It has the sound of somebody who's lived with the song for a while, loves the tune, plays it from his heart, maybe even (hopefully) connects with God through this tune.

You express a lot. It's mournful and hopeful.

Wow ... what a difference in all three of the last additions here -- all are very good! To me, Shadoes has an ethereal sound to his, Blackhawk's is a cheerful rendition and Adrian's almost sounds like a mid-eastern song of mourning.

Cool! =D>

Adrian has given us a new playing of this tune:

I'm grateful to TPE for learning this beautiful melody. I don't feel i have done it justice yet. I think it is very easy to get in the way of this tune.

I played an Overton F.
Wow, that's gorgeous, Adrian! I can tell you, that Overton never sounded that good when it was in California!! But seriously, your interpretation brings out the beauty of that tune in a way I never knew could be done.

You know, I think Josh's Be Thou My Vision was described in a very similar way. Sorry to whomever I plagiarized.

We've had so many good straight whistle tunes come out of this project, but I think this one and Be Thou My Vision stand out as having been done with similar breadth of feeling.

Sounds a bit like Native American flute to me.

Keep posting, please!

Hey, Cal gave us his version of this tune:

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... us_cal.mp3



And here's what he says:

Quote:
This arrangement began as an organ arrangement, then for tuba quartet and flugelhorn, and then this from my CD.

I first heard this song at the memorial service for one of my friends in college - he died of a heart attack in our dorm the night before the spring semester of our freshman year, and a gal sang this song (and played violin) at the service. It stayed with me, and became my favorite hymn.

It's played on an Alba Bass Bb, a Water Weasel Bb, and all other sounds are from Reason (Propellerhead Software). (except for the pipe organ - there are a few organ sounds there, blended together, all from the Sanctuary card on my Alesis QS7) Final mixing was done in Cool Edit Pro, and the mastering was done at Disc Makers when they made the CDs for me.

In memory of David Chase... be at peace, brother, in the arms of your Savior.
