First observe of how many Notes compass the Tune is. Next, the place of your first Note; and how many Notes above & below that: so as you may begin the Tune of your first Note as the rest may be sung in the compass of your and the peoples voices, without Squeaking above, or Grumbling below.

CHRISTIAN HARMONY HOME SINGING, Jan. 30, 2016 — notes

land of harmony

I searched “harmonium” on the Digital Public Library of America site (dp.la) and all the pictures were of missions in Africa and India, courtesy of a collection at USC. Go figure.

CHRISTIAN HARMONY HOME SINGING
January 30, 2016

Present: Andre, Nancy B., Jamie, Aldo, Jon, Sam, Sabdh, Jasmine, Carol, Chris C. Charles, Melissa, Lindsay, nbm.

These are merely partial notes, maybe 80% of the tunes and 70% of the callers.* I was distracted by cooking and other things.  And no notes were taken of the after-lunch (but before-dessert) session with the Daily Primitive Baptist Harmony, copies kindly provided by Sam. Still, it will give an idea of the rep we got through and remind us of songs we enjoyed, or didn’t.  If you have anything to add (or correct: I can’t always read my own scrawl), I’d be glad to hear it. Please be reassured that the folks noted as “thinking of” are not dead, just not with us on the day.

The menu was: chicken chili, chickpea-squash Moroccan stew, rice, and broccoli, accompanied by cilantro, scallions, yogurt, and sour cream.  We were further honored with contributions of hummus, olives, kimchee, cheese, crackers, and other snacks, and a heroically gorgeous apple pie from Nancy Britton. Thanks, most profoundly, to everyone for coming and making it so much fun. Regular Saturday before Fourth Sunday CH singing returns at Menno House in February (Feb. 27).

* I made up these statistics.
