Song frequency list

Jane Spencer has compiled a list of all songs in the Carolina book and how often they have been sung over the past few year. One document is sorted from most frequently sung to least; the other lists songs by the order they appear in the book. Very interesting and a challenge to sing those unsung ones!

This was our first experience of a "presentation" singing. Although we are new and learing, the class was very attentive and accomplished some good singing, using songs that we had worked on before. We still took the time to work on parts as needed. This is how we will continue to learn.

 

One of our observers bought a book and another took the pictures that are on the Where we go page. So, the Old Fields Singers may find events like this work for us.

 

The day was clear, breezy and mild. There were around fifteen in the square.

observers/visitors. After dinner she counted 78 singers and 32

Chris called this song for John Plunkett. The struggled with an unfamiliar tune with unusual harmony and unusual timing. But, by the third verse, we had almost gotten it. Even the bass gets a couple of notes on pitch.

 

All that aside. if you choose to play this,or even if you don't, please do send a prayer for the health and peace of our friend.

95-Parting Hand

 

There were approximately twenty singers.  The day was clear and mild.  Some farmers were getting the first cutting of hay from their fields; we
wondered whether they had gotten any at all last year, for the drought.
