Hello, all. Song 25. I hope the Europeans, Brits and friends from Down Under will be willing to indulge the U.S. people on this one. You see, in America we begin the Christmas weight-gain season by celebrating our thankfulness to God in November. On Thanksgiving day in November we eat way more than our stomachs were ever designed to hold. Then, rather than exercising off this excess, we waddle to our televisions to watch American football. This somehow expresses our thankfulness. :? Of course, so that we won't lose those hard-earned extra inches around the waist, we eat a big Christmas feast, followed by a New Year's Day feast, and then we give one another candy on Valentine's Day in February. Then swimsuits appear on store racks some go on diets while others sigh and grab some leftover chocolate. But I digress.

Anyhow, some churches include this song in their Thanksgiving playlist.

Love your clip of "Come ye"! :thumbsup: This is hot stuff.

I uploaded a quickie clip myself but it seems plain in comparison.

Were you playing the Clarke again? It sounds like one and I know you can get the very best from a Clark Original.

Your playing still reminds me of Herbie Mann. Do you have any of his CDs?

European people - Scarlet you mean? Don't go around calling Brits European!

An American friend of ours landed in London and got a taxi from the airport. In passing chit-chat with the driver he said that he had never been in Europe before. The cabbie told him no uncertain terms :shock: that our friend still had not been in Europe! :shock: ;)

Brits often talk about going to Europe. As in, I'm going to Europe at the weekend to get some shopping. :D

My apologies to the Brits among us. :oops: To the English, as well. ;)

Okay, here's a fine piece of work from one Brit:

So according to my browser, jrc's should be along in about 8 minutes, 5 seconds. :roll:

Here's jrc's:

It comes without comment. It kind of speaks for itself, though.

Thanks brother - yup, it's the Clarke Original, and my keyboard.

I have heard Herbie Mann - it does have that kind of flavor.

It just felt like it wanted to be a really happy song. Most of what I record is kind of dark and heavy. This one just seemed to need to be upbeat, joyous.

I really enjoyed your clip as well - nicely done. I started with a more traditional approach like yours - that's really how I heard it first, but I couldn't make it fly. I don't have that ornamentation quite in my ear or under my fingers yet.

Wow, great versions, guys! I'm going to enjoy playing this one for years to come. Of course, it'll be weeks before I post a version because I'm way behind and want to do some catching up on the previous songs I missed.


In the meantime, these are the lyrics, which always help me to learn a song:

Come, ye thankful people, come, raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide for our wants to be supplied;
Come to God’s own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God’s own field, fruit unto His praise to yield;
Wheat and tares together sown unto joy or sorrow grown.
First the blade and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take His harvest home;
From His field shall in that day all offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast;
But the fruitful ears to store in His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, bring Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified, in Thy garner to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels come, raise the glorious harvest home

Apology accepted. ;)

BTW "My apologies to the Brits among us. To the English, as well." This is a tautology as all English people are necessarily Brits. Not all Brits are English though just as not all Americans are Californian.

Ren-Tin-10 has a version of this song in the upload folder. I don't have the time it takes to download, upload, and post a link. I've got to get off line. BUT...I know you wanna look, so go ahead. :)

*hi-five*

Thing's got one nasty tongue too. Where does he put it?

Between my parents I have ancestry in Scotland and England (dad) and Wales and Cornwall (mom). Not Ireland tho, which surprises people. And of course we've all been here for at least 120 years (possibly upwards of 300 in the case of the Welsh, but we haven't been able to substantiate that) so yeah.

I enjoyed that very much and like the variety of instruments you used.
You are very good at keeping your music clean and uncluttered.

Thats's a fact ... that, IMO, is also one of the really cool things about this. teh different spins on the same song.

Ren - very cool. I so like the Clarke. Well done!!

I will honestly get you guys linked up tomorrow. Plus, we'll get caught up on links to the Christmas project.

My husband is grading papers for an online course this weekend, so I'm jumping online as I can. He's taking a break right now, but it won't last long enough for me to download and upload (on dialup) as one must do for links.

Thank you!

We all truly appreciate your effort Connie!
