This 19th Century Gospel hymntune was composed by William B. Bradbury, who also composed the music for a number of the most popular hymns, including Just As I Am Without One Plea, Jesus Loves Me, Sweet Hour of Prayer, The Solid Rock (My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less), and He Leadeth Me.

The words are by Jefferson Hascall, a minister of the Gospel who, in 1847-48, had a great revival that saw over 100 profess conversion to Christ in Worcester, Massachussetts.

Using my iPhone I recorded a version but can't get it to post. It is a m4a file. It's 464 Kb in size. Got any suggestions?

Aaron, is Angel Band first? Or Onward Christian Soldiers, as mentioned in Keith's thread? Just curious as to which one to work on first, if I get a chance to record anything.

Angel Band is first. I went with Angel Band first, because I missed seeing Onward Christian Soldiers. We'll do Onward Christian Soldiers next time.

I got Randy's file and translated it from Apple to mp3 format:

Thx Jim. The onyx is one of my favorites. I've found it to be quite expressive. Can't wait to hear what others come up with.

Nice, Randy. Enjoyed the sound of the Onyx and the ornaments you added. The recording is really clear. Didn't know an iPhone recording could sound so nice. (So says the person who hasn't changed phones in 5 years and is a bit behind in the electronic playthings game ... ;) )

Thx Judy. The phone works and its simple. Two things I need.

Awhile back I went on a low d search. Tried several truly nice low ds. The onyx is the one I liked the best. It is easier to play than some low f's.

Be fun to add some harmony to this tune. Seems to beg for it. If I get some time, I may see what I can do by putting it in garage band.

Added a guitar to Randy's version. Really liked the low D, and since that would have been my choice as well thought I'd play along with Randy's instead.

All seat of the pants - didn't look at the chart and don't know the song so it's likely far from what you're used to hearing.

Randy - if it bothers you let me know. I'll take it down, no problem.

Far from it. I am honored to have you join in. I am on vacation at the moment and can't seem to download it. Everything I try it says I don't have permission to hear it. Will try when I get back home.

Meanwhile, thanks so much for adding to it. I thought it needed simethong and am sure you guitar has added quite a bit.

You know this could get quite fun. All we need is a little mandolin, banjo, and some bones and we'll have an online pwa band.

That onyx low D is awesome Randy. The ocarina is also awesome Aaron. I have printed out the music but I am having trouble finding time to record it before I go into the hospital. I will soon have time during recuperation to learn and play.

Back from the "far country" now. How's everyone? :wave:

Many thanks to Aaron for bringing back the Tune of the Month! =D>

I've been more out of the music and into the visual arts lately, but I think I could get back into the music with a little inspiration.

Also thinking of contributing "Cantiga 353" to the Denny tribute over on the Blue Board.

These are wonderful! You know, the thing about this melody is -- even when it's just one whistle or ocarina you get a strong sense of the harmony.

Then jrc comes along with these chords completely different from my mental ones, but equally compelling. Nicely done!

All three of those recordings were quite nice. I recently got an old used autoharp and this song was one of the first that came to may mind for that particular instrument. I may have to try my hand at my own recording of this song.

Now that finals are done and I have free time again, I finally made some time to record this song. I wanted to showcase the autoharp since it's new to me and I love it, even though I'm not that good at it yet. It took me a lot of tries to get this right.

I first heard this song on "Oh Brother, Where Art Though", so the whistle part matches my best memory of how it went on that soundtrack, which is a bit different than the notes provided above. The chords I used with the autoharp do match the ones provided.

I messed up a bit right at the very beginning but I didn't want to redo the whole whistle part for one little mistake.

Sounds good to me! :thumbsup:

You have a much better grip on two track recording than I do. The autoharp sounds pretty good for it being a new instrument and seems to fit the song well.
