Come Unto Me

I’ve been in Tasmania over last weekend and played two fine Marty Haugen songs that I wasn’t very familiar with – “Canticle  of the Sun” and “Come to the Feast” – at Star of the Sea, George Town.

I flew back into a terrible storm on Sunday and was lucky the plane wasn’t diverted and got home to an overnight blackout and no internet.  The internet was back on today and it survived tonight’s storm so…

Rex asked for this Bob Hurd song from the Eighties. The text is here. (scroll down)

The sheet music can be purchased at OCP.

I have made a simple backing:

Sing Hallelujah to the Lord

The refrain of this song by Linda Stassen was used a St Joseph’s, Dalby last weekend as a Gospel Acclamation. I was invited to play along with Joe’s group there where there was enthusiastic music at a well attended mass with great community spirit (and a six minute homily!)

Thank you to Joe and all at Dalby for their hospitality.

The text of the whole song is here.

I found it available online in this collection.

My backing is just the refrain twice.

Site Under Repair

I have been using an ancient, in internet terms, plug in, as an audio player for years. It is no longer supported on some browsers due to the flash not being used etc, and soon will  not be usable on another browser, so I have to convert the syntax to the native player.

This will take some time.

Until each post is fixed my backings will not be playable.  It will probably take me a month or two to fix this problem.
