I have been following along with the music video log, Rise Up Singing, for several months.
The author of this vlog, Matthew Vaughn, is working towards recording all the songs in the song book, Rise Up Singing. This song book includes traditional folksongs; protest songs; the music of Pete Seeger; Woody Guthrie; Joan Baez; Joni Mitchell; Bob Dylan; Beatles tunes...to name just a few of the fabulous songs in this book..
This is music I enjoy - I even attempted to learn to play the guitar as a teenager using a songbook of Joan Baez, it wasn't to be. I didn't have the talent, or gumption to put up with very sore finger tips.But I love listening to this genre of music. As a teenager I also had a fascination with old Irish folksongs, and borrowed several lp's from our library with ancient, scratched recordings of very old men and women singing folksongs from their little cottages, in Ireland or Wales, as well. So, when I found Matthew's vlog, I took to it immediately.
Presently he is visiting family and friends in Canada. I thought you may enjoy this version of Dona Nobis Pacem, which Matthew, his brother, and friend, recorded at Muskoka Lake, Ontario.
The pristine setting seems to be a perfect place for this song sung in rounds, which translated into English, means "Give us Peace".
Hope you will enjoy! I can almost feel the brisk breezes off the lake. :)
