Guess what? Susan graced us with this tune on her new Dreamflute Bass before she left.

Rich (and deep) tone. In comparison to most the other whistles or flutes played on PWA, this thing comes in like a Tuba. I like it and it fits the tune well.

Great googley moogley! Susan, that bass dreamflute is amazing! And you definitely have amazing lung power to get such full, sustained notes out of it. Cheers for you and your bass dreamflute! =D>

I told Susan that if the lighthouse foghorn breaks down at the port here they might call on her services! :shock:

If so, it'll be the best sounding lighthouse they ever had.

Man, you all have done real justice to this song! I can't seem to wrap my mind around it, but I've enjoyed all your versions.


Try it. It will sound great on your Humphrey or WW. It is a very nice tune and you don't have to add anything to make it sound good.

Well, due to your encouragement, Adrian, and after having listened endlessly to jrc's version, I have recorded this with no attempt at keeping a beat, but as you suggested on another song, I have thought of it as a slow air. I am playing it here on my Howard low D.

Nice job brother!!! Finally - I got to listen.

I prefer that song 'free' for sure - unmetered is much better for that tune IMO.

Nicely done - do it again!! :laughing:

I like the sound of that Dreamflute Bass. To me it sounds kind of haunting, a nice fit.

In another recent thread I posted a clip of my new bamboo D and said that I had only been playing for a few weeks. I'm sorry, but that is only partly true and I must come clean. True, it is my first transverse flute (one you hold to the side) but I had the pleasure of studying the Shakuhachi (a japanese flute that's held vertically) for about 2 years. You hold it differently and the embouchure is different but a flute is a flute I suppose. I just wanted to post a short clip to clear that up bit. One quick take on a long bass flute by Perry Yung.
On a side note: one of the coolest things about the Praise Exchange is that I know so many of the tunes by other titles or different sets of words. Besides the Finlandia tune from classical music, I also heard this at a mass last weekend sung as "A Song of Peace".
This is my song, O God of all the nations,
A song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

Very nice, TC! And I like the alternate words. It broadens the appeal of this already excellent song.
