NASHVILLE, TN—Dr. James M. Stevens, chairman of the Music Department at Free Will Baptist Bible College, has released his eighth book of piano arrangements. The new release titled Christmas Dreamscapes contains fresh arrangements of classic Christmas carols as well as three original tunes written by Dr. Stevens.
The 44-year-old Stevens said, “Christmas is a time of joy, reflection, worship and hope. It is a time of excitement captured in the face of a child awaiting Christmas Day, a time to dream anew. Most of all, it is a time to worship the newborn King.”
Copies of Christmas Dreamscapes may be purchased for $12.95 from Dr. Stevens through his website (www.jamesmstevens.com), from local Christian bookstores, or from Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
James Stevens has published more than 200 compositions with national companies including Shawnee Press, Lorenz, Benson, Brentwood, LifeWay, Integra and others. He is a frequent winner of ASCAP Standard Awards for Composition and has performed in 16 countries.
Stevens completed the Doctor of Musical Arts in Composition (DMA) degree at the University of Kentucky. He has chaired the FWBBC Music Department since June 2004.
