“I like all of your arrangements! I played your organ solo version from WardOrganist.com of 'Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy' at my nephew's mission farewell. It's his favorite hymn."
Adjunct Associate Professor of Organ and Organ Area Head at University of Utah
“The spirit was so strong during the closing hymn ['Praise to the Lord, the Almighty']; I could hardly sing. But I kept trying, because I wanted to be part of it with all my heart. Thank you for what you brought there."
Lindon First Ward
“I want to thank you for your organ arrangement on 'Do What Is Right.' It was wonderful and added to the spirit of the meeting. I love that it was not so 'out there' for the congregation; they could still hear the melody, and they sang beautifully!"

“Every time I visit this site it's like Christmas! I especially love 'I Know That My Redeemer Lives.' I feel so blessed to be a beneficiary of your hard work. Thank you!"

“I love your music, Mike. It has added so much joy to my life. Your arrangements have enhanced our meetings immeasurably throughout the years and will continue to do so! I've even used some of them in the temple, and they are super!"

Ward, stake & temple organist
“After playing your hymnbellishment for 'Praise to the Man,' the grandmother of the returned missionary speaker excitedly rushed up to the organ. A longtime member of the Tabernacle Choir and composer, she said, 'As soon as you started that introduction, I knew it was going to be GREAT!' She has Scottish ancestry, so the arrangement was especially meaningful to her. I have also received similar compliments from a visiting stake presidency member and other members of the ward when I used your 'I Am a Child of God' and 'How Great Thou Art.'"
