Squeezebox is a place for our Song Leaders, as well as congregants, to learn the songs we sing at St. Lydia’s.
Click here to listen to our closing hymn, Come Down O Love Divine. We’ll sing this hymn on Pentecost and the following Sundays, until the end of June at a nice brisk tempo moving right from one verse to the next. Check out the music and text here.
If you would like to learn the alto, tenor, or bass lines, to help in the harmonizing (in the second and third verses), here are some mp3s that illustrate those parts. Each mp3 starts with the last phrase of the soprano melody (”And kindle it your holy flame bestowing”) and then illustrates a different harmony line (alto, tenor, or bass) on piano, with a full choir panned to the right. You can adjust the left-right balance of your playback device (or slide off the right ear of your headphones) to increase or decrease the isolation of the piano illustration of your chosen part.
