Music Download: “The Tender Mercies of the Lord”

The New Era has posted a new music download titled “The Tender Mercies of the Lord.” Both the vocals and accompaniment are performed well, and it has a nice, simple message about recognizing the Lord’s tender mercies in our lives. There is also a piano-only version on the New Era‘s Music Downloads page, and the sheet music is available in the March 2009 issue of the magazine.

New Era Music Download: “Grandpa”

The New Era has added another music download on its Web site. This one is a recording by a group of siblings featured in the January issue. This family apparently allowed the New Era to post the song as a free download, though it is also available commercially. It has an interesting piano line, as well as a nice, sentimental message about the love of a grandpa.

New Era Christmas Music Download: “Little Baby”

The New Era has made available an MP3 download of the Christmas song “Little Baby,” which appears as sheet music in the December issue of the New Era. This pretty tune is sung by a young female vocalist on the recording, giving it just the right feeling, I think. An instrumental version is also available for those who want to sing along.

Interactive Hymn Vocabulary Quizzes from the New Era

The New Era has posted an interactive online version of the hymn vocabulary quiz in its November issue, as well as the one from the March issue. So go see if you know what you’ve been singing in church.

Music Download: The Family Is of God

The Friend has posted an MP3 download of a song whose sheet music appears in the magazine this month. “The Family Is of God” can be downloaded at the Friend’s Web site in two versions: with vocals and without vocals. It’s a nice little song with a strong melody and lyrics that teach a good message.

Music Download: Steadfast and Immovable

The New Era home page has posted MP3 recordings of the song whose sheet music appears in the October issue. The song, “Steadfast and Immovable,” can be downloaded in two formats: with vocals and without vocals. It sounds like a hymn and could be used in Sunday meetings or Mutual (especially since it matches this year’s Mutual theme). Having such songs available for download is a good development and, hopefully, will become a regular occurrence.
