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:

Let me start by saying, yes, I know this will never be sung in a sacrament meeting with those who share my faith.  That's not why I write music, specifically.  Still, I'm hopeful that someone, someday will find this and have a use for it. THis is a reduction of a full orchestrration of "The Iron Rod" (Did you know that song is almost 100 years old?).  I chose this to be part of my 12-movement work about the prophet Joseph Smith, called "The Restoration," another body of work that will probably never see the light of day.  But, again, that's now why I write music. Feedback is always welcome.
