Again, Paul, I'll bring enough cash to purchase your CD and Mark's CD at Antietam.

It's always great to hear these things with accompaniment. Much more accurate reflections of how they were originally done. Good job!

Great job, Paul.  I was going to also say what Mark said a few minutes ago.

Thanks.  You'll notice the melody here (the Rice version) is a little different than the melody in Howe's Glee Book, but the lyrics fit.

How did I miss this?

It's fabulous.

Paul, you have CD? I didn't know.
Comment by Al Smitley on August 24, 2015 at 6:59pm

Sorry Paul.  I was merely egging him on, along with Mark.  As far as I know, Paul does not YET have a CD.

When he does, I'll purchase one!

Ooops!  I mean sorry Richard, for giving you an erroneous impression.

Comment by Richard Katz on August 24, 2015 at 8:20pm
No problem. Just disappointed Paul doesn't have CD.
