St. Basil’s Hymns – “Yoderized” on hammered dulcimer

I’m actually really excited about giving you this video. I’d like to know what you think. It’s a pretty common song but of course I Yoderized it a bit. But I just think you’ll really enjoy this little gift I have for you. I hope that it lifts your mood for the day and the weekend. As I was editing the video Lindy fell asleep on my lap listening. Her last words to me were, “Dad, I now have a new favorite song of yours.” :) You gotta love that.

Have a great weekend. I’ll see you soon.

    Ted, you're a*maz*ing. Your spirit, too. And yeah, perfect for a melancholy soul. :) Thanks.

    I played your song in the room our finches are caged. When they heard the birds in the video singing, they too began to sing until the song ended. It was a lovely thing to hear! I loved the song. It put me in a wonderful state of mind. Thanks for your special talent.

    The joy and mastery of your playing is great to watch, while the sound fills our hearts -- definitely a rest for any weary soul!

    I have a new favorite song of yours, too. I love the imagery of her falling asleep on your lap in the comfort of the sounds of your playing. So sweet. Songs from the orchard is an excellent series! I am really enjoying what you are creating. A true inspiration....
