John, this is beautiful!  What a wonderful medley, and thank you for introducing me to Dear Lord & Father of Mankind!  I love this and had never heard it until now.  I also much appreciated the story of Faith, thank you showing how our instruments become part of the family!  Thank you for sharing this!

Calming music and a sweet-toned and well-loved dulcimer - it doesn't get any better than this on Thursday evening! Thanks for what you do John.

This is lovely John. Beautiful favorite hymns played with love. Very nice sound from the "enhanced" dulcimer.

These hymns are played on my "T.K. Obrien Student Dulcimer Model #36".  She came into my life at a reduced price having once had a small crack that was restored.  Now she is no longer a number, or a second, but a friend named "Faith".  She has a sweet and soothing "Ionian" voice and likes to do arpeggiated chords when we do hymns together.  Recently I gave a little gift of a "transducer" mike to her.  She is absolutely delighted with it for now her soft voice is enhanced.
