More about Craig M Moore:
Music is an avocation: piano at 8, F Horn at 12, Trumpet at 16, school and church choirs and small group singing from 12. BA in Music and BBA in Finance from Boise State 1982 - make my living as bank lawyer. Held numerous church music callings, occasionally writing simple arrangements, such as adding a flute or cello part to a choir number. In 2014, began to have neurological issues affecting my hands and feet, making accompanying on piano or organ more difficult - diagnosed with MS in 2015. As my motor skills decline, I have felt to channel more of my music interests into writing religious music, starting with hymns and children's music. No promises how often I will write something, but with the new hymnal and children's songbook being announced, I plan to make multiple submissions.
Song background:

 

After the Church announced it was soliciting new music for a new Children's Songbook, I thought on my experience as both a Primary pianist and chorister, and initially wrote alternate settings for the 1st, 2nd and 8th Articles of Faith because they are in minor keys and I always felt songs of faith should have brighter feel to them. I then learned the Articles of Faith could be treated as one submission and that it may be desirable to have new music for all of the Articles of Faith. So I decided to give it a shot and submitted The Articles of Faith about a month ago. Since then, I made a few changes to the 4th and 5th Articles to make the accompaniment a little easier (with specific suggestions from Anna Molgard for the 5th, which I incorporated). I also entirely re-wrote the 11th. The upload includes the revisions.
It was a fun and inspiring process! I didn't have to worry about doctrine. Rather I was focused on coming up with melodies and rhythms that were pleasant and reasonably matched the natural flow of the Articles of Faith. I also sought to make the music so that they were in the range of children's voices, and that an early intermediate pianist could play them - perhaps some Primary children.
