I have posted two new versions of my musical compositions on my music website, jsgraves.musicaneo.com. One is a new version of my Love Beyond All Telling for children’s choir. The words are from a poem by Little Rock poet Carol Sieman:
Oh Love beyond all telling, You come to this poor dwelling and make yourself at home, You feed my soul with bread and wine, You fill my heart with angel joy, You lead my thoughts to heavenly places, revealing saintly prayers and faces, You live in my heart, You live in my heart.
The other work is my Song of Mary (Magnificat), the abridged version for adult choir, a new more compact version of this large work to be used as a stand alone anthem. The work includes settings of the traditional Hail Mary, as well as portions of the Magnificat.
Both of these works may be viewed on my music website, jsgraves.musicaneo.com. Please take a look.
Hello! My name is John Graves. I have created this new website, astarfell.com, to focus on discussions of music, art and creative writing in the state of Arkansas and South Carolina. (I have contributed regularly to The Bluffton Breeze in Bluffton, SC. Just go to https://issuu.com/blufftonbreeze and search for John Samuel Graves, III) Initially I will be discussing my own works, and later, those of my wife, R. S. Perry. We live in Little Rock, Arkansas. We are both writers and composers and my wife is also a visual artist. I will begin by presenting and discussing my own musical compositions collected in my book, A Star Fell and Other Songs. See the Songs in my songbook tab above for a discussion of the first song in that book, A Star Fell.
Click here for A Star Fell Contents 2014. This book is now available on this site in two versions: an Arkansas edition and a Carolina edition. Please visit the Songs in my Songbook tab for more information. Also, most of my compositions can be purchased individually and downloaded in high quality pdf format at my other site, jsgraves.musicaneo.com.
All visitors with questions or comments are encouraged to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit my About tab above for my biographical material.
