Hi Ed
It took me about 6 seconds to get to hang with what you were doing and then once I did I totally got into the rythm of it.The vocals say to me that you love'd singing it and got lost in the song.The instrumental is excellent,laid back .Super Job vocals really pleasing with that falsetto feel to it.Its one of those hyms that lead to unusual versions like on the end of True Grit 2010 and your version is unusual as well and equally appealling.Give urself a pat on the back.H

Nicely done smile It has a nice groove, and your vocals are really something else. Incredibly unique in the delivery and timbre, but it adds a whole other level of texture to the tune.

Great work, and thanks for sharing!

Ed,
This made me feel that I was in a living room listening to you carried away with the emotion of the hymn ( one of my favourites).
The instrumental break may be long, or need something to sustain interest.
I love the timbre of your voice!

Robert

Another great old hymn...
I'm use to hearing this tune at a faster tempo...
But I see you chose a tempo closer to The Blind Boys of Alabama version...
Nicely done!

Honestly Ed id rather your version because its very reflective and I think it suits this hymn.It puts me in a place of relaxation and security and of unworry if their is such a word .That is what the hymn is about refuge in God.No need to hurry or rush about just take it easy in the knowledge you are safe.This Version conveys all of these things perfectly .Again very talented H

Thanks Ed for keeping the old hymns in the rotation here! I appreciate it! I feel the vocal effects work well with this slowed down version of the song! Keep at it! Thanks, Torrey

This is very nice, Ed. Has a very honest, pure feel to it. What you definitely want with any hymn. I like the slower reflective version of this hymn.

And the volume is up. smile

Enjoyed that Ed!

Hey, we’re long time Blind Boys Of Alabama fans. So this was an extra treat.

No doubt. I took it so far as to play bass in a mostly African American outreach in Sarasota. Remember that CD
mail club? I took full advantage and got to know most of the gospel musicians. Helen Baylor is a favorite. Also, always liked this group -- one of their best on video:

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
