Glenn Rawson Stories

Christine Monson

In 2016 I was asked to provide music for several Glenn Rawson Stories narrations, produced by Carl Watkins and aired on the Sounds of Sunday radio program in the Intermountain West. Click on the Glenn Rawson Stories link below or above to listen.

Click on http://christinemonsonmusic.com/glenn_rawson_stories (or click on the Glenn Rawson Stories Page Button above) to go to the Glenn Rawson Stories page for both stories with piano soundtrack ("bed" is the correct term for radio-only), and for piano music by itself. In 2016 I was asked to provide music for several Glenn Rawson Stories narrations, produced by Carl Watkins and aired on the Sounds of Sunday radio program in the Intermountain West. These are the five I was able to do before time commitments took me somewhere else. Hopefully someday I'll be able to do more of these sorts of scoring/soundtrack endeavors! I am a movie soundtrack composer at heart!

Savior, Redeemer, Shepherd, King

Amy K. Alvord, vocalist, Christine K. Monson, composer/arranger/pianist

Recordings by Amy K. Alvord, vocalist, of three hymn arrangements by Christine Monson. These recordings were made in 2013 and we have yet to get back in and re-record them (somewhat rough draft recordings--forgive the blips in sound--wav files where mp3s go.

This will be a future CD. Forgive the blips on the recordings--we put wav files where mp3s only belong, and the thought to change them has yet to meet with the time to do so. Someday soon hopefully :)

These songs and hymns are composed and arranged to fully clothe the testimonies of Jesus Christ shared here in the unsurpassable symbols of music, to portray as closely as possible the messages and spirit of this music. These are preliminary, not final, tracks that I have done on my own (with the exception of those sung by Amy Alvord, which were done with Mark Stevenson and MAS Productions in Clearfield, Utah). Most here are done by me, who doesn't have the most recordable voice in the world (but I do learn more about using the voice I have to its fullest as I go). These songs are the heart of the Gospel, the heart of my testimony, and the heart of what Jesus Christ and His life are to me, a testimony I desire to share as powerful as I can through music, and through how I live and believe.

I hope that spirit and message comes through, even through the stages we have to go through to get this music where it can be truly powerful, as powerful as it can be. We would love to make these songs as powerful as possible someday, in an album fully orchestrated, with singers to match the messages and music. You can help by your donations through our GoFundMe link here on this website, and purchasing copies of our initial CD, "My Savior, My Lord, My King," which include piano solo adaptations of many of these songs.

In His Hands

Christine K. Monson, composer/arranger/pianist/vocalist, with various artists

Songs about how the Savior helps, strengthens, comforts, and heals us in our trials & afflictions. Included are songs about trust, fear, suicide, death, divorce, financial struggles, & depression, each with a message of how Christ succors us through all.

This will be a future CD. TO DOWNLOAD ANY INDIVIDUAL SONGS HERE, please click on the ORDER ALBUM button, which will take you to the BANDCAMP WEBSITE. There you can CLICK ON THE INDIVIDUAL SONG and DOWNLOAD for $1 each, payable through Paypal.

These songs are some of my most personal, coming from the trials and afflictions that I have gone through. I have been touched by fear, doubt, suicide, death, divorce, parenting struggles (& stepparenting), and depression, and these songs are my personal reflections and my personal testimony that the Lord takes care of us in our extremities, that He knows how to care for us and to help us grow through them--and that we can know, no matter how hard, lonely, and painful the way, that we are always in His hands--and that through Him, with a broken heart and true faith to do whatever is required, we can be healed of afflictions both physical, emotional, and spiritual. These are preliminary, not final, tracks that I have done on my own (with the exception of those sung by Amy Alvord, which were done with Mark Stevenson and MAS Productions in Clearfield, Utah). Most now are done by me, who doesn't have the most recordable voice in the world (but I do learn more about using the voice I have to its fullest as I go). These songs are the heart of the Gospel, the heart of my testimony, and the heart of what Jesus Christ and His life are.

I hope that spirit and message comes through, even through the stages we have to go through to get this music where it can be truly powerful, as powerful as it can be. We would love to make these songs as powerful as possible someday, in an album fully orchestrated, with singers to match the messages and music.
