Praise God With New Music

Long-time church member, Barri Armitage, has produced Think on These Things, a collection of 16 songs based on the Scripture and set to the folk melodies of the British isles. There is a tradition that some of these ancient tunes may have originated in King David’s court and later were carried by Jeremiah to Ireland. This music is suitable for congregational singing or “special music.”

The title song is adapted from Phil 4:8 and set to “Londonderry Air”, better known as “Danny Boy”. Barri wrote the second song, “Joy Will Come in the Morning” to help a friend going through a severe trial. It is set to the upbeat melody of “Loch Lomond”. “Rejoice in All Things” and “Fear Not, Little Flock” give further comfort.

Some songs, such as “Healed By His Stripes”, “Bought With a Price” and “Song of Moses”, focus on the Spring Holy Days. “Praise the Lord Forever” and “Thank Offering” are based on Psalms 113 and 116, part of the Hallel Psalms traditionally connected with that season. The last song, “full of Grace, Seasoned with Salt” (Col 4:6) ends with the words, “like an offering to God’s praise. “That is my goal”, Barri said.

Sheet music complete with words, piano music and chords is available free from Servants’ News--see the address below. (Those familiar with English folk melodies already know the tunes—just read the new words.)

The pieces are also available on CD, performed in solo, duet and quartet. The vocalists and instrumentalists heard on the album are professionals and life-time musicians with past performances at carnegie Hall, the Kennedy center, Grand old Opry, TV, etc. Barri taught poetry workshops to English classes at Ambassador College and was the poetry editor of the WCG’s Youth Magazine for several years. A special collection of Barri’s poems, Double Helix, won the 1992 Washington Writer’s Publishing House contest and was published by them in 1993.
