My dad just borrowed this CD from a friend of his. It's a compilation of a bunch of really old hymns sung the way they were sung when they first came out. It's a real testament to how much we've mangled them over the years, most of those were never meant to be played on an organ....actually, change that to none of them since organs weren't even invented yet, lol. Unfortunately, they don't sell it here, you can only buy it in England. :( Has anyone ever heard this CD before?

What do you mean organs weren't invented yet? Organs have been around since before most hymns used today were written. They've evolved a bit, of course, but they've been around for quite some time.

But personally, I prefer a capella singing of hymns :)

And unfortunately, I don't know where you could get the CD :(

Hmm....that's what my dad told me, but I guess he could be wrong. ;) My dad's going to see if he can order it, or get one of his many English relatives or friends to send it over. In the meantime, we can still keep the CD for another week. :)
