A Psalm Sing At Last

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
