The hymnal only has 1 verse in Spanish and 2 verses in English…I like this piece so much, I played it 4 times, so maybe you could sing 1 verse in Spanish, then 2 in English, then sing the Spanish verse again. OR…sing it 2 verses in English twice!
This is another in a series of mid-week hymns for you to sing along with at home if you wish. It’s also another remake of an earlier recording that was originally audio only, now a video.
This is the quintessential English melody as adapted by Martin Shaw, one of the most famous English church composers of the last century. Your mind can’t help but conjure up an image of a 50’s BBC television drama as soon as your hear it.
I’m re-recording some of the hymns I recorded and posted earlier in the pandemic, but as video, not just audio files. It seems that videos I’ve posted of music get way more clicks than pure audio posts. So…that’s okay. I don’t mind putting on a nice shirt and combing my hair if it makes it easier for folks to listen to the music.
If you have hymn requests, please email them via the church website (https://lakewooducc.org/contact/). Can’t promise I’ll do them all, but will definitely try to cover as many as I can.
This is #173 in the New Century Hymnal if you’ve checked out a hymnal during the pandemic and wish to sing along. Just humming along is okay, too.
This will appear in the next couple weeks as part of a Corona Sabbath post, but it’s posted here, by itself, for your weekend pleasure. This is a virtual performance–each choir member, at home, alone, records their part against a background track which is then assembled later. It’s their second foray into this artform. With each piece they get better and better. There will be more. Stay tuned!
The pictures of the choir and congregation are from church services and caroling parties and concerts over recent years.
