Psaltery Music for Make Me A Channel of Your Peace.

Posted on September 24, 2012 at 9:12am 3 Comments

I have been listening to a CD by Susan Boyle and she sings the beautiful song, Make Me A Channel of Your Peace.  Does anyone have psaltery tab for that song?  Would love to have it.  Thanks.

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

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!
