History of all our songbooks from before I was even born til now..jpg

History of all our songbooks from before I was even born til now.
I remember the brown one, then the Sing to Jehovah one with the painting of the people singing.  Soon  we  get  the  nice  in  silver,  looking  like  our  Bible.  My  first  book  was  the  brown  one...

And does anyone else remember, when we used to have the live piano player at the Kingdom Hall ?  I remember, we had a live piano player at our congregation still  before  one  year,  also  some  sisters  with  different  instruments ;-)

Sorry  for  the  poor  Congregations,  which  not  have  enough  money  for  the  modern  music - technique  etc.  ( But  our  Org. is  of  sure  helping )

I remember the old Pink 1 and that green and yellow 1 but I'm not sure which was in use in 63. Way too long ago now. I do remember the piano players too. We had several sisters that could play.

Thanks  for  your  nice  little  report,  brother  Carol  Knapp  ;-)

I was baptized before the red one (1942) but I have the red one, published in 1944, on my piano now. I played at the KH for years, starting very young since I  was taking piano lessons.  While I do enjoy the wonderful arrangements now in use, I do miss the "local flavor" of the past pianists. 

I will miss the song "Flee to the Kingdom" which was song #45 in the red song book

As a child we used the pink one and song 110 was always my favourite one.  I was baptisten in 1979, and I don't  remenber if we used the brown one by then. What i do remember is that it was raining so hard during the talk that i could not hear half of what the brother told because of the sound of raindrops on my umbrella.

I also miss the "local flavor" of all which played to the Kingdom songs !  But we must obey the GB Brothers, no other way....
