Here I'm leading "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" with Sojourn Music

Merry Christmas! Bobby and I are taking the rest of 2011 away from blogging except for our New Year’s Resolution to you on Tuesday. We’ll return with some good posts in January:

  • How to do worship team rehearsals
  • Understanding copyright issues when writing new music for old hymns
  • How to prepare for worship team auditions
  • Time management for overworked creatives
  • How to revise hymn texts without destroying the hymn
  • Top Ten Books for Church Communications

along with some interviews we think you’ll love, and more. Till then, remember you can click the Streampad player strip on the bottom of this website at any time to hear all our Sojourn Music worship songs and modern hymns, and some of our other songs. You can also hear any of these songs individually on our Gilles Music page, and download My Song In The Night for free in the column on your right. And I’m sure Bobby will keep Tweeting so you can either follow @bobbygilles on Twitter or just watch his Twitter stream here in the column to your right.
