Let It Rise: Holland Davis

 I think I have played Let It Rise many times for various churches. In fact, I'm thinking I have sung Let It Rise with a couple of worship teams and have even used the cow bell (clanker) or whatever you call it. Overall, it is most effect. On the keys I have used an organ patch or a rhoades setting and I think it sounds great. Are you familiar with Holland Davis and any of his other wonderful songs? Perhaps you have a favorite of his. Hope you'll stop by and let me know.

Anyways, here's a midi of the song Let It Rise written by Mr. Holland Davis. I love the groove but especially the organ sound (B52 organ is hot). Moving the song up (modulating) sounds so pro, don't you think?
