More about Loren Erickson:
My first introduction to music was playing the trumpet in an elementary school band. How many of those do you see anymore? In Junior High I took up singing and performed in various choirs and musicals through high school and college. When I was called as ward music chairman and took on the additional responsibilities of ward choir director, I wanted to see of I could arrange music for the choir. Many of those early attempts were...well...awful. But I had a very forgiving Bishop and patient accompanists and choir and I continued to learn. I am now stake music chairman and have inflicted slightly less atrocious arrangements on otherwise unsuspecting congregations. I also currently sing with Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, a multi-denominational choral movement spanning five western states in the USA. My experience in MCO has had a profound influence on how I look at music, what it means, and why it is important to understand meaning behind notes and lyrics when performing it. I hope that what I leave here is not as awful as I have suggested that it might be with this introduction, but either way, know that there is a little piece of my soul in everything you will find from me here. Please provide feedback on my work. That is the only way I will learn.
Song background:

I became a grandfather for the first time last month.  I was warned by my parents that it would feel different; that I would feel an overwhelming urge to protect this "little one" from any possible harm.  

They were right.

I've always wondered what these little ones would tell us about if they were born with the ability to speak.  Perhas there's a reason they're not.  Regardless, I felt inspired to write a song about these precious ones "so soon from heaven". 

This was the result.  I wanted it to be about their whole journey, not just these first tender formative years. So each verse is sung by a different voice.  See if you can figure out who they are.  I'll give you a hint: the first one is their mother. 

This is for you Luka, so soon from heaven.
