Comments for this piece:
From Carole Pursley: Thank you so much for this beautiful arrangement. I want to use it for our sacrament meeting presentation and hadn't been able to find it. You are generous and wonderful to provide it for others. What a splendid and unselfish way to share your gifts and talents. Best regards, Carole
From Cyril M.: Simple, yet beautiful. Moving from ladies voices, to men's voices, then together keeps it changing and far from boring.
More about Matt Astle:
Matt Astle currently lives in Sammamish, Washington (just outside Seattle) with his wife and four daughters. He's on his third or fourth stint as a ward choir director (who can keep count?), and enjoys arranging music for them. He's been a musician from a very early age, and has sung with the Mormon Choir of Washington DC; his law school a cappella group, the Scales of Justice; and currently with the Northwest Sound, a championship-level barbershop chorus. Many of his most powerful spiritual experiences have a musical element to them.
I've always loved this carol, but was always a bit puzzled by the fact that the words seem to have more to do with snow and sleeping than Jesus Christ or Christmas. Well, all it took was a little digging for various translations on the Internet. It turns out, "Still, Still, Still" is a very reverent Christ-centered song when you use the right lyrics. These lyrics are a mishmash of various versions I found.
