Music from the Psalms
I want to collaborate and share the music that I am bringing from the Psalms of David so that others can work on it as well and add to it, not just with a harp but with different instruments. The files here are in the rough, but I think you can use them to begin to work out some great music. Keep me posted on what you are doing. I think this will be a great journey. NOTE: If you click on the image, it will open as a PDF so that you can print it out to make it easier to use.
First, we need to take a look at the Pythagorean numbers I gleened from Psalm 119 to find the key to which notes each Hebrew letter was connected to and use that note to determine the base of which chord to play.
We’ll start with the Psalms of Ascent. These are actually the chord progressions I used in the recent album I recorded titled “Psalms of Aliyah”. See if you can pick out what I did or come up with your own new approach!
I have also worked on the Song of Moses from Deuteronomy 32. Again, see if you can pick out what I did or come up with your own new approach!
Additionally, as part of the FREE Calming Harp Lessons, I am preparing music that can be downloaded and played here.
