How can I get sheet music to some of the songs I am hearing on this site.  For instance, Beulah Land?

It's been since February since you posted this but if you are still looking I have Sweet Beulah land sheet music in the key of D if you are still looking for it. I can email a pdf version to you from
Thanks for responding. I would very much appreciate receiving the sheet music for this song.
It looks like the site will allow pdf attachments, so here is my attempt to attach Sweet Beulah Land.
Thanks for the sheet music. I was able to open and print it and appreciate your taking the time to get it to me.
I sent a pdf file to your email and the file is attached on this website on a reply to Terry earlier in this thread. I can email the file to others also upon request.

I searched for some background on the word Beulah. I have seen it as the name for many people I have met but I've also noticed it on some churches and cemeteries. I thought since it was such a common biblical word, it must have been the name of somebody famous in the bible. Further research showed that the word Beulah exists once in the bible (you have to have an old bible) and the nearest translation appears to be that it is an adjective that means married. Since I was expecting to find it used as a person's name and there may be some uncertainty or lost meaning in the translation, Beulah is a word that for me still has some wonder and mystery.

To all,
I was researching Beulah Land also and came upon this website. Seems it is a name symbolically applied to Israel. A scripture is sited Isaiah 62:4.
Thanks Sue
I left the Isaiah part out on purpose to see if any one would ask for the book and chapter. Thanks for looking and finding a url that provides more information. Some time ago I found myself on a bible website and found the site had search functions, so I searched for the word Beulah. I had to define the correct bible in the search criteria before Beulah could be found. Many of the new bibles use the word married or some other phrase. It's just one of those things that makes me think!!
Dave, Im sorry if I spoke out of turn regarding the bible verse. I was so excited when I found some information about it. I am also eagerly awaiting more sound clips from Rick Long. Then I will be choosing my tenor psaltery! Im like a little kid on Christmas morning!
I was wondering how long I should leave it open without an answer, so I'm glad you found it and made it known. It worked for you as I intended it to work in that it appears you had fun searching for it.

Thanks for the information regarding sheet music. I really appreciate it as we are always looking for different music to play.
Don't know if this has been posted before, but here's another site with free sheet music, also in PDF format to print out. Includes audio too:
Thanks! Some more great music!

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!
