Psalm-singing: new resources

by andrewlohr

Grace mercy and peace from Him. All the best in getting Psalms sung, brother. Love God, love God’s lyrics. My wife-darling got me to a Blue Man Group concert; triune Jehovah, yet more dear, got me to…Psalms, eh?

Here are some Psalm singing resources everyone is free to use; I’m not the musician to sell them, but I think I’m enough of a musician to show their potential to a real musician who’s interested. So everyone use freely (even to make money on your own versions of these.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3jW0Up68w0–part of Psalm 103 to part of Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”

http://voices.yahoo.com/video/osama-bin-laden-meets-king-david-3455908.html?cat=9 –A version of Psalm 2 to the tune of Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer.” (CCM James Ward thought this might do for children.)

http://voices.yahoo.com/video/psalm-120-wagner-tune-6196782.html?cat=33 — Psalm 120 to the
Wagner tune “Fanget An!’ from opera “The Mastersingers of Nuremburg.”

Most, not all, of my youtube channel is me singing pieces I like from an A.D. 1927 Psalter whose copyright does not keep me up at night. (Two emails to what I think the publisher’s heir-via-church-mergers went unanswered):

Amazon review of “The Book of Psalms for Singing” http://www.amazon.com/review/R1ZAJRGC4HUPZX.
My website, http://www.lohr84.com, might be findable in a web archive, but I’ve dropped it from the live web. My blog, andrewlohr.wordpress.com, includes some material from the website (including on Psalm singing) if you scroll down a LOT. (It includes trial-and-order accordion chords for everything in “The Book of Psalms for Singing.”)

FWIW and may His praise be glorious.

Yours in Christ Jesus, from
