More about Chad Staten:
>>Please take a moment to rate/review any of my music if you use it.<< Your feedback is very important to me. I'd love to hear how you used it, and how it went for you! Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome! Chad (Staten rhymes with Dayton) started on the violin in third grade in Logan, UT. At the age of eight, he sang in a stake primary children's choir at the Logan Tabernacle. This first real encounter with the organ deeply impressed him, and cemented in his mind a desire to play the organ. After his family moved to Beeville, a small town 60 miles from anywhere in south Texas during fifth grade, he switched to the piano because of limited orchestra resources in town. Chad was called to be a ward organist and choir accompanist starting in high school, and has served in those positions almost continuously ever since. He was an Organ Performance and Pedagogy major at BYU, where he studied with Richard Elliott, and played harpsichord and other instruments in the Early Music Ensemble under the direction of Doug Bush. He currently serves as a Guest Organist on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Chad loves to compose, particularly for choir and organ. To support his music addiction, he works as an airline pilot and enjoys playing many different pipe organs at various destinations in the United States and Canada.

Song background:

When we do this hymn in Sacrament Meeting, we already enjoy having a second organist on the bench to do the fanfare on a separate manual to get as big a reed sound as we can. To get a more "English Cathedral" performance, conisder adding this trumpet solo line to the last verse of the hymn, having the main organist play the fanfare with the rest of the hymn on a separate (probably the great) manual. The newer Allen Protege models have an English Tuba on the swell manual, which is exactly the right kind of sound for this solo line. The mp3 here is exported from Sibelius to give you an idea what it sounds like.
