I have recorded four more hymns with the Gofriller. I plan a large series of these, to help people learn to sing the parts. Since the last hymn I posted, I have tried to make them more expressive and have added reverb. See what you think. These are some of my favorite hymns. Try hymn 56 and 51 first.
Because of its range and mood, the cello is a great choice for exploring the four parts associated with hymns. I tend to take 51 a bit slower and 30 at half the speed - but I'm basing that on the Anglican tradition which some might find too formal and stately!! However, it might be worth experimenting with the tempo on both of these.
You've made 56 and 34 very expressive with good use of the GPO cello - lovely sound on these which I like a lot.
This was well worth listening to. I enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing.
It's alive! Thanks for the encouragment, guys. The numbers correspond to the new Trinity Hymnal (the lyrics for the old one are at www.opc.org/books/TH/, though the numbering is different between the two.)
The names of the hymns are: 30 -Our God, our help in ages Past, 34- The God of Abraham Praise, 51- O Jehovah Hear my Words (same tune for "Jesus, Lover of my Soul" , 56- When all your mercies, O my God.
I may post the lyrics someday, but not nuff time right now. If you can't find the lyrics to a particular hymn at the link above, let me know, and I will see what I can do.
