Okay, so under the Projects tab is the first part of this “project” – re-writing Psalm 119 with the acrostic in English letters (which will be a problem, given that we have 4 more letters than Hebrew, but I’m thinking we could likely skip X and Z at a minimum <g>). I’m currently up to J.
The other part of this project is to sit down and concentratedly learn to actually sing this Psalm. One part a week, and I’d be finished by the end of October. There are a few choices, which I’ve likely listed elsewhere in here, but I’m most likely to go with this or in my endless quest to try and understand just exactly how plainsong/chant works within the Anglican church, I’ll see if I can’t get a lady at church to show me. I’ve got books, but they may as well be in Greek for all I’m not understanding them.
I’d like to actually understand plainsong before I start school. I have no idea if they’ll have the distance learning students doing it, but I figure better prepared than not. <g> The congregation may have to allow me practice in chanting canticles. We’ll see.
