ABOUT THE HAMMERED DULCIMER

The hammered dulcimer is an ancient trapezoidal musical instrument played by striking the strings with wooden hammers.

Originating in the Middle East about 2000 years ago, English soldiers brought the instrument back to England after their failed attempt to conquer Persia during the Crusades about 1000 years ago. Dulcimers have many names in many lands: santur in the Middle East, yang q'in in China, hackbrett in Austria, zither in Germany, and cymbalom in Hungary. The name "dulcimer" is derived from Latin, meaning "sweet sound". Hammered dulcimers were popular in England during the reign of James I, when the Bible was translated into English as the King James Bible. The dulcimer was mentioned in the Book of Daniel 3:5 among other instruments "..the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music..." The dulcimer was later mechanized to become what we now know as the harpsichord which later evolved in the piano.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

THE SERENITY PRAYER
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

Oh my goodness, what great choices. I always remember Blue Velvet as the first dance I ever danced with a boy at my first boy & girl party. One of the reasons was because this chubby red headed boy that asked me to dance sang in my ear off key, but he sang Blue Sequins cuz my dress had a top of blue sequins... talk about corny!!! bwahahahaha Have a fun week my friend and you have wonderful choices here. GREAT JOB! BIG HUGS I LOVE COLOR OF THE WIND!

Cathy Keisha said...

Great array of colors and songs. Thanks for sharing.

John Holton said...

Bobby Vinton. Great stuff! All of these are, but his especially.

Mike Golch said...

Marie Moody and Cathy Keisha,thank you both.I am glad you enjoyed the songs

Ann Clemmons said...

I love Bobby Vinton..Blue Velvet..I haven't heard that song in so long...and Roses Are Red is great. I've been trying to figure out how to add Music Monday along with Sandee's Awww... Monday's, and I think you just showed me how. Plus, I copied your Music Monday kitty cat with earphones. Can I put it on my sidebar? In any event, great post and Happy Monday!

Here's a blast from the past. My husband has been reading a historical book about Native Americans. We really were jerks to them and it didn't stop after Pocahantas. There was a lot of nasty done in the 1920s, too.

Nice choices, I haven't heard Bobby Vinton in years.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Mike,

How funny, one of my blog buds reminded me of Bobby Vinton's two biggest hits, "Blue on Blue" and "Blue Velvet". Vinton did an entire album of blue song names in 1963. "Colors of the Wind" is a pretty song. Thanks for sharing the dance floor with the 4M gang, my friend. Have a colorific week. :)

Oh yes, Bobby Vinton!
I almost went with Black Velvet too. Glad I didn't! ;)

Thanks for playing as always.

Bobby Vinton songs are classic. I actually saw Alanah Myles in concert

Michele Truhlik said...

Hi Mike,
Wow, Bobby Vinton! I haven't thought of Bobby Vinton in AGES!!! I .love his "Blue Velvet".
And "Black Velvet" is definitely one of my favorite songs. I could play that one over and over...
The Disney song was a nice add...

Have a great weekend. Fun post!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Awesomely colorful song choices, Mike! ;) Thanks so much for the dance! :)

bookworm said...

Bobby Vinton (sigh...) Blue Velvet is such a beautiful song (as is Roses are Red). Some of the songs of that era sound so dated - this will never be dated, so beautiful. Sigh again! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
