More about Timothy Rohwer:
Timothy Rohwer graduated from BYU-Idaho with a Bachelor's degree in Musical Arts. He teaches violin and viola lessons in Idaho Falls and has been composing since the age of 13. He writes hymn arrangements for ward choir and various instrumental groups and writes both solo, chamber, and symphonic works. He is currently preparing for graduate school.
In the midst of trying to find an arrangement for my ward choir for Christmas, I had a home teacher who mentioned the story behind "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," how the man's son had been killed in war. My brother was at the time serving in the United States Marine Corps and was deployed in Iraq. This felt like the perfect thing to sing for our Chrismtas program this year, and so I started searching for some arrangement in our music library. After searching, though, I found that there was no such arrangement, and so I wrote one myself.
This is an updated version, after I had spent some more time in classes for music theory and some extra time writing different compositions and studying varying composers, and so it is much more refined and has more substance then the older one. It is - as yet - still not fully finished, but I felt it finished enough to sing it again this year.
