Dear harmonizing Lydians,
Here is “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing,” which we’ll be singing through September.
The files below use a recording made at our retreat in July, when a number of us learned the harmonies for this hymn. (Thank you, Rachel Hurn, for recording us!) The harmony part is always illustrated in the left channel by a piano. Each file begins with a piano lead in that gives the final phrase of the melody so you can practice making the transition to whatever harmony part you’ve chosen. (I used the third verse because we sang it better, but when we sing together at dinner church, we’ll begin the harmonies on the second verse.)
