Noteworthy Music (Michael Owens)

    Noteworthy Music is the music service of myself, Michael E. Owens, to acquaint the world with unfamiliar congregational tunes.
    Anyone can learn a tune effortlessly simply by listening.  Many people are able to listen to recordings.  However, no one is likely to listen to a synthesized recording often enough to become familiar with it.  Therefore, live recordings are needed. With no choirs or instrumentalists at my disposal, I use what I have: my own voice.
    All selections were recorded in my office, for my enjoyment, using no professional equipment.  This is fast (usually 30 minutes per song), it's cheap, and the words are clear.
    The downside is that I am not trained or talented. Singing quality is listed for each selection, using the legend:  1: Poor -I need to record it again. 2: Marginal -Barely good enough. 3: Acceptable -The best I can do.  I post these for the sake of the tunes, not my voice.
    All recordings are in the Public Domain.  Please see the individual hymnals cited regarding copyright information for the lyrics and music.
    Author and composer attributions are not precise.  They are optimized for searching, not researching.
    For corrections, comments or requests, please write michaelowens@genevanpsalter.com.

Current Broadcast: My Righteousness in Christ

Michael E. Owens
Date: 3/24/2018
Type: Concert
First line: In the darkness of sin I did roam Tune name: RIGHTEOUSNESS IN CHRIST stanzas: 1, 3, 4, 5 Genre: Common practice Source: files Composer: Michael E. Owens Author: Charles Shofstahl Singer: Michael E. Owens Quality: 3 Comments: My only hymn with an “echo refrain”, I hope the seriousness of the lyrics and music set it apart from the "gospel songs" that my friend Charles so much disliked. He passed away in 2006 and never heard this setting.
