I have some chords for this children's chorus/song (Starts in C) we are using at camp this week but I dont know where it came from or where to obtain the sheet music. I could really do with the piano accompaniment. I'm based in the UK.

Thanks for any feedback

Ken

Do you need sheet music for every child you are trying to brainwash or just for the piano player?

Is this the one?

Or there's this

The second one is an American website but you may be able to find a UK equivalent.

Hello, Ken. I see you are looking for one copy of the piano accompaniment for the song, "Jesus Said I Am the Light of the World".

I'm looking around online. I see a piece by that name arranged by Simon Mold, available from a US site: http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/Jesus-Said-I-Am-the-Light-of-the-World/4601454 .

I understand you need it asap; it would help if we knew the exact arrangement you have. Any other details you could offer? Perhaps it exists as an online download.

Maeve

Catch 'em young eh?

At least you are honest enough to call it a children's song I suppose.

Enjoy your camp...

When a first time visitor to the Mudcat asks for information about a song I would like to think we are tolerant enough not to be critical of their song choice because it doesn't fit our personal agenda.

DataKnight - welcome. I hope you get all the info you need. You'll find the majority of us to be helpful.

In one way, I agree with you Wesley S.

In another, ignoring brainwashing on the basis that it has been taking place so long that is it almost seen as socially acceptable doesn't diminish the opportunity to ask people to think about what the hell they are doing?

At a slight tangent, In 'Godspell' they have the lines:

"I am the light of the world,
But if that light's under a bushel,
It's lost something kinda crucial"

Lovely rhyme :)

Thank you for all your replies.

Unfortunately I think it's going to be hard to find what I'm after. The two sites I was given by Jacqui (Thank You) don't match with what I'm after. The second one was close but I think it's a different setting to what I'm looking for - unfortunately I can't see a copy of the music without buying it. I'll try the UK version if there is one but my guess is that there won't be sample sheet to look at. Thanks too to Maeve for the web link.

I also now realise that the site is aimed more at folk music people rather than being more general. But at least you've tried to help out.

Thanks again.

Ken

Ken- I wonder if you might find it by limiting your search to the UK- particularly sites such as:
http://www.eden.co.uk/

If you do find what you seek, you might let us know so those of us who enjoy tracking down songs can stop looking!

PS Mudcat has a strong focus on folk and blues music, yet includes all kinds of people with all kinds of music interests. Thanks for stopping in.

Ken, the link says "SATB" (= mixed choir) and perhaps organ colla parte, so even if it is the same tune, it may not be useful to you.

Do you know that for your version, a piano arrangement exists at all? It is vital that the chords match.

If you wish and can, you can post here an "ABC notation" of your choral arrangement and chords, and I (or whoever beats me to it) will vamp you a piano part, which you can print.

1. You all know how important it is to me for us to be nice to newcomers.

2. Reverend Gary Davis's "I am the light of this world" is one of my favorite songs and one I often perform.

3. I laughed out loud at Dead Horse's post.

Viva La Mudcat.

Hi, Ken -

A number of us Mudcat "regulars" are church musicians, so Mudcat is a pretty good place to look for stuff like this (despite the occasional unwelcoming comments). If we've got the right piece, it was published by GIA Publications, and you can also order sheet music from Sheet Music Plus.

You can contact GIA (Gregorian Institute of America) through the Contact Us page on their Website. I've contacted them for information about pieces of music in the past, and they've always been very nice and very informative. I remember one nice chat I had with a GIA representative about a piece of music we agreed was tacky. Another time, GIA helped me get in contact with a college friend of mine - GIA had published a piece he composed.

Good luck.

-Joe Offer-
