Singing and Sweets

Last Saturday, we had another psalm sing.  I baked a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, and invited others to bring more desserts if they felt so inclined.  Several people brought things to eat, including Hayley, who just happened to have a freezer full of Starbucks pastries that she was quite happy to share!  Thanks, Hayley!

I very much enjoyed the singing (and the sweets) and look forward to singing with you all again some time soon.

We started by working on the tune Howard again.  Once we'd beat that tune to death, as one person put it, we turned to the facing page in our split-leaf psalters, and worked on the tune Huddersfield.  Lastly, we did the long meter tune Duke Street.  Here are the recordings:

Psalm 92:12-15 to Howard


Psalm 98:1-4 to Huddersfield


Psalm 102:13-22, 2nd version, to Duke Street


(As always, you can download these recordings to your own computer from this site.)

We now have just over two hours' worth of psalm recordings, enough to make a set of 2 CDs.  Once I get a few CDs made, hopefully within the next week or two, I'll post more information for any blog readers who might be interested in a set.

My sister and her husband are finally back home after some time on the east coast and in Canada.  They stayed for dinner after the psalm sing was over, and we had some interesting conversations about their trip.  Maybe Mercy will post something about their travels soon, and I can share the link (hint, hint). :)

  2. Yes, there are definitely advantages to having a roommate that works at Starbucks.
