|10:15 Service||We take a break from weekly updating until the robed choir returns on Sunday, August 26. However, you can be your own "Musical Sleuth"! Details on how to hunt online for the items we'll be singing during the summer are given below! HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!|
|Opening||ON THE HUNT FOR MUSIC!
Here's how to become a "Musical Sleuth" for the items we'll be singing during the summer:
1. What are we singing on any given Sunday? Go to this webpage, and click/scroll accordingly: http://www.ajwsmmd.com/muslist.htm
2. Open up another tab in your browser.
3. Copy and paste the title (with the hymn # - optional) of whatever you see of interest for a particular Sunday, THEN search for it in the new tab/page you opened up using:
a. YouTube ...and/or:
PLEASE - if you find a fascinating, interesting, or just plain WILD version of a hymn or song - send me the link!! My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
THANK YOU - to all of you who make reading this page part of your weekly routine. I think I have as much fun finding the items as you may listening to them! Back at the end of August!
Soli Deo Gloria,
Director of Music
St. Michael's Episcopal Church
|Hymn of Praise||Title
|Sanctus||Sung to the tune "Land of Rest"
As has been the case ever since I began finding items for everyone to listen to: not a single English version of this exists anywhere! Here is another Spanish version I found from a church in Mexico. Why the Spanish have grabbed on to this distinctly American Folk Tune is quite baffling!
|Fraction||S-154 Christ our Passover
Again, difficult to find this one on YouTube also - at least done well. This is the only one that I could find. You do hear the melody very clearly and the congregation in the background singing this Fraction Anthem that we sing for most of our Church Year; however, the microphone is too near the organ.
