This month I'm going to "cheat" and direct everyone over to The Center for Church Worship to download their MP3 of For the Beauty of the Earth. It's beautiful! Just go here: http://www.songsandhymns.org/hymns/detail/for-the-beauty-of-the-earth I realize it doesn't have all of the verses, but it has all the verses you'll ever sing in a church.
October is a difficult month for me to record because it's SO busy. We have 4 immediate family birthdays this month, and this year a bit of traveling (Paris, here I come!). So I hope no one minds me not recording too much!
My Mom has agreed to help me record by recording the piano accompaniment. When we are able to get to that, hopefully I'll also record this month's hymn. But it will probably not be in October.
Here are some YouTube links:
