Music-themed Emails Entertain Choir Members

Mike Ellis has been sending out fun little emails to the choir, usually providing a recently-posted song he’s discovered along with a little quiz. Write to Mike if you want in on the fun.  Here’s the latest:
Paul Simon just posted (3/19/2020) a home video of American Tune, a song I’ve loved since he first recorded it in 1975.  It’s even more meaningful today.

Extra credit if you recognize the Bach Chorale on which the melody is based.  Extra extra credit for knowing the title in German 🙂
Stay well, stay safe,
Mike
