More about Craig M Moore:
Music is an avocation: piano at 8, F Horn at 12, trumpet at 16, school & church choirs and small group singing from 12. BA - Music & BBA - Finance @ Boise State 1982. My daily career is as a corporate lawyer in Spokane, WA. I have served in church music callings nearly all of my adult life. Due to MS, since about 2017, I have been writing and arranging hymns and children's music more, and accompanying or performing less. I seem to put a few works out each year, which is more than I expected when I started. Having participated in many different wards and their choirs, one of my primary objectives is to make the music interesting, but not intimidating for a typical ward or accompanist.
Song background:

When Cecil Frances Alexander wrote the lyrics to There Is a Green Hill Far Away, it was the mid-1800s and she was the wife of an Anglican minister. I like her hymn, yet felt the desire to write a new musical setting, and to make some minor updates to the lyrics from both a usage and doctrinal standpoint. Only a few words are changed in each verse, so the message remains substantially similar to the original.

The music is all new. When my wife learned I was working on this arrangement, she asked me if I was trying to ruin one of her favorite hymns! (Of course not.) I asked her to listen to it, and she liked it! I hope you do, too. (The Church Permissions Department has also provided a non-objection letter.)
