Some Favourite Tunes

19 Mar

I love music. I love all kinds of music.

I especially love the way song writers are able to capture profound truths in a very concise way. I thought it might be fun to share some of those amazing lines with you in this post. I will give you a link so you can listen to a few of them that you may not know that well. Enjoy!

“Well might the sun in darkness hide, and shut his glories in. When Christ, the mighty Maker died for man the creature’s sin.”(Alas and did my Savior Bleed, Isaac Watts)

“Thy mercy is more than a match for my heart,which wonders to feel its own hardness depart. Dissolved by Thy goodness, I fall to the ground. And weep to the praise of the mercy I’ve found.”(Thy Mercy, My God, John Stocker)

“Oh Perfect Love come near to me from hatred help me part. So I may bless my enemies with glimpses of Thy heart.” (Perfect Love Come Near to meWesley Randolph Eader)

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved’s mine. So you bring all your history and I’ll bring the bread and wine.”(Lover, Derek Webb)

“He knew who his betrayer was, He washed his feet, He washed his feet. He knew who his betrayer was, He washed his feet, He washed his feet. Oh, He loved them so.”(He Loves Them SoWesley Randolph Eader)

What are some of your favourites? I would love to hear from you.

    If you would like to play English dance music, here is an opportunity to meet other players to learn and swap tunes regardless of what instrument you play, to what standard, and whether or not you read music. This will be a chance to nail down some of those tunes that you recognise when you hear them but can’t quite remember, to put the names to familiar tunes, and to play them over slowly until you are sure of them. Printed music and computer software are available for 285 of the Lewes area’s favourite tunes. The tunes are now available as two books, price £10 for Volume 1 (180 tunes) and £12 for Volume 2 (105 tunes)illustrated with dance notations from Sussex manuscripts, anecdotes, photographs of the habitats where they flourish and an index of the combinations in which they are often played. Click here for ordering details. Alternatively, you can obtain them in various computerised forms . Discreet tape recorders are welcome if you don’t read music.
