I like the idea of interspersing repertoire pieces with hymns. Was he playing his own arrangements of the hymns?

Yes, the hymn arrangements were his own.

Thanks, I guess I missed that in your OP. :oops:

Does he have any recordings?

Hey, no problem. :D I do the same thing sometimes. Those who live in glass houses must not throw stones. :lol:

He does have a good number of recordings... I know that fact very well because after the concert I guess I thought I was a millionare for a day and proceeded to buy all of his solo recordings plus one of his cello/piano CDs (recorded with the principal cellist of our own Dallas Symphony, which was why I just had to get it) and four of his hymn arrangement compilations. But I must say that they were well worth every penny. :wink: I think my favorite of the hymn CDs was his "In Sacred Concert" ; I also really liked his "Music of the Masters" one as well (all classical works). If you want the link, just let me know and I can give it to you.

That'd be great if you could send me the link. That way I can bookmark it so I can find it when I get around to ordering that kind of stuff again. :D

Thanks!
