Good to hear from you--and glad to know you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. :)

Hmmm, I've never sung from the Norumbega book. Is it still available? I'd love to add it to my hymnbook collection. Do you have the Harmonia Sacra?

If you ever have a chance to pick up a copy of a Mennonite Hymnal (the old one is red and the new one is blue), look up #606 in the red book which is now #118 in the blue book (but is still referred to as #606). That's what I cue instead of the Hallelujah Chorus when I want some rousing music. We sang it in church this past Sunday. It rocks.


Celebratory music: 1812 overture (cue the cannons!), the climax of Rhapsody in Blue, or the end of the Firebird. (All three give me the shivers.)

Thanks for sharing your methods of dealing with challenges and staying healthy in the process. Good reminder that productivity requires breaks and rest!

Deb Robson

Janet, yes, Norumbega is definitely available. Typography in it is exquisitely clear. If you want recommendations of tunes to start with, let me know. http://www.upress.state.ms.us/books/531

Nope, I don't have the Harmonia Sacra, or the Mennonite Hymnal, but it looks like that one's worth finding for #606! Thanks!

Deb Robson

Yup. Only there are just a few more NEW things to add, just arrived, and we turn in the ms. tomorrow. . . . Is that light the end of the tunnel, or the train?

Deb Robson

Cool. Great ideas. Thank you!

http://www.oldsongs.org/festival/ always the last full weekend of June. There are Sacred Harp sings Saturday and Sunday. A beautiful time of year to be in the Albany, NY area


I enjoy that you too do the shape note thing as well. I like the overlap in interests. I'm dragging/being drug by the woman who taught me to knit and taking another knittingfriend to a local sing this evening, so it's on my mind, a bunch.
