New simple settings for Palm Sunday - free offer!

From my choral sequence for Palm Sunday, 'Majestic Ride', I would like to share any of the following three hymn settings, each of which could be used separately, with or without congregational participation: 'Children's Hosannas' ('All glory, laud and honour'), 'My song is love unknown' and 'Ride on, ride on in majesty'.  They are easy to learn, especially 'All glory, laud and honour' and 'Ride on', with accompaniment for organ or piano.  Do have a listen at ('All glory') and for the other two ('Ride on' starts at about 4:00 minutes in), and if you'd like to have a look at any or all of them, I'd be pleased to send you .pdfs as required, which you are welcome to print and use freely, as they are currently unpublished.  The style is fairly popular and accessible - the first setting was originally done for  children - and much of it is in unison.

I have just listened to your three hymns which are beautiful. I have just started a new choir from nothing in Ballinagh in Co Cavan in Ireland and are
busy getting ready some simple music for the Easter ceremonies. I don't know if we are ready yet to tackle your music -- Maybe could do the "Children's Hosannas" - but would like to try them for next year. I would be very happy to have a copy of the .pdfs for all three and I'll record anything we do and send it to you. Many thanks for your very generous offer. My e-mail is  John.

I would be most interested in receiving PDFs of your new songs. I will listen to your YouTube links as well. Many thanks.

Many thanks to those who have already shown an interest in these settings!
Just to clarify - if you'd like me to send you just one (or two) of these settings, please specify which one(s), and supply me with your email address.  The easiest ones to try out would be either 'Children's Hosannas' or 'Ride on!', both of which can include congregational participation.  The advantage in asking for just one (or two) pdfs, is that the pages will be set out in a way easier for you to photocopy.  And just to confirm, you may use these freely, while they remain unpublished, but I'd appreciate some feedback on how they were received by choir and congregation if you do decide to use them!
Best wishes,
