January Psalm Sing

On Saturday afternoon we met once again to sing some psalms.  Jeshurun is away just now on a trip to Israel to visit our parents, so in his absence I decided that rather than attempting anything ambitious, we would just sing some of our favorites. :)  I asked James to precent, and put Mark in charge of coordinating things.  Since we didn't have to spend much time practicing unfamiliar harmonies, we were able to sing six psalms.

I really enjoyed myself, as always.  I am so thankful for friends who are willing to come sing with us, and who sing so beautifully, too.  :)  

If you'd like to download these recordings, you can do so here.


  1. Any way you could tell which one is most popular? I think it would be nice to see which ones people think are best!

    -John Smith

  2. Well, John, I definitely have my own opinions as to which ones are best, but it would be neat to know what other people think!

    If you go and click on each psalm one at a time, you can see on the bottom right how many times that song has been downloaded (tho I think every time someone plays it on my blog, that counts as a download)--but the number of downloads might not necessarily reflect what people think of the recording; for instance Psalm 1 has been downloaded/played the most at (currently) 276 times, but maybe that's just because it's first on the list.

    What do you think, John? What recordings are your favorites? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that one of your favorites might be Psalm 90 to St. Agnes...?

  3. That was beautiful! Especially "Contemplation"

  4. Thanks, Isobel! Contemplation is one of my favorite tunes. :)

  5. Hey Sharon, I've been clicking on this post a lot lately -- Olivia recognizes your blog and always says, "Sinnnng?" when she sees it. :D

  6. Awwww! Mercy, that's adorable. :) I was just thinking about writing a post about Olivia...
