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)

I like this set! Someone mentioned the song "1,2,3" to me, and I couldn't remember who did it. Len Barry! Thank you!

Hey, if you like Chicago, give Leonid & Friends a listen. They're a Russian cover band that does Chicago better than Chicago. I featured them last week.

Mike Golch said...

John Holton Cool,Be right over to check it out!! :) :-h d-)

messymimi said...

Great, fun songs that bring back good memories. Thank you!

Cathy Kennedy said...

Mike,

"1-2-3 Red Light" is a good oldie! Oh, yeah "1-2-3" is another vintage classic!! Chicago...oh wow, you have some fantastic number song titles! Have you listened to the Chicago tribute band, Leonid & Friends from Russia? LOL I just noticed John already beat me to the punch. It was through him that I learned about them. They are really amazing! Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M gang, my friend. Have a boogietastic week!

Mike Golch said...

I'm one of those people who secretly loved bubblegum, and 1-2-3 Red Light was one of those. Love the Beach Boys! And, can I second (third, or fourth) Leonid and Friends as a Chicago cover band? We all may make them stars yet. Great set! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
