Viva La Library Remix

I feel quite honored – my parody of “Viva La Vida,” “Viva La Library (The Information Literacy Song),” has been covered by the librarians at Ivy Tech Community College. I think they did a great job, and needless to say the video itself is much more impressive than my still slides with the words. They made a [Read More...]

Paul the Gentiles’ Apostle

This bit of musical satire emerged from the course on Paul and the Early Church that I taught this semester. Some may just get a kick out of it, but others may be truly happy to have a Biblical alternative to “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Either way, I hope you enjoy it! [Read more...]

We’ve sung it in church to the tune of “Peaceful Easy Feeling” by the Eagles, with an added [Read More...]

Kuhn Rhapsodies

I don’t think I had heard of composer Joseph F. Kuhn before coming across this YouTube video. If you like late Romantic music, and especially piano concertos of that era, you will like this. The video includes three works: Manhattan Rhapsody, Midnight Rhapsody, and Rhapsody d’Amour, all from 1961. There are moments which are highly reminiscent of works like [Read More...]
