Comments for this piece:
From Becky: I chose this song for my stake choir. The piano accompaniment is beautiful and challenging, but the singing parts are fairly easy for the choir. As a conductor I found the time signature changes a little confusing and challenging. Having some sort of audio file would be helpful. My choir really liked it.
5.0 stars.

From Tom : Great Piece Brian. You do the Bear River Valley proud.
5.0 stars.

Song background:

"Oh, What Songs of the Heart" is an older hymn - not frequently heard in our church meetings. I have a fondness for family history and the themes of eternal families and the ideas of heavenly associations.
