Music, politics, and a smidgen of religion

Frankly, I am terrible at shooting and editing video. But I would like to get better at it. The abbey’s new satellite connection to the Internet is super-fast and, for the first time, makes it possible to work with video.

Here’s a wee practice video.

From the abbey organ, a Rodgers 730, this is a chorale prelude by J.S. Bach, BWV 644, “Ach wie nichtig, ach wie fl├╝chtig.” The German hymn was written by Michael Franck in 1652. The English words are by an American, William Allen, who was born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, in 1784.

    Wonderful! Video is a great addition to the blog. You should do a whole series of these with shots of various parts of the property, including the meditation rock out in the woods.

    Thank you that was entertaining. Now how about a video tour of the Abbey in & out?

    Beautiful music. I really enjoy the blog. Acorn Abbey is a fascinating place. Am trusting it has become all you hoped for, or is well on the way.
