    @Brent T., have you not heard his rendition of I Am a Child of God? Sounds pretty Clapton-esque to me.

    I think the whole album is fantastic and strikes a great balance between capturing the spiritual feeling and meaning of the hymns while adding a modern take on the arrangements. Loved it! Mr. Howington is legit.

    While I was in the Mission Training Center (formerly the Language Training Mission) I became acquainted with an Elder who did some amazing hymnal arrangements on the piano. I wonder whatever became of him. There are so many talented musicians and I would like to see and hear more of their work.

    Nice enough. But that's not hard to come by (see Ryan Tilby). What I'm looking for, especially in our meetings, is some wailing, rocking versions of our hymns. Not musically inclined myself -- but something Clapton-esque. Not allowed currently according to the Handbook... but one can only hope that the Church will get modern leaving behind the stodgy arrangements of of our great-great ancestors.
