The folder for Holy Week CD is in the upload folder. I've already put in a couple of scores and midis to help you start learning tunes. These are both resurrection hymns.

Go ahead and post what you want, but PM me when you do so I can post a link to your tune. :D

And it's perfectly okay to have multiple versions of one song.

Well, it looks like we've got ourselves a CD single. Ren Tin 10 has kindly donated the first tune, Jesus Christ is Risen Today.

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... ntin10.mp3

Quote:
This track is the result of cobbling together three different keyboard recordings of the tune. For the first verse, I went for a "primitive" sound on the piano. For the second verse, I went for a more "funky" sound on the portable organ. Then to wrap it up, I went for a "grandiose" sound on the church organ.

I hope you like it. 8)


Thanks, Ren. Anybody care to create a flip side?

Hey, that's nice! I usually prefer jazzed, but on this one your high church organ was my favorite. :D

That's kind of ironic, because I normally prefer primitive to grandiose, and the church-organ track is actually my least favorite of the three, but I was trying to put a little something in it for everybody. ;)

The organ track makes me think I ought to be quiet and stop swinging my legs or my mom might smack the back of my head. :D

My dad preferred flicking the top of my head to smacking the back of it, so maybe that's why I prefer the primitive. Or maybe it's just a guy thing. :mrgreen:

I used the exact same fingering for all three tracks, so this is an illustration in how simply slipping a different instrument under your fingers can change the whole complexion of the tune. 8)

Ren Tin 10 provides the flip side!!!

http://praisewhistlers.org/exchange/son ... ntin10.mp3

Quote:
This is my second contribution to the Holy Week album, a mountain dulcimer duet with myself.

The tune is one of the most used in the hymn tradition: Hyfrydol.

I love that tune. The dulcimers make it especially nice.

Our next Holy Week song is from khl, "O Sacred Head Now Wounded."

I've left my track of "Oh Sacred Head Now Wounded" played on and O'Brien. Reverb added. It isn't perfect, but it's about all I have time to do right now and I wanted to contribute.

Yay! :mrgreen:

The empty-hall reverb really adds to the emotion of it. Very nice! 8)

Nice, Keith! Do you have the dots for this? I had never heard of it until this board, sometime last year.

Interesting! I have never heard this before. Man, the things I learn on PWA!

(Thanks Blackhawk and R T 10 for the comments. I like the tune very much and when I had tried it throught and then heard it with the 'empty hall' reverb, it seemed just about what I wanted to convey.)

I'm actually, as of this morning, on the mainland. I will look for this online and see if I can find the notes. Bach uses the tune throughout his Saint Matthew Passion.

Found it here: http://www.hymnsite.com/lyrics/umh286.sht
Also here (from my Church's website) with a different text and title and in a D whistle friendly key:

Click on Hymn #197 "Oh Savior, Thou Who Wearest a Crown"

Is it too late for me to post a song for this, seeing as how Easter is already over? Yesterday we ran a video of the song "In Christ Alone," and I realized that can be considered an Easter song. At some point I'm sure I recorded it somewhere and can post it, I think. If it's not too late.

I don't think it would hurt to post it. Looks like folks simply got too busy to record for this.

How about including some Pentecost songs? That's coming up soon.

Connie reminded me via PM that In Christ Alone is a copywrited song. I hadn't even thought of that. Ah well! I'm looking for an excuse to post a song on the new olive wood whistle Tommy made me. :mrgreen:
