New on the pOddcast today, a special hymn written by Orin for the upcoming baptism of the newest Cerneka, Aiden Joseph. You can view the melody and words by clicking on the left there, or even download the whole score here (at least for now).
To listen, find the gcast window in the sidebar on the blog, just down a little ways on the left, or find the pOddcast on iTunes here. It’s a quick GarageBand demo (I know, surprise, surprise) made at Orin’s “home office” or, sometimes, “Oddwalk Headquarters – East Campus.”
The song is based on the familiar Prayer of St. Francis as well as part of the epistle reading for the Sunday of the baptism, 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. The melody reflects the Irish of Aiden’s name – it is a melody known as “The Maids of the Mourne Shore” and perhaps better known as “The Salley Gardens.”
And, we couldn’t help but add to this post this darling photo of Madeleine and Aiden, napping together.
