I’ve admired my friend Dave Mincy’s musical gifts ever since we were in the BJU Symphonic Band together when I was a freshman in college. (Precious memories. He was a musician and trombonist. I was a trombonist. Kind of.) Fast forward almost 20 years, and both of us are trying to contribute to the Christ-honoring, conservative Christian music repertoire in different ways. (Aside: Dave’s helping another friend of mine, Mike Knight, at Community Baptist Church, a vibrant church plant in Garner, NC.)
Dave’s site, mincymedia, provides a wide variety of music resources, almost all of which are downloadable. We’ve used one of his choral arrangements (“Wesley’s Carol”) at TCBC, and his mp3 recordings of “In Christ Alone” and “Speak, O Lord” (available here) are among my family’s favorite sacred instrumental tracts. Buy them; they’re well worth the $1.98 you’ll spend, and you’ll thank me later. Both also have sheet music available here.
For the next week or so, Dave is providing an mp3 and sheet music of his solo piano arrangement of “Like a River Glorious” for free. (Details at Dave’s blog.) It’s beautifully and simply done. And (I’ll mention a third time) it’s free, though it would be worth paying for.
Get to know mincymedia. And thanks for your ministry, Dave!
