Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Psalm of Life (H W Longfellow)
Eliza Carthy and Norma Waterson sing A PSALM OF LIFE on their album "Gift" (2010).

Cathy Fink, Marcy Marxer, and The Children's Chorus of Washington (and possibly some others) sing it on "The Great American Folksong" (2010).

Gates of Goldrain sing it on their album "A Day in the Dark" (2008). This is a rock arrangement that's a little harder to like.

Jacqueline Schwab plays a piano arrangement on her album "Mark Twain's America" (1997)

Martin Simpson plays a guitar arrangement on his album "A Closer Walk with Thee" (1994)

Malcolm Dalglish plays it on hammered dulcimer, accompanying some female singers unknown to me, on his album "Pleasure" (1997)

I haven't sorted out whether they all play the same tune.
