Fine Arts Friday: February stuff

Time for new songs for a new month. I’ve pretty much abandoned the Ambleside rotation this month and instead have chosen things that fit with our other studies.

For our hymn this month, I chose one to go along with a sermon series our church is doing on revival. The key verse of Psalm 85:6 “Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?”

“Revive Us Again” was written by Scottish minister William Mackay, who has a pretty neat conversion story. Like Monica, Mackay’s mother’s prayers did not go unanswered.

We’re studying the Civil War, so I thought I’d choose something appropriate. I thought of going with the precursor to “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”, “John Brown’s Body.” But that seemed a little macabre. So I went with the classic, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home.” The version below is a mix between the original lyrics as written and the drinking song that inspired it.

We’re also going to start reading As You Like It. We’ll start with the Nesbit retelling(af), but then I’ll go through the actual play with the girls, probably using No Fear Shakespeare (af) which is FREE online.  Both Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare by Edith Nesbit and Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb are also available free for Kindle.  You can watch the BBC’s Shakespeare: The Animated Tales version on YouTube.

And with that, we’re off for a Fine Arts February!

    Very good! I grew up singing Revive Us Again and When Johnny comes Marching Home, although I knew only a few words of the later that I learned from a movie. A lot of history in that song.
