"I Need Thee Every Hour" (Winter 1998)
I first started dabbling in hymn arranging during my mission, as I often spent a few blessed minutes each week on the piano
during prep day. This was one that just came out like that and has stuck with me. Nothing really to it, just a nice low number.
If you can't tell, all of my earliest stuff was really influenced by Jim Brickman and Yanni, two keyboardists I listened to
a lot before my mission. Lots of syncopation. It's really interesting to look back and see how the "Waite style" has changed...
