After a very long stretch of time without any psalm sings, we finally managed to arrange a last-minute psalm sing earlier this month. We had a very nice time singing, visiting, and eating delicious leftover birthday cake.
We worked on two tunes: Glenluce and Bloxham. Glenluce is a very old and very simple melody with a very interesting and unusual harmony. You may have heard other recordings of this tune, like this one and this one. We thought it was a good fit for the last half of Psalm 42.
Psalm 42:6-11 to Glenluce
Bloxham starts out just like Colchester, but then heads in a very different direction.
Psalm 119:97-104 to Bloxham
