More about Rick Graham:
I am a self-taught pianist that originally hails from Pennsylvania. I have a love of music that spans several decades. My Grandmother instilled in me the gift of listening to the sound of music no matter where it was. I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but sang as a young boy soprano in a boys choir for another church. Those years of learning music and techniques would forever stay with me as well as playing the recorder. I am married and am a grandfather and find great joy in my posterity. I moved to the Salt Lake area a couple years ago for employment and love it here (although I do miss my children and grandchildren terribly). I am humbled to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as a music missionary. I have been truly blessed and acknowledge all the gifts and blessings that I enjoy to Him, my Savior.
Song background:

An old Chirstmas hymn that I've always loved. I re-arranged it a bit to make it more interesting for choir members. I hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics: 1. Shepherd, shake off your drowsy sleep!
Rise and leave your beloved sheep!
Angels from heav'n around are singing,
Tidings of great joy are bringing.
Shepherd, the chorus come and swell!
Sing Noel! O sing Noel!

2. See how the flowr's all burst anew,
Thinking snow is summer dew;
See how the stars afresh are glowing
All their brightest beams bestowing,
Shepherd, the chorus come and swell!
Sing Noel! O sing Noel!

3. Shepherd, then up and quick away!
Seek the babe ere break of day.
He is the hope of ev'ry nation,
All in Him shall find salvation.
Shepherd, the chorus come and swell!
Sing Noel! O sing Noel!
