Hi friends.

A winter's song from me.

This is an attempt at harmonizing an old favorite psalm of mine. Written in 1765 as a meditation on the time of year when the days are getting longer, but the winter is getting stronger, by H. A. Brorson. "Her vil Ties her vil Bies" (Here will be silence, here will be waiting) is a dialogue between Jesus and the poet's soul over seven verses. Staggeringly beautiful, but in Danish. I just did one verse instrumental of the 1854 music for said hymn. you'll have to imagine the rest.

I attach the sheet as well so my mistakes become more clear.

Thank you for sharing that delightful hymn. My great grandfather came to the USA from Denmark and I enjoy learning about Danish life.

Thank you. We're much closer than we think across the pond  

I feel obliged to leave the professional version as well. National radio girls choir. It gives me goosebumps.

Beautiful! Both your banjo version and the choir. Just noting that choir video has 16k views and 136 likes. Do people just not click like ever?

Thanks a lot, Gunnar. I guess people searching for this kind of stuff are rarely so-me savvy.

Very nice. I enjoyed it!
A year ago I recorded the Czech Hymnbook for CGDA tuning. (CGDA Tenor Guitar, Ukecello, CGDA Mandola, CGDA Ukulele). I haven't had a Tenor banjo yet. I hope to make a banjo recording sometimes. smiley
