I decided to go ahead and post the hymns and folk songs we will be learning this fall. I opted to take a different route with folk songs by choosing songs in Spanish! We might as well incorporate our foreign language studies in as many places as possible, right? I know some people think, “Hymns? Really?” But in all honesty, this is one my kids’ favorite parts of our day! They love learning the new songs. It always surprises me too. I guess you can never underestimate the need for a spiritual/transcendent connection through music.
I just discovered this song recently while cruising around on youtube. I had planned to use “De Colores” first, but this one will be perfect for October with Halloween and Dia de los Muertos right after. So I think at the moment!
“Be Thou My Vision” (So beautiful!)
Yes, I do favor Joan Baez! Her voice is amazing!
