NPM hymn competition winners

Does anyone out there actually like these?

They were presented at the NPM national. I am particularly unimpressed with the Manalo piece, all the more so because his training is from a major music school (can’t recall just where).

Enh. Puppies and sunshine (as Gavin would say), rainbows, smiling Jesus in an off-white bathrobe and sandals, and strumming guitars.

If these are the winners, I wonder what the rejects sounded like.

Jeffrey, my thoughts exactly.
Well, the Manalo is...pretty, and, that's what most people like! (It was just a vote by some sort of committee, right? Majority rules!)

I don't forsee using those anytime soon, even once I do get another gig.
