Post subject:  Song 5 - All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

I knew of two different versions of this hymn, but there are actually three. AND two different guys wrote the verses. :shock:

Here is the most familiar version (to me, at least).

Should anyone need to hear the tune a few times, an Internet search on the title and the word "midi" will bring up quite a few samples.

If someone has a whistle tab utility then by all means post a PDF of the dots for us. Just send it to the exchange/upload folder the same way you would upload a tune and I'll link to it.

EDIT: Mark wrote out the TAB for us:

Where did you find this lead sheet? The inclusion of the chords and the measure numbers is a nice touch. :)

If I can get it together, I'm thinking of collaborating with a fluter and another guitarist for my contribution.

Hey! I haven't recorded 4 yet. But I bought 2 new whistles at the Ren Fair, a Clare nickel D and a Waltons C. I really like the C it is great. I fell in love with it the moment I picked it up and played it. Al I could say was this is one let me look at some more. I think I will use the Waltons to record 4.

Most of these arrangements are with new tunes, but All Hail the Power just happened to be in the traditional tune.

By the way, I own the first three Indelible Grace albums this group puts out, and I'm planning on getting the fourth. If you like old hymn texts set to contemporary tunes with a worship band style, this is for you!

Listen to clips here: http://www.igracemusic.com/music/soundclips.htm

Oh yeah, they give their arrangements away for free at that first link I gave.

Judy posts our first clip on this one:
    "All Hail The Power of Jesus' Name" is played on a Tommy Tweaked Feadog C, accompanied by a Finale midi featuring trumpet, trombone, & drawbar organ. I tried to create a powerful piece as tribute to "The Power of Jesus' Name" .... didn't come close -- but I did try. :?

Judy, I'm wanting the whistle to be more "out front" in the mix. It sounds almost as if you're hiding behind the other instruments. Be bold, girl!

Next time, try lowering the level of other instruments a little, and putting the whistle track a little higher. Another way to make it stand out just a bit is with Equalization. Perhaps boost the higher end of the middle range to have the whistle "cut through" a little more. (Have you played with the EQ yet?)

Sorry - I'm such a tech freak. :)

I do really like your arrangement of the accompaniment. Those instruments are perfect for what you are trying to get across, and nice parts on Finale.

Shucks, Kitty ... I upped the sound on the 'others' to ... well ... hide the whistle is good. :P 8) ... No wait -- blend -- that's it -- blend in ... ;)

Tell me more about equalization. I've clicked it a few times, but haven't figured it out yet. All I see are old record names to pick from -- what the heck does that mean? I'm tickled you're such a "techie" -- I'm a bookkeeper, not a musician, and need all the help available in this recording stuff!

It sounds great Judy. Don't feel bad about not being up on the recording. I have been a computer Geek for over 40 years (yes I remember Univac I). I still have trouble with all the recording stuff. I just put in a new sound card and hope to produce a better quality recording now.

Oops - brassblower uploaded this a few days ago and I forgot to update the forum.

He writes: Instruments used: Clarke Original D whistle, Kerry Low D whistle, organ.

    The harmony I played is the only one I know. (It's the one I sing when we sing this song in church.) I wish I knew something about editing, but I guess what you hear is what you get.

    God Bless, Ron

"I wish I knew something about editing, but I guess what you hear is what you get."

I LIKE your harmony, Ron. I'll bet that sounds nice sung in church that way.

As for the editing, I absolutely intended to get back to the basics on this one, no fancy editing, but then I got a bright idea. Trouble is, bright ideas take longer to put together.

Thanks for the nice rendition. :salute: =D> =D> :salute:

I'm sitting here, listening to Brass's & Ron's version of this song. So different from each other ... both neat. The harmonies in both are great!

Ron, IMO, the versions with just whistle and/or whistle harmonies may really be the hardest to do well.

=D> =D>

:?: Anyone up for a challenge? A friend listened to my CD tonight and heard "All Hail". She knows all 3 versions of the tune and wondered how it would sound to put them all in one recording. This sounds a bit out of my league -- how would you go about writing a bridge between the tune changes?

Well first you would acquire some kind of psychotropic mind-altering substance......











Just kidding. A few beers would do. ;)

Ron, what would you want to edit? It sounds great. Nice job on the multiple tracks, especially the ornamentation in harmony. I love doing that.

:laughing:

I think I'll start with Hershey's miniatures & use them like Legos to build a bridge. It might not work, but the 'fringe benefits' of the job could be sweet .... ;)

Thank you all soooo much for your kind words. I tried to figure out a way to put a harmonica harmony in it, but like I said, that's the only harmony I know.

I'm looking forward to recieving my low G, whistle from Mack. I can't wait to use it on one of these songs. :mrgreen:

Here's Connie's post:
    Well, there it is. I wanted to use the Burke but alas, that whistle is at school in my desk. #-o I used the Greenwood in D.

    The first verse is Finale with piano from the hymnal. The harpsichord is my own arrangement.

    The second verse was a ton of fun. I found a Vivaldi "Gloria" midi I'd forgotten I put on my computer and ran it through ACID, chopping it up and re-pitching it so it could accompany All Hail the Power. The third verse is "Gloria" again with a few fun things added.

Connie, I listened ... like the Vivaldi add-in -- have to admit the first thought in my mind is "wonder how Kitty's going to top this?" Yes, I know it's not a competition ... but you guys come up with such neat and varied arrangements!

Actually my dear, I have had an idea in my head from the start but I just may not have time to get to it. :(

Although, I am having trouble sleeping tonight.............. :-k
