“If I say” by Jo McCafferty – video remix


Original YT playout date: 13 August 2008
Duration: 4:27

I was given permish by my talk radio friend and not exactly unsigned artist (she has her own label, but if Universal, Sony et al are interested, who knows?) Jo McCafferty who wrote and also performs this lovely song, among numerous others which you can find on her channel http://www.youtube.com/neosome and you can also see her talent on the Sunday night NTTBS shows on my channel.

I remixed the video a little bit, so you can go and see the original prior to the remix over on her channel! I’ll link to it off the video. There are also ways that you can buy the mp3s from her website.

All the Psalms


For a change this is a Video not from my channel. et me know if it comes down or is unavailable or anything, but this video is truly remarkable.  Eleven hours long, it contains fine choirs, especially Kings College Cambridge judging by the static images accompanying, singing their way through the entire Anglican Psalter.

Beautiful. God be praised.

And here, if the above were not enough, is a wonderful presentation, voice only of 120 top Christian Hymns.

Another piece from the concert in aid of the Mine disaster in Halemab, hosted by Holy Sepulchre Church in Warsaw, the church most people know as where the heart of Chopin is entombed in one pillar.

This clip illustrates something funny about YT, and not for the first or last time. I called this unknown piece as I didn’t recall the name of it, I did not write it down at the time. Later, in the comments, someone is kind enough to supply the name but I did not change the name or description, just pointed to the comment in the description. Well, of course YT being YT, comments are regularly lopped off, and so right now no comments are showing and I think it is the case with all my videos that pre 2008 comments are largely not visible.

Thankfully that is not the case here. Comments are ot programmed to come down anytime soon, so if someone can be kind enough to identify this piece in the comments here on HTV, I will be most grateful.

Lord, for Thy tender mercy’s sake (Farrant)

Another piece from the concert in aid of the Mine disaster in Halemab, hosted by Holy Sepulchre Church in Warsaw, the church most people know as where the heart of Chopin is entombed in one pillar.

This anthem was composed by Richard Farrant based on a text from the sixteenth century prayerbook “Lidley’s Prayers”:

“Lord, for thy tender mercy’s sake,
lay not our sins to our charge,
but forgive that is past
and give us grace to amend our sinful lives;
to decline from sin and incline to virtue,
that we may walk in a perfect heart
before thee now and evermore.   ”

Quote of the clip: “to decline from sin and incline to virtue”

This anthem was composed by Henry Purcell for the funeral of Queen Mary II in 1695.

I write these words on the birthday of Richard Berkeley who remains until today one of the most treasured friends we have made in Warsaw, and also the conduit of many other good friendships I have made, one of which with someone I also had the good fortune to meet today.

This is the final entry to the contest. About ten posts about on this blog, you may remember seeing my initial attempt which was disqualified by the judges for having “nudity” (the guy was in fact in plum coloured underpants) and for using parts of another movie (purposes of satire weren’t clearly defined on YT back then). My entry here has rememdied those issues, and the shifting position of the underwear got past the censors even though in some respects it was worse than the so called “nakedness” of the first attempt, but it still didn’t win. It was an “also ran”. One among a couple of hundred entries by the early YT community. The one which did wouldn’t be winning any contests these days, but these days there’s no YT community so there aren’t any contests.

Things do tend to go full circle though. When the next big thing is somewhere else maybe YT will still be a community of die-hard survivors who went through the corporate years unnoticed, like early mammals among the therapods. Who can say?

The various tricks and edits that I have here are about where I was after the first 140 or so videos and all the experimenting I had been doing. Today I would spend a lot longer on something like this, and produce something with many more cuts, but then again I doubt I would have time to do it anyway.

Anoth thought, has anyone noticed how Russian is considered a “cool” language to learn and people are anxious to learn it and then show themselves off speaking it, or singing it, in this case? That’s good, but the learner always has difficulty in realising that there is more still to come and in this case the Russian is admittedly a bit painful, and I advise those who are learning the language not to learn the mistakes in this song. Probably a native helped them, but not that much.
