Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Now For Something Completely Different: Hang Drum Uke Duet

Over the Christmas break I was surfing utube music videos (which at times can be a perilous thing to do) and came upon this instrument called a hangdrum. It is newly invented percussion/melody instrument made in Sweden. The sound was mesmerizing and for a brief second thought it would be great to own one. It turns out that they are over 2000 dollars and you need to fly to Sweden to buy one and there is a waiting list a mile long. Enough said, I opened up my iPhone, searched the app store and found one and downloaded it for 99 cents!

So here's a song I wrote and recorded combining the hang drum iPhone app with my grandmother's 1917 Martin soprano ukulele. I thought they went together well, something old and something new etc... I call it Uke Hang Opus No. 3
