Very pretty Kimberly. I sure hope you get that mic! It's so nice now I can't imagine how much better it will sound with a good mic.

Very pretty Kimberly. I would love to see JH's rendition in his pj's and sitting like you as well. Hee Hee!

Thanks, Chuck and Brian! Yes, I'll have to keep on Santa's case about getting me a better mic. Smile.gif I just hope I've been good enough this year! 25.gif

Very nice Kimberly! I also hope that Santa brings you a better mic, so we can hear your playing even better. :)

That's my favorite Christmas song and you've done an awesome job with it - Thanks for sharing that! Grin.gif

John Henry! You make me laugh. Grin.gif Can't wait to see your noter-drone version of this song! Oh, and I double dare you to record it wearing your pj's while sitting like me! Grin.gifGrin.gifGrin.gif

John Henry--that was a compliment (as I am sure that you know!). "JH style" translation: noter/drone thoughtfully-played with feeling/emotion without having to be super-speedy. Examples--Holy Manna, Bonny at Morn, etc, etc. So, please posts that version, John Henry, so I can see what tuning I should use (please!!).

Great stuff Kimberly, you know I am a fan 41.gif , despite the psychical and mental damage you have caused due to me trying to assume that playing position 43.gif (mental note, do not record in your pj's John, they just will not cut the mustard in the same way !!!) Goschi, it gives me a perverse delight to know that not all of the tunes able to be played on the dulcimer originated somewhere other than Europe 3.gif ! And Rick, it so happens that I had decided this year to post a noter/drone version of this, but after your hurtful remark "fool around with it, JohnHenry style"...........! Well, what can I say..............33.gif !

Beautiful, Beautiful!! Nice pj's too. :)

Lovely rendition - now get that microphone on your Christmas wish list!

Thanks, everybody! This is one of my favorite carols to play. I'm always amazed at the arrangements Larkin comes up with. Smile.gif Regarding the poor sound quality, if you want to hear a clearer version of the same arrangement, I've posted a sound file on my page. It's the same version, but my friend is accompanying me on the guitar and the sound quality is a lot better as it was recorded when we played it at church. Smile.gif Goschi, I like your version! Very pretty. Thanks for sharing it! Smile.gif

This is absolutely great, Kimberley! More than 400 years after it was first published in a printed songbook, it's still one of the most famous Christmas carols over here in Germany.

I have been working on that song as well during the last days. But now you've been one day earlier with recording it! Apart from some chords, I play it in a similar way - but I really admire the incredible soft sound you achieve when playing that old tune!

And you really should have a better microphone - so let's hope Santa Claus or whoever else is in charge will bring you one soon! Smile.gif

Kim...once again you've done a beautiful job!

With or without "a proper mic" that was lovely. No one would have noticed the pajamas if you hadn't mentioned it. It's so pretty (and why not with a tune harmonized by Praetorius and arranged by Larking and played by Kim) it would have escaped even the most picky person's attention.

Kimberly--Another great tune--I had to look it up. I am always fascinated by old tunes and was surprised to read that this one is from the late 16th C. Thanks for posting! (I am going to fool around with it in noter/drone John Henry style.)Grin.gif

Well I love the pajamas. And I would love to be able to sit like that and play the dulcimer. And of course, I love the soft, tender manner of your playing. Very pretty.

(For the record, I don't love the mic, but it lets us hear you, so we are all thankful for its efforts.)

Thanks, Carrie and Robin! Glad you enjoyed it. Smile.gif Perhaps, Robin, if our paths ever cross again, I can teach you to sit like me. Grin.gifGrin.gifGrin.gif

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, Kim, and you play it beautifully!

I don't mind the pj's though I am very envious of your ability to sit like that and-- the tricky part-- get back up.
