Some Music/Comedy from My Friend Mylo

April 9, 2012

My friend, Mylo Hatzenbuhler, has some music, musical comedy, and comedy on-line.  You can check out his “A Loan Again” and “Born at the PCA,” (not a denominational reference), as well as a snippet from one of his convention appearances (link).  He has an official YouTube page, where you can listen to his hit, “Heifer Bells.”

You can also hear him weekly on 1450 KBMW or catch the podcast (here’s the intro segment), and the first Friday of the month on KFYR-AM.

Of course, you should check out his website: Farm Boy Music, including the store, where you can pick up his CDs.

His good buddy Clyde Bauman is also quite the singer and is featured in some of the non-comedy selections at Farm Boy Music.

Virtuosity – Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov – Yuja Wang

March 25, 2009

I was amazed at the skill exhibited in this very short performance of the “Flight of the Bumblebee” arranged for the piano. Yuja Wang is the pianist.

The musical gifts that God has given to some people are simply amazing. Honestly, I am not 100% sure whether the video is edited or not, the pianist’s fingers are moving so quickly and yet accurately. Either way, whether as a feat of musical or video-editing skill, this piece illustrates one of the good gifts God has given us: music.

Although we would expect that Adam could sing, instrumental music was developed in the sixth generation of mankind, around 3500 B.C. or so, by Jubal. Scripture tells us:

Genesis 4:21 And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.

Jubal was the son of Lamech by Adah. Lamech was the son of Enoch: not the Enoch who was translated, but Enoch the son of Cain and Cain’s unnamed wife. As you doubtless recall, Cain was Adam’s firstborn son.

This musical gift was handed down beyond the flood and became incorporated into the temple worship. You will recall that David and all of Israel played before the Lord with such instruments. As well, this can be found in Psalm 33:

Psalm 33:2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

May we glorify Him with this gift!

UPDATE: As you can see from the URL of this post, I initially ascribed this tune to the wrong composer. That has been fixed, thanks o an attentive reader who chose to remain anonymous.

Wes White – Thoughts on Church Music

August 28, 2008

I enjoyed reading Wes White’s interesting discussion of Church music – and mostly agreed with it (link). The major point he makes regarding the fact that singing is to be congregational singing is an important one that is overlooked by many folks.

For those who enjoy music – for those who are merry – for who simply wish to worship God – here’s a beautiful rendition of Psalm 103 – feel free to sing along:

Bless God and don’t forget his grace!
