Squeezebox is a place for our Song Leaders, as well as congregants, to learn the songs we sing at St. Lydia’s.
We’ll sing this lovely hymn, All Praise to Thee My God This Night, which can be done as a round, as a closing hymn during the month of July. We’ll take it a bit faster than the youtube clip (which has a slightly different text). Sheet music may be found here.
Listen to the links below to learn the harmony lines, with piano illustrating the given part and the choir panned to the side. (You’ll notice that this choir has been looped to sing the first verse over and over, so if you’re singing through the hymn, your words won’t match these recordings, but you’ll at least get the hang of the various harmony lines. We generally sing the first verse in unison before breaking into parts on the second verse, so each mp3 begins with a piano lead in from the final phrase of the first verse: “beneath the shelter of your wings.” This will help you make the transition into the harmony parts.)
Here’s what it sounds like when sung as a 4-part round.
