The lyrics:

When morning gilds the skies, my heart awaking cries;
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Alike at work and prayer, to Jesus I repair;
May Jesus Christ be praised!

The night becomes as day when from the heart we say,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
The pow'rs of darkness fear, when this sweet song they hear:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Ye nations of mankind, in this your concord find:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Let all the earth around ring joyous with the sound:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Be this, while life is mine, my canticle divine:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
be this th'eternal song thro' all the ages long:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Here's Adrian's photograph, which inspired the selection of this hymn.

Really nice, Shadoes. Some MIGHTY fine whistle work in there. I like the guitar, too. That's not a loop, is it? I assume you did that yourself.

that would indeed be a loop. I had to create the ending though :) That is a 12 string with some FX on it from a VST instrument called ManyGuitar. I thought it was a nice little loop. That and I don't own a 12 string hehehe. I really want to get a midi guitar so I can do my own strumming then change the instrument.

Come on folks. I can't be the only one doing this one. Remember the idea behind TPE was to at least try songs you might not know when they are posted too :) <taps> come on now.

You won't be. I've been trying it out on various instruments, but I haven't decided on an arrangement yet. :?:

Still working on it and trying to decide on which whistle (or whistles) to use.

Isn't it odd. I was listening to the rather plain midi and my first thought was, I wonder what Shadoes could do with this. Lo and behold as i scrolled down there was your offering and delightful it is too. :thumbsup: 10 out of 10 for me!

I've often thought of posting midi of the four part harmony to give folks a context for the melody. I shy away from doing that, though, because I don't want to overly influence you guys' choice of chords. Shadoes' version is a great example of non-traditional chords being better.

I love it! 8)

You're giving me a couple of ideas by putting in counter-melodies between the verses and using a "12-string". I'm thinking about doing a Byrds-influenced version and putting little snippets of tunes like "Mr. Tambourine Man" between the verses. Whaddaya think? :mrgreen:

I uploaded 'When morning guilds the skies' Plain whistle. Generation Bb. I'm not entirely happy with it. I'll redo it later.

Very nice Adrian. I'm sorry not to comment on other tunes but I don't have time at the library to listen and Adrian tips me off when he's posted something. The Generation Bb is very good.

Don't worry about it, Susan. I haven't been making too many comments either. Since I only have dial-up service, downloading the clip may take a very long time. I can easily lose the time to listen and the time to post when other responsibilities demand attention. :(

Sweet! I liked the trill at the end. You have far too many whistles though! :shock:

Thanks, Adrian. As far as the whistles go, let's just say that you don't know the half of it. :oops: :? ;)

Keith, it has an open-metered feel to it. I don't know quite how to describeit. It's like a comfortable conversation, maybe. I like it.
