More about Isaac Lowder:
My name is Isaac Lowder. I'm from a small farm town in Idaho. Yes I grew up on one of those farms. After graduating High School I went to BYU-Idaho, where I earned my Bachelors degree. I now teach music at a private school and do some arranging/composing in my free time.
I had written this arrangement for a choir that I directed around three to four years ago. The idea was that- in all honesty- Where Can I Turn for Peace was just to pretty. So I decided to be true to the words of the hymn and try to arrange something that would match the emotions needed. The moment of inspiration really occured when we were messing around with the meter section of the hymn book. We found that the meter for Where Can I Turn for Peace and Come Ye Disconsolate were the same. Not only that, the words seem to magically have a question and answer dialogue. That led me to the idea of pairing them. Hopefully you can appreciate the pairing as much as I do.
