Hi Russ,

Delightful sketches! How did you design your logo? I'd like to create a Baseball-type logo for my name?

Robin

Admin reply: Thanks! I used Adobe Illustrator to design my logo. The font is my own hybrid of several others plus extensive tweaking. I have many names already on Zazzle. Tell me your name if it is not there already.

Thanks Russ. I was curious about singing the Psalms and this was a great resource--the best I could find on the internet. Just one small quibble: the "familiar tunes in Common Meter" aren't actually tunes (music) but are hymns (poems). For instance, "Amazing Grace" is a poem written by John Newton in 1779. The tune it is most commonly sung to is "New Britain," which was first published in 1829. The were first published together in the hymnal "Southern Harmony" in 1847. Some shape-note hymnals still organize themselves by tune rather than poetry, so you would have to look for New Britain rather than Amazing Grace if you wanted to sing that song. I'd love to visit Japan someday. I grew up in Ohio and spent many summers in the Kidron area--knew a few Malone students.

Admin reply: Thanks for the kind words and the heads up. I guess I should have suspected that might be the case, since I've read similar stories (A Mighty Fortress is Our God and The Star Spangled Banner for example). I'll make the corrections in the article very soon!

your sketches and drawings are such an incentive to draw myself that I regret you did not post any after 2009
I wish I could carry on visiting this Japan of yours I do not know and appreciate.
Regards nicolas joly

Admin reply: I'm glad you were encouraged by the sketches. I have more recent ones at the sketching forum. By the way, please read "Please read this before registering" which can be found at the top of all three forums (and also on the home page) and then get back to me with the information I need for your registration.

Hey just found you accidently or by devine design ! We r Stutlers, now in Az but from Orange co., Ca.
Definately linked somewhere as our family comes mostly from Harrison (berg) co. W.V. My husbands dad was Lester Dwayne, his dad was Lester & mom Liberty from WV. We have a very prolific Stutler family with 5 sons & Mike's brothers 6 sons. Our heritage is German from the bavarian alps near Swedan. We all love and serve the Lord Most High, as, it seems, do you. One of my son's has Stutler Cabinets here in Kingman, Az. My husband and youngest son & I plan on making a swing through Harrison county this comimg July. weve never been back to meet relatives & hope to meet a few this summer! Would love to hear back from you, Marcia

Admin reply: Hi Marcia, great to hear from another Stutler, and to hear you are Christians as well. I'm sure we have the same ancestors in America and Europe. I've heard of Stutler Cabinets when I was researching the Stutler name on the web. I find working with wood very relaxing, but my skills are limited to simply avoiding injuries when I work with tools. :)

Where does one get the Revised Grail Psalms that have these accent marks for plainsong? I would be interested in this. Is this a kind of universal pointing as well?

Thanks,
-Stephen

Admin reply: One place is from the publisher GIA Music,

At the bottom of my singing the Psalms article I have a photo of it open so you can see a page with the accents. It's not universal pointing as you have described, because some lines have more accents than others, but you only need to ignore the extra accents. The groupings have generous space between them so chanting is easier since you can see what is coming at a glance.

Hello,

I pray the Divine Office daily, and chant the psalms in plainsong often. I like your idea about the pocket psalter from HTM (I love the language in that psalter)with plainsong notation. However, my dream psalter, instead of having a tone/mode "assigned" to a given psalm in that psalter, would have "universal pointing." I got this idea from the Monastic Breviary used by the monks of the Holy Cross (even though they use the 1979 BCP psalter). Universal pointing allows a person, so long as they know the "rules" regarding to the music of any particular tone relative to the accent marks and underlines of line 1 or 2 of a psalm verse, can sing any tone/mode for that psalm. As you know--depending on the season, feast, or whatever, any given psalm can be assigned any tone.

One of the drawbacks that I saw with the St. Dunstan Plainsong Psalter is that they assigned a tone/mode for each psalm, rather than universally pointing it.

Admin reply: Thanks for your message and insights! I can see how universal pointing would be a great benefit. Lately I've been using the Revised Grail Psalms, and one edition has accent marks for chanting. These Psalms were arranged with chanting in mind so they are amazingly easy to chant to any Psalm tone or even improvised chant - with or without the accent marks.

Hi Russ,

Thanks for the great webpage. I am new to chanting the psalms, and I am slowly figuring out how it's all done. But there's one main problem: I don't know how to chant the antiphons.

I have read that the mode that is used to chant the psalm depends on the final tone of the antiphon. But how do you know how to chant to antiphon? Is there a separate list of modes for antiphons?

Thanks,

Anthony

Admin reply: I confess that when I wrote the article on chanting the Psalms, I wasn't too familiar with the antiphons. It wasn't until after I started doing The Divine Office especially at Church that I started using them regularly. I still don't know how to chant them though!
