What a Wonderful World


Weiss, George David and Thiele, Bob, arr. Childers, Brian, From the Top Music

This pop tune was written for and recorded by Louis Armstrong in 1967 and was immediately a hit in the UK. It was another year or so before it caught on in the United States. It’s lovely melody and sweet lyrics are quite engaging, which accounts for this song being covered by so many artists these past 50 years.

Whispering Hope


Winner, Septimus, arr. Hurlbutt, Patricia, From the Top Music

A gentleman with the interesting name of Septimus Winner was a self-taught musician who had thousands of compositions to his credit, among them "Whispering Hope", written in 1868. The lyrics are not specifically religious – yet it appears in 48 hymnals – likely due to its lovely message of hope.
