    Holy, Holy, Holy and The Friendly Beasts and The Child With The Star on His Head (from Vol. 8 you can find it online somewhere) are my current favourites in that Songs For Christmas collection this week. I went to Chesbro today in Idaho Falls which is advertised as the largest sheet music collection in the West and I could not find solo piano music for Holy, Holy, Holy. I am pretty sure Rosie Thomas sings the duet part on that. They sing so well together.

  14. I love Sufjan too. And you should write more and be a little more open! I'm sure you have interesting things to say.

    Just some encouragement,

    Your fan,


  15. I love your music. Are you ever going to come to San Francisco???

  16. Did you ever hear Otis Redding's version of White Christmas? It's soooooo awesome. And, I wish I had a copy of that Christmas song by Pepper's Ghost.

  17. Gotta love Sufjan - particularly at Christmas!!

    In a related vein, I popped one of your songs on the Mix CD I put together for a few friends of mine every Christmas!

  18. love your mix :)
    I stumbled on your website from a fellow photographers blog - I actually sent an email from it asking to use one of your songs on my site as background music for my photo galleries ??? :0)

    my site is :
    (just a family/baby photographer)

    and if blogging is so 3 yrs ago - then I am stuck in the past also :)- I have 2 blogs myself & love to see new blogs & such!!!

    many blessings
