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)

That's still one of the best parodies of The Beatles I've ever seen. It was an absolute stroke of genius, and seeing George Harrison as a TV reporter was just the icing on the cake. Thanks for posting this!

Mike Golch said...

John Holton,I'm glad you enjoyed that one.:) :-h d-)

XmasDolly said...

Oh my gosh, that was hysterical. I've never seen that before I've got to show that one to the hubby! Bwahahahahaha Good one my friend! A total hoot! Now the dulcimer's I totally love, love, love!!! I remember seeing my first one at a neighborhood fair and watching the ladies play like about six of them together it was beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing!

messymimi said...

Mike Golch said...

Mike,

I didn't watch the entire parody but it looks like such a gas. I noticed a few celebrities Billy Murray and Paul Simon to name just a few in the first 20 minutes or so. I shall definitely save it to finish up later. Now, the dulcimer hammers are always a pleasure to hear! I think its a neat instrument. We got our oldest daughter one when she was young and it made the purrtiest sound. It was scaled down version of the one in these videos. Thanks for sharing and for dancing with the 4M gang, my friend. Have funtastic week!

Cathey kennedy,at first it was just enough to collect different Hammered Dulcimer Music on cassettes and CDs that when I was at a Dulcimer festival at Roscoe Villiage in Coston Ohio i bought my Hammered Dulcimer,it was made by a local maker who does not make them any more.

bookworm said...

The Ruttles - oh, it's been so many years, but I remember how hysterical that parody was. I have to find sometime now to watch this. I didn't recognize "In the Garden" but enjoyed "Come Sail Away". Nice! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

Hey Mike,
Now that was fun! The Rutles. I hadn't seen it before. Very funny. I have to come back and finish the rest but it was cracking me up.

I really enjoyed hearing Come Sail Away on the dulcimer. I read in one of your comments that you bought one some time ago. Did you play it? Do you still?
A dulcimer festival? I bet that is magnificent!

Hope you're having a good week,

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! Who could forget Rutlemania? It was everywhere. Wonder what happened to them. ;)

Michele Truhlik said...

Mike,
I just left a comment and hit Publish but it's not showing up. Did you get it? I hope so. If not, I'll try to recreate it here.
Anyway, I appreciated being introduced to the Rutles and I'll be back to pick up where I left off. Funny stuff.
Love that sweet sounding hammered dulcimer. "Come Sail Away" sounded good on it... Thanks for showcasing this very cool instrument.
