Joining the Blogosphere!

Those of you who have been readers of this newsletter for awhile know that I've been including a "Meditation on Our Hymns" month by month.

But this month signals a change--an exciting one for me. In the last few weeks I have developed a blog that is called Wordwise Hymns. As the title suggests, it is about hymns, and church music in general.

But as many of you will know, blogs are especially designed to facilitate a conversation on a particular subject. Readers can easily post comments about what they see, and I'm able to reply. I hope you will do that!

A Special Feature
There is something unique about this blog that I don't believe has ever been done before. It contains what we could call a Hymn Almanac. If you want to know what happened in the history of hymn writing on any particular day, just click on the blog and you'll see!

My hope is that the blog will add to the value of the website and this newsletter, and promote some profitable exchanges on the subject of sacred music.
