New Old Hymnals

Over a month ago I sent $35 to some guy in North Carolina who promised over 20 hymnals and songbooks in return. He cashed the check weeks ago. Nothing happened, and I was beginning to think I'd been snookered. I even sent him email just last night asking when I might expect to receive them. And then today they came. 24 new items for my hymnal collection (plus four that I already had). I have listed them at the Hymn Society's discussion page: In Low-Key Hymnal Heaven. Several of them are even recent shapenote publications, from Cumberland Valley. Seven-shape, of course; fasola would be too much to hope for.

And now off to church to sing in the Sounds of Christmas 2007 concert.
