This next hymn will slow things down a bit, with an old Irish melody, St. Columba. Lyrics are by Henry W. Baker, first published in 1868.

The King of Love My Shepherd Is

The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never,
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.

In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.

Thou spread’st a table in my sight;
Thy unction grace bestoweth;
And O what transport of delight
From Thy pure chalice floweth!

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.

I've got a dulcimer version out on the FTP Site (too big to DL).

Verse 1: Traditional noter/drone style.
Verse 2: Fingerdancing
Verse 3: Strummed chord/melody.
Verse 4: Plucked chord/melody.
Verse 5: Fingerpicking.

Arranged from most to least "traditional". ;)

Thanks for the kind words guys. I haven't been able to post until now - crazy weekend, in a good way.

There's 2 Jim's in ... what now? :mrgreen:

This is a little bit like cheating, but here's a version I recorded on the Abell A in the last year or so:

I'll try to record something more recent if I get time.

I wish I could make a low D sound like that. I think the low D is beyond my ability.

I would love to hear the dulcimer versions on the FTP site but I can't seem to download or play it. Its just what I need right now. I just went to the ezfolk site and listened to the Great Selkie. I absolutely love it.

:sunny2: Two more great versions!


Ren, very cool! I couldn't decide which style is my favorite. Leaning toward the fingerpicking just a bit .... of course.


Gorgeous, Keith! Glad to see you post that link. I knew someone had recorded this before, but couldn't remember who. #-o (Strange, EZfolk wouldn't let me open your page, but I could link from here for the tune to play .... :roll: )

---------------

Ron, I had to 'copy' Ren's tune from the FTP to my music file, then play it. Maybe, when one of the moderators gets time, they will provide the link to Ren's version for easier access.

Thanks Ron - I'm sure you could get around the low D. Just gotta get used to it.

I had some issues with this before, and am reluctant to try again, but ... here's RTT's version:

If it sounds weird let me know and I'll remove it immediately.

Nope, sounds great, as does Keith's and yours, jrc. Excellent!

Way to go Darvis - I really like that whistle. Very sweet!

And another nice comparison of styles from RTT -

Does anyone go back and listen to the older recordings here? I think there's been a lot of growth musically... I know I made some progress, not there yet, but not giving up either. And not just on the instruments, but with the recoding techniques too. I think there's a big difference in a year or so, collectively; ymmv :mrgreen: .

Great playing guys. I just listened to each of them. I don't think I'd ever heard this setting of the 23rd Psalm before, though I'd seen it in the hymnbook.

\:D/ What a sweet sound you get from that Overton, Darvis ... NICE! :thumbsup:

Thank you, Judy, Jim and Aaron. It's a very pretty song. I love the fact that the melody is Irish.

I haven't gone back through these posts to hear my own, but I have put them on my IPOD and then at some point as I've listened I've said "Man, I need to delete that and do it again, right this time." This forum has really helped me grow, definitely.

Great sounds guys .... I have never heard this song before ... sure is a nice one. Shad should take them all and blend them for a composite .. think you would sound good together.

Here's a more recent version on a Burke Low C Aluminum.

Keith, I finally downloaded your low C Burke version and played it. Absolutely loved it! You get wonderful tone from that whistle.
