Not sure what got up my nose, but somehow I just sneezed out this Agnus Dei (at least it was about as easy, natural and satisfying as a sneeze). I am also working on a Gloria and a Sanctus & Benedictus to round out an acoustic mass for folkies. It’s nearly complete so stay tuned for additional videos.
I find that certain instruments inspire me to play differently, sing differently, find different melodies, etc, and sometimes the words just flow out and fall into place. This session, fiddling with my wife’s old 1960s Yamaha FG-150 acoustic (recently back from Dayton’s guitar doctor c. wright, although it’s going back to him soon to have that Baggs M1A pickup installed properly), is evidence of this… minor chords and aeolian melodies are not my default setting at all… but it kinda works with the Agnus Dei text. I hope you enjoy it! (Chord chart is included in the description on the youtube page.)
