Songs/hymns for 24th May 2020

Postby Rev Tony Newnham » 23 May 2020 08:59

Hi

Here's this week's songs & hymns for Wolston Baptist Church, recorded for use during the Coronavirus epidemic. I thought last week was busy with 5 items - there's 6 this week! (To be fair, there are 2 versions of the same song). Enjoy.

First up is a solo organ prelude on the hymn tune Llanfair (Hail the Day that sees Him Rise)



Next is a worship song (what we used to call "choruses") from the 1970's. I hadn't played this for many years. Our minister asked for it on piano, but I thought it would work well on organ too, so I recorded 2 versions, here's the first, on my Viscount Envoy organ.



And the same song on piano (plus a bit of organ from my Viscount Cantorum).



Then a slightly later worship song, King of kings, Majesty



Next up is a hymn that I'd not come across before. From what I saw on the web, it probably comes from the Salvation Army (which is where Neil, our minister, knows it from). The tune is Lloyd - and you can just imagine a brass band playing it. Here, thugh, it's on my Viscount Envoy digital organ.



And finally, a late addition to the mix is a Graham Kendrick song. Played here just on piano (Kord SP 180)



Guess who's going to have a lazy day today!

Every Blessing

Tony

Hi Tony. You certainly should take the day off. A splendid performance. I don’t know any of them but enjoyed my Sunday morning listen after my visit to the allotment. Keep safe. John

Hi Tony. It's that Church Organ sound that I really enjoy listening to. But you already know that. Hugh

Thanks for the comments.

Except on rare occasions, someone else chooses the music, so I don't have much say - one of this week's I hadn't played for a very long time, and the hymn was one I'd never come across (although I know the tune). As to instruments, I try & use whatever I have available that best suits the style of the music.

Every Blessing

Tony
