Comments for this piece:
From Linda Hartman: This is so fun. Just enough new stuff in the chord progressions, etc. to make it fresh and interesting without taking anything away from the traditional facets of the song. You are so gifted!! I need to schedule this song for singing soon in our ward, just so we can throw this into the mix on the final chorus. That'll wake everyone up I bet!! :D
5.0 stars.

More about Chad Staten:
<PLEASE NOTE: I am migrating over to my own website. Please visit chadstatenmusic.com for access to more materials. Thanks!> Chad (Staten rhymes with Dayton) started on the violin in third grade in Logan, UT. At the age of eight, he sang in a stake primary children's choir at the Logan Tabernacle. This first real encounter with the organ deeply impressed him, and cemented in his mind a desire to play the organ. After his family moved to Beeville, a small town 60 miles from anywhere in south Texas during fifth grade, he switched to the piano because of limited orchestra resources in town. Chad was called to be a ward organist and choir accompanist starting in high school, and has served in those positions almost continuously ever since. He was an Organ Performance and Pedagogy major at BYU, where he studied with Richard Elliott, and played harpsichord and other instruments in the Early Music Ensemble under the direction of Doug Bush. He currently serves as a Guest Organist on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Chad loves to compose, particularly for choir and organ. To support his music addiction, he works as an airline pilot and enjoys playing many different pipe organs at various destinations in the United States and Canada.

Song background:

A few days ago I was asked if I had a free accompaniment for Called to Serve. I didn't, but wrote this one down that afternoon. It is intended as an organ accompaniment, and gives some dignity to a hymn tune that is otherwise not my favorite. In its hymnal embodiment, I think it's fine for firesides, conferences, priesthood meetings, etc., but the original has too much of a "campfire" feeling to me for use in Sacrament Meeting. In that setting, you might consider using this arrangement for both verses. (Imperfect recording is from a slightly earlier version for now...)
