Last fall, I recorded five big pieces of music that I am releasing slowly as video singles. MasterBuilder came out last Thanksgiving. Today, I am releasing a second one entitled “Soul Rest,” adapted from “Be Still, My Soul.”
This is another collaboration with Ben Botkin and is designed to be a very dramatic piece of music. It is quite possibly my favorite of anything that I have ever done.
I will talk at length about what I did with this in the coming week or so, but for now I want to mention that the name (Soul Rest) is based on the idea that Christians have to let go of a lot of things and just rest in God’s timing through the seasons of life and all the ups and downs. You will see hints of this theme all through the video both in the music and also in the visuals.
I need your help promoting this piece and if you help me, I want to give you something. Simply share it on any of your social media platforms and let me know that you did (my email is firstname.lastname@example.org). When you do, I will send you the MP3 of the track for free or if you wish, you can ask for the sheet music/track instead. The sheet music is not ready yet but will be available soon.
And now, here is the video. If you don’t see it below, click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekVdOzZs2Uc
