New words and a jazzed up harmonization of Auld Lang Syne.
Written for “First Night” family oriented celebrations of New Years Eve, the words offer a welcoming in of all who see a rest and shelter, resolutions for a better world, and that the “last night of the year be the first night of the next.
From the album Instruments of Peace, the song 4/4 Guitar Marimba! Digital Download only!
This is a gospel-flavored melody with my words adapted from a poem by Kenneth Patton that makes a good opening song for a service or a blessing for a house. Four verses go into a repeated 4 bar vamp with a counterpoint “Let this be a house of peace” chant.
This ¾ tune in a swinging gospel style has gotten wide acclaim and use as a congregational hymn in the Unitarian Universalist Church as well as some other denominations. This choral arrangement adds some counterpoint and different voice parts taking the lead. In a coda section there’s a 4/4 gospel, layered repeated riff that could draw in the congregation. It’s syncopated and may take a little time to figure out, but once you get the feel, it’s worth it – really rousing.
As the title implies, this collection of Jim Scott songs is filled with life-affirming messages perfect for community celebrations and spiritual gatherings. It features old favorites such as Song For the Earth and Gather the Spirit plus more recent compositions (Healing Waters and We Are the Earth). In arrangements anyone can play, the songs have piano accompaniment with chord symbols. (Don’t forget, you may need one for the soloist and one for an accompanist.)
