The Ancient & Modern (New Standard) - the "old, red book" .... 'full of = all the hymns we know well' (and from which I can catch them out any time I = want .... 'that's the first time we've sung that hymn !' And the 'new' "New Hymns & Worship Songs" - 'the new, yellow book' ..... containing so many that they know so well, already ... (is it just the colour that puts them off ?) .... with many really old songs from the Methodist and Salvation Army tradition.   It's the 'new' book which has most of the children's material we now use. = I suppose by some's standards it's really old-fashioned stuff - even though the book's edition is 2/3 years old - but then, the church dates from = 1190, and we're old-fashioned sort-of people.   Being the type of film watcher who STUDIES the credits of films, I enjoyed =   watching a re-run (only the once) of Groundhog Day and was interested in = the composers of Ray Charles' "You don't know me" - they turn out to be Cindy Walker and Eddie Arnold (both enshrined in the Country Music 'Hall of Fame' - with, was it, her grandfather ? the composer of "Hold to God's Unchanging Hand" - and there on the web I found a Gospel choir singing it.   The web truly is a Pandora's Box - containing so much that is good - and = so much that is bad ...... what a pity that we have to protect children's research so much, filtering everything through 'sterile' software. It = seems to be another limitation imposed on their childhood. and then, thinking about 'Little red Riding-hood' .. hasn't it always been thus?   Harry Grove [a.k.a.............. a musicman not particularly worried by the size of Grandmother's teeth]     ----- Original Message ----- From: "Randy Terry" <randy@peacham.homeip.net> To: "'PipeChat'" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, March 04, 2005 5:19 AM Subject: children's music in general     > Interesting topic, and timely for me.

Good for use as individuals songs or a medley; organ or sing-a-long. If played with nice full organ regiistration, it will be pleasant surprise from the familiar piano children's accompanyment.   BTW - Excellant for use at senior homes. But be prepared for some tears.
