of three I sing

August 8, 2008 at 12:07 AM

School has started. I am strictly doing elementary strings and elementary music this year:). My strings students start up next week, so today I had to start auditioning kids for chorus. Not really being a pianist, I learned the easiest possible arrangement of "America" to use as the main try-out song. Enough of them sang "of three I sing" that I checked the song sheet to make sure I did not have a typo. I now know that my own 5 and 6 yr old are really good singers and that I can in fact play the piano better than the average 4th grader can sing.

When I was a kid, I wondered what an "i-sing" was, since it was preceded by "the." I couldn't sing well, either.

Young people in America have stopped using language correctly. They rarely use "thee." They say "thy" when they actually mean "thou." What's ye olde world coming to?

"Of the icee..."

That's what I used to sing. Had no clue what it meant.

You made me chuckle with your blog, thanks!

for a long time, or so it seemed to me, I wondered what "donzerly" light was..couldn't find it in a dictionary...finally saw it in print...

"Dawn's early light.."
