Rest in the Lord (Psalm 127)

My friend Dave Stuntz of Blacknall Memorial Presbyterian Church in Durham, NC is planning to use my Psalm 127 song “Rest in the Lord” this Sunday and asked if I had a demo he could play his musicians. Indeed, I did not. I have a video of me yacking about the song in a Calvin new song chapel, and though I do play the song at the end of the video, it’s not something I would put my own musicians through, never mind Dave’s musicians.

So I decided to take the opportunity to record a quick demo of the song. It was going to be strictly a one-take affair, but you know how it goes:  a cord crackles, it feels empty without the bass, boy it could really use a shaker and some background vocals…

This is also a good opportunity to update the music. I’ve made a few small changes recently, so if you have an older version of the song destroy it without delay and download the new new PDFs of the leadsheet or vocal/piano score.

Then we’ll wait for a report from Dave about how it went, and maybe he’ll even be willing to share a recording from their service.
