Sunday selection – I’ll fly away

I don’t know why this kind of music touches me in the way it does. My explanation is that my roots are in Scotland, Ireland and Wales and with those who left their homes to travel to America – many to Appalachia. Both my grandfather and great-grandfather played the fiddle; I don’t know where the musical talent went in my generation. I can sing though, so I guess that’s my instrument, rusty though it is these days!

This rendition is by Joey and Rory Feek, which seems apt, as Joey ‘flew away’ three years ago at the young age of 40. She was a great loss to music and those who knew her.

    I love that song, and I miss that joyful kind of music. I so wish that I had a beautiful voice and could sing and sing. Our RCIA instructor used to tell people that we worship twice when we sing, and we should always sing. If we have a good voice, in appreciation and joy at the gift, and if we don’t even louder because it’s the Lord’s fault we can’t sing. 😀
