The internet is a wonderful, wonderful thing, and today I found yet another reason to love it.
Have you heard about it before? And if so, why did you not tell me?
Basically, it’s a website full of free, legal, downloadable music. I don’t really need to say an awful lot more than that, do I?
I need to do a bit more exploring and discovering, but for now I’m really enjoying my first NoiseTrade download: The Hymn Sing: Live in Nashville from Indelible Grace Music
These wonderful songs kept me company in Starbucks today whilst I worked, doing an excellent job of drowning out the horribly loud music that they were playing, and the horribly annoying conversation that the couple were having on the table next to me; my favourite is this one:
A wonderful tune, and more wonderful words. I love all of the verses, but here’s the first one to enjoy:
Jesus, I my cross have taken, All to leave and follow Thee;
Destitute, despised, forsaken, Thou from hence my All shalt be.
Perish every fond ambition, All I’ve sought or hoped or known;
Yet how rich is my condition! God and heaven are still my own.
Henry Francis Lyte, 1793 – 1847
What is your favourite tune of the moment?
In summary: glad for free stuff.
