From: Fortunato
Date: 31 Dec 08 - 09:40 AM

I invite all the Mudcatters around the world to sing with Susette and I tonight, New Years Eve, and tommorrow New Years Day.

Tonight 8:00pm EST we'll sing "May the Circle Be Unbroken".

Tomorrow at 4:00pm EST we'll sing it again.

I invite you all to sing with us, a different song if you will.

Thank you all for the fellowship this year. I wish you peace and good health in the coming year.

That's 12-31 5:00pm Pacific Time "May the Circle Be Unbroken".

1-1 at 1:00pm Pacific Time we'll sing it again the 1-1-1 thing
seems appropriate way to start the first day....very one-ish.

is this part of a larger effort, or your personal plan?

Ooops, I'm a day ahead of myself!
Well, I did it anyway, but that gives you a chance to sort out which words we're singing and what key.
So you'll be doing your thing in about 4 hours time?
If Im still awake at 2pm NZ Summer time.....
We were out very late - playing my Northumbrian smallpipes up to midnight, then doing the Auld lang syne thing at the right time.
That was followed by a feast and we didn't get home until 2am.
So we're a bit short of sleep.
Happy New Year from tomorrow!

Have we all got the same words?
Here are the words from the cyberhymnal:

The words are the work of Ada Ruth Habershon (1861-1918, born in London, England), written before 1908, with music by Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932).

Will the circle be unbroken

There are loved ones in the glory,
Whose dear forms you often miss;
When you close your earthly story,
Will you join them in their bliss?

Refrain
Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
In a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?

In the joyous days of childhood,
Oft they told of wondrous love,
Pointed to the dying Savior
Now they dwell with Him above.

Refrain
You remember songs of heaven
Which you sang with childish voice,
Do you love the hymns they taught you,
Or are songs of earth your choice?

Refrain
You can picture happy gatherings
Round the fireside long ago,
And you think of tearful partings,
When they left you here below:

Refrain
One by one their seats were emptied,
One by one they went away;
Here the circle has been broken—
Will it be complete one day?
Refrain

10 minutes to go...
Robyn

Will the circle be unbroken,
By and by, Lord, bye and bye?
There's a better home a-waiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky.

I was standing by the window
On one cold and cloudy day;
And I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away.

Lord, I told the undertaker,
"Undertaker, please drive slow;
For this body you are hauling,
Lord, I hate to see her go"

I followed close behind her,
tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave.

Went back home, Lord, my home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone;
All my brothers, sisters crying
What a home so sad and lone.

Now my mother, she's crossed over
Where so many have gone before.
And I know, Lord, I will meet her
Just waiting at glory's door.

I just finished it here in Colchester, CT USA and I even got my wife and 19 year old son to join in on the double chorus ending with the elongated allelluia type ending. Hah hah, my son is still singing it in the itchen while he is getting ready for his friends to arrive for their New Years Eve get together.
It felt great for me. Makes me think that I did a proper ringing in of 2009 - even though my wife and I will probably be sleeping by 10:00.

Let us know if you join us. If you don't sing, then do raise a toast to a brighter new year.

Loved the idea folks, but just wondered whether 'next year' it might be possible to find a song which is a bit more 'inclusive'.

OK. I own up! I do usually join in with this one, and with others like it cos they have great tunes, wonderful harmonies and can be sung with gusto - but I just couldn't bring myself to do so this time. I wanted something that held real meaning for me.

Any suggestions for something suitable?

And I'll be singing in a little less than three hours' time.

We sang the cyberhymnal words, then followed that with the first and last verse of the other version (but the middle part was too morbid for me).
As we were finishing, our neighbor knocked on the door and I was called away to rescue a baby bird - a song thrush that had fallen out of it's nest.
By the time we arrived, there were 2 other birds, slightly older, one with a broken wing and I think he'll die, the other was very mobile once the neighbor's dog put it down. Then an adult bird called to it and he took off, stopped in the middle of the road so I had to chase it right over before the oncoming car squashed it, and now he and mum are over the road.
The others are in a box under the bushes so we'll check on them in a while.
Phew!
It's 10 in the morning here, on 2nd Jan.
Happy New Year!

Hello LIttle Robyn, CapriUni, Breton Cap, et al.

thanks for all your enthusiasm.

I'm open to suggestions about a more appropriate song. Let's keep up the search and give it some thought.

I've had responses from a lot of folks by email and PM as well as you folks here, and it was a good start. I envisioned it as Little Robyn described it, a song circle around the world.

Let's keep the circle of fellowship alive.
all the best
