, Ziggy, but she can't even pronounce

Angelicus: Cesar Franck 1882-1890
Cesar Franck was
the organist and choirmaster of Sainte
Clothilde in Paris, France. This piece
is from his Mass in A and was inserted
between the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei.
I've been signing this wonderful piece
all my life and it brings back such
wonderful memories. I am singing here
and arranged the piece on both my Roland
D-20's. I am also the echo voice you
Angelicus: Louis Lambillotte
Receive, O Christ,
into Thy choirs above him who sang the
praises of Jesus and Mary, and rescued
the music of Gregory from the darkness
of ages. These are the words on the
tombstone of Lambillotte written by
his contemporaries to reflect his many

Ambrose Church in St. Louis, the choir

It has a lot of syncopation in it and
was a fun song to do.
The Lord Is My
The Lord is my light and my salvation.
When your faith seems to slip a little,
and it will from time to time, I hope
this will get you back in the groove.
This song has an emotional tie to me.
I sang it at my Uncle Mike's Funeral.
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave
his life for us. He knew where he was

This we have heard, and seen with our
own eyes. Alleluia, Alleluia. I'm singing
some 3 part harmony here.
Oh God You Search
God knows us individually and has a
personal relationship with each and
every one of us no matter what we do.
We are his children, the sheep of his
flock. No matter where you are in life
or what you are doing, He will wait

Amazing Grace is just what we need.
I once was lost and now I'm found. We
are lost many times through our lives,
but God is patient. It's funny isn't
it? Turning over your life to God as
you understand Him is so easy and opens
