YOUR CHOICE!

You choose a hymn this time. Your favorite hymn for the whistle. :mrgreen:



Remember to respect copyright law. Please don't post a hymn that was written after 1922, unless you happen to own the copyright for it.



If you are really wanting a score to follow, here's a hymn you can choose:

Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah, a Welsh hymn.

Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

This is a kind of two for one here. If you record the listed hymn, plus one of your own, that will be counted twice. In other words, your name goes in two times to the drawing list.

This morning I took a glance over at the whistle to be given away. It's tired of all the competition here -- all it's brother and sister whistles. It needs a new home.

As long as we are not making money from this we are fine. I can for example sing any song I want on stage and have to pay no one money for it. Posting sheet music is a nono but honestly since we are making no money, I doubt it will cause a problem is someone records something for posting here.

I think Shadoes is right, but all three of these (no matter the laws and how they'd be enforced, or not) fall within the fair use guidelines. The copyright for any of the songs is well before the 1921 deadline, and in most instances the writers of the words, or the composers of the tunes, are, shall we say, in a choir gone yonder and have been there now for at least a hundred years of rehearsal. ;)

That's not altogether true - many venues I've played that routinely offer live music have purchased licenses from BMI or ASCAP. Addtionally, churches buy licenses from CCLI to allow use of copywritten material. I do think that there is some 'fair use' doctrine that applies if we are not selling recordings, and CCLI allows for recording for 'congregational use'. You can also reproduce for sale recordings, but you're limited to 15% of your registered church size in terms of how many you can sell. Also the price is limited to $4.00, I think.

Please let me know if I'm mistaken - we're about to begin recording services for distribution to the congregation by CD.

What about Blessed Assurance? It's one of my fav's. I even have a HD version of it recorded that I could try to add whistle to . Humm.

Aaron, where did you go to find out if they were public domain?

Kathy :)

Public Domain - GO FOR IT!!

I checked CCLI - there are different versions that are copywritten (sic?) but the hymn is GOOD TO GO.

I like it, Susan. I'll bet the recorder you're using there would sound really nice with "Awake, Awake to Love and Work" and the more recent "Out of the Depths" tune.

The bad thing is that with this, and I'll bet with others that get posted on the 'you choose" categories, I now have a new tune I want to learn and don't have time for.

Thanks, Blackhawk. (I've put the avatar here so that if I change it later, at least folks will know what we're talking about.) As you can see it is a kind of metaphor for life -- beauty behind and all around, but up close there's trouble. 8)

Q: What's a metaphor?





A: To put your cows in.

Susan, I Will Arise (or Come Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy) is one of my favorite tunes. I thoroughly enjoyed your version of it. The tune for it, I think, was an Appalachian (southern U.S.) melody discovered and published by William Walker in 1835. How did you discover this one?

Wow, that is gorgeous, Susan! I'll have to see if I can learn that on whistle.

I'm leaving today on a long trip and don't have time to learn this new song, so it'll have to wait until life slows down a bit, next month. But for my "other hymn," I uploaded a version of What a Friend We Have in Jesus, played on my Tommy C olive wood whistle.

Susan, that's a wonderful song, the choice and the playing. \:D/

Connie, we were listening to a Christian service on the internet about a month ago and Adrian's ears pricked up when he heard this hymn. Neither of us knew it before. He said he was sure it would be a really good tune for the recorder. We managed to find the music after searching a bit and now it's one of our favourite hymn tunes.

Keith, I actually recorded 'Awake, Awake to Live and Work' on mini disc (on my alto I think) along with a few other tunes, but then the mini disc went haywire and only the two clips I submitted could be uploaded.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. The tenor I play is a very nice instrument, better than many wooden ones I've tried.

Here's one -- a choice -- from jrc. It's called You Are There.

About this one, he says:

Quote:
...an original song my wife and I did...It's just me, Karen and a piano - it's based on Psalm 139.

Walden chooses "Just Over In the Glory Land."


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


He says:

Quote:
TITLE: Just Over In the Gloryland (or as my great grandfather always requested it, "one twenty-one if you have no other").

COMPOSER: Emmet S. Dean

WHISTLE: Maple wood Bb tabor pipe made by Daniel Bingamon.

DRUM: E-M-S tabor

NOTES: Pipe and tabor played together at same time. No effects added.

Blackhawk: You've morphed into a really good, solid whistler. Nicely done, and a good hymn.

Jim, that song was a real treat. Thanks for sharing. Spirit-filled, heart felt, and nicely done.

Walden, That's some good stuff! I love the rhythm you created on there, and I have the feeling you're taking it way beyond traditional tabor and drum.

Author:  jrc [ Mon Sep 17, 2007 7:19 pm ]
Post subject: 

Blackhawk: Well played! That's a really nice whistle too - sounds sweet.

Walden: How can you do both things at once? That's like patting your head and rubbing your stomach, or patting your stomach and rubbing your head, or... very cool!
