Sounds of Home – (W)rap

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the May 11th edition of Sounds of Home!

Song of Home

Sing a song by the fire, chant it sweet and low;
Sing of love, hope, desire, as the embers glow.
Harmony rich and warm, cadence loud and strong,
Melody full of charm, beautiful our song;
Sing of work, sing of friends, sing of those who roam;
But before singing ends, sing a song of home.

Sing a song with the earth, sing with meadows gay,
With the fields sing with mirth, merry roundelay.
Sing with hills in the sun, forests cool and dim,
When the long day is done, join the evening hymn;
Sing above ocean’s roar, with the spraying foam;
But before songs are o’er, sing a song of home.

Music: Largo from New World Symphony by Antonín Dvořák

    Chris and Harry ~ I can only shake my head…. but I’ll be smiling for quite a while. Choir has new rhythmic horizons (challenges)!?

    And what an ending! Chris, Molly, Molly’s dad and brother (sorry, I’m blanking on names): Thank you soooo much. Gorgeous. I’m brought to tears.

    Thank you, Molly, what a gift you’ve given. I’ll be waiting for “next time”.

    Thank you! Molly and all who contributed. Loved the music as it brought back memories of Family Camp.
