I'd love to hear more versions as well, and I don't care if you're playing or not ... even instrumental versions - hint, hint Randy ... wink


Ok Tony - here you go - hot off the SX900 Press - my "Chill Version" of "Mary Did You Know". Hope you like it! Sure love the Baby G!

Morning, Fellow Arranger Zoners:

I took the time to listen to all of your song-posts of this now classic Christmas Hymn. I know, it is not a Hymn in the minds of many... but sung as such, it is heart rendering.

We have a choir at our little Methodist Church here in West Mayberry... and it includes a lady vocalist who has the ability to bring this song to life... and the audience to tears. I don't have audio or video to share but I wish I could.

Thank you all for posting. I hope we can all put aside our tiny differences for a few days and let the message of "Mary Did You Know" sink in. Collectively, you are such a unique group, mostly Arranger Performers... and I would be saddened to see this website sink into smugness like so many music sites have done... and now have disappeared.

Olive Branches all around.

Merry Christmas... ----Dave

HEAR HEAR Dave! Thanks for the comment and for listening to all our renditions! It's a beautiful melody and though it has a simple chord structure (less is more!), the melody, chords and lyrics can sure stir the emotions. So happy to hear the church group is using this song too! Happy holidays!

Hopefully, this 'Kumbaya' moment will last a long time ...

Randy, I REALLY enjoyed your interpretation THANK YOU...
But to be honest, - and I know it would have taken a lot of work - I was looking forward to a sax version with a backing track of your own creation ...
(Do I ask for too much? wink )

Great renditions, Tony and Randy. I recorded this several years ago and recorded it on my S-950's onboard recorder. Pretty sure that I posted it here as well, but cannot recall.

Merry Christmas Everyone,

Thanks Tony! I do think the Kumbaya will last! Just sayin'! Thanks for the kind words. I promise that soon I will get my "act" together and post a combined sax/keys tune or two! Been a while since I did that. Thanks again!
