Music For The Soul #3: Jenkins, In Dulci Jubilo
I've just attended my Christmas Service (Livestreamed, due to covid precautionary steps). Today, I made calls to my friends in different continents to catch up with them, and definitely to celebrate the Christmas with them within a quick 3-min call :)
I'm thinking, many of us were raised and ear-trained under this western notation, what we know as a do re mi, with major and minor keys to start with. We celebrate Christmas Day with our own style of music. In fact, we might say we like this music, and we don't like the other. This's a no right-or-wrong situations, because once again, CULTURE.
I reckon it would be nice to step out a bit from our style, and listen to how people & friends, outside of our circle, are celebrating Christmas :)
But ya, this's a piece maybe 95% of you knew already, but in our own style. I don't know how this piece, with this particular style, would fit into my church service, but definitely it's good to know and to listen to!
Done talking, now let's listen :) Merry Christmas, if you celebrate!
And Happy Holidays / End of Year too, to everyone!
MUSIC FOR THE SOUL:
This series of "Music for the soul" is one of my hedonistic ways to enjoy my life: Good music with my tea / coffee.
Many music these days are very compressed, condensed, high pitched / so much treble, & poorly-organised. And many lead our feelings to become so unsettled, anxious, or even depressed.
Let yourself be immersed in this beautiful music; most are classical music (some won't be classical music; we're all learning how to appreciate every good music around us, either in our usual way or not).
Get your tea / coffee, sit in your sofa / bed, put headphones on, close your eyes, and just enjoy! :)
I always say Music is the supplement for human's soul.
Good music creates good soul.
ENJOY YOUR TIME!
