-- Have I heard Glad's version of Be Thou My Vision? Yes, when I told our worship leader I wished this song was in our hymnal, first he was surprised that it isn't, he thought it was ... then he remembered it's in the hymnal where his grandmother attends church. Anyway, then he asked if I'd ever heard Glad sing it. I hadn't at the time. But I found an MP3 online and listened to it. Please don't anybody stone me :0 but I didn't care for it. I know a lot of people like it, and that's fine, but it's not my cup of tea. I love a capella (even though I'm never sure I'm spelling it right, LOL), it's just I don't like all the vocal add-ons Glad does to it - not sure what the musical terminology is. I'd rather listen to Fernando Ortega's version over Glad's any day. Again, this isn't a right or wrong thing, it's just personal preference, and I'm thrilled that so many people are blessed by Glad's rendition of this wonderful hymn. I'd heard of Glad before but barely know who they are. I guess I'm just not a very good church of Christ'er.
I'm thinking of changing my username here to something ... um, shorter. LOL So I think I'll drop Lee a private note, see about zapping this username, and I'll come up with a new, way less-than-32-characters-long one. :p
Peace & Love,
