Mercoledi Musicale

A little late with the regular Wednesday music post but I had to work on this. In honour of my new found - okay imposed - devotion to temperance. Mary Lou Fallis sings an inspiring piece from the Methodist Hymnal 1912, which exhorts us to have the courage to say NO!

This number is taken from a wonderful collection called Primadonna on a Moose. Miss Fallis sings popular Canadian songs from 1840 to 1930 including Paddle Your Own Canoe, Oh What A Difference Since the Hydro Came and By the Banks of the Saskatchewan.

19 marzo - San Guiseppe

While I personally won't be jumping on the water wagon,I have to admit I'd be better off if I did.
Mary lou sure can belt out a hymm!

For some reason, all I could think of was "The Infant Bonds of Joy" in "Bleak House". Good luck, my friend. Surprisingly, it does become second nature after a while.
