Since time is not my friend right now, I went to Mark Bell's great site, Whistle and Squeak, and this one: Be Still My Soul.

http://www.geocities.com/whistleandsque ... MySoul.pdf

Mark's pdf comes complete with a lovely whistle tab.

Not that it matters, or that I ever pay a great deal of attention to it, but...

there are more/less than four beats per bar.

Is that typical with hymn charts?

Maybe I can help:

First staff line: "Be" falls on the second beat. "Bear" also falls on the second beat, and there should be a quarter note on the first beat tied to the previous measure. Also, there should be a new measure/bar line between "tient" and "ly".

Second staff line: There should be a new measure/bar line between "to" and "order". Also, "In" falls on the second beat of its measure, and there should be a quarter note on the first beat tied to the previous measure.

The rest of the staff is accurate.

Cheers,
Jim

Wow! Shan's first.

She says:

Quote:
Connie,

I was really excited to see this hymn once I realized it was the same song that Ginny Owens recorded, which is one of my favoritest songs EVER. So, instead of doing the posted version of the song, my husband and I had a ball the other night trying to figure out the notes from the CD so I could play it. I played it on my regular old student flute because I can't half-hole a whistle for anything. *sigh* The airiness of a whistle hides much, but there's nowhere to hide on the flute!

In case anyone would like to hear the original, there's a sample at amazon's page here.

Now I MUST get to work.. or my long break will be over and I won't have done anything except play whistle/flute!!

I am curious. In the posted sheet music there is no half holing needed. Everything falls right in the key of D. What were you trying to half hole?

She's got a totally different tune arrangement. Sounds nice, Shan.

I think she was trying to play along to her CD rather than the sheet music posted in D.

Yup. Composed by ole' Sibelius himself. Instrumental in Finland's struggle for independence. Borrowed for many sets of lyrics, including the lyrics, "Be Still My Soul."

Those Christian hymnwriters--always on the lookout for a pretty tune to go with their words. 8)

Sorry for any confusion I caused by jumping the gun and posting a different version before someone posted the "regular" version. :oops: I just realized my amazon.com link didn't come through in Connie's post, so here it is again if you want to listen to a sample clip of the song I was copying.

And thank you for the compliments. You are very generous with them! Now, somebody please hurry up and post their version of this song so I can stop feeling all by my lonesome here. 8-[

Ok, here you go:

Hi-Fi:

http://ezfolk.com/audio/play.php?mode=s ... g_id=11170

Lo-fi:

http://ezfolk.com/audio/play.php?mode=s ... g_id=11170

I had intended to wait for Connie - I hope I'm not overstepping what's acceptable on the forum with the links. I noticed the PWA songs open with Quicktime and EzFolk like Winamp - I don't know if there are space issues or
accessibility issues for different users. Please, if they are abusive let me know or the moderators can just delete the links.

Thanks Connie -

What is the right thing to do about the EzFolk links? I was thinking I could save you a step or two, but there's a lot to this forum technically about which I'm clueless.

Would you rather we wait for you to post the link?

And thanks again for everyone who makes all this work. It's a wonderful place to 'congregate'.

I like this -- had a sneak listen yesterday at ezfolk. I was really surprised (in the good kind of way) when the accompaniment comes in on the second verse. The best word I can use to describe it is cool.

Thanks Keith -

Just trying to do something different with the tune - not that the chords weren't off the wall enough :P !

peace -

Jim

Jim, I don't see why there would be a problem with posting the hi fi and lo fi streams. That's a great way for us to hear it right away.

I just threw the Quicktime in there too because it loads onto your computer then plays. That way the dialup folks can hear the good quality version too.

Jim: Dreamy - good stuff. I like your timing, the ornaments, the reverb, the keyboard. Very nice.

Keith: Nicely played, just a touch of ornamentation, and I always love the exotic wood sound of the Abell.

Jim, that was wonderful as always.

Was it a Chieftain or Overton?
