Godspeed!

February 16, 2013

In 1962, John Glenn made history as the first American to orbit the Earth. As the rocket ascended, ground control said, “Godspeed, John Glenn.” “Godspeed” comes from the expression, “May God prosper you.”

Though we don’t often hear this word today, the apostle John used it in his second epistle: “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Godspeed” (2 John 1:10 kjv).

John has been referred to as “the apostle of love,” so why would he warn believers against pronouncing a blessing on others? Traveling evangelists were dependent on the hospitality of Christians to provide them with room and board. John was telling the believers that biblical truth is important. If itinerant missionaries were not preaching doctrine consistent with apostolic teaching, believers were not to bless their work by providing lodging or financial assistance.

This is also true for believers today. We are to treat everyone with kindness because God is kind to us. But when asked to financially support an endeavor, it’s important to always ask Him for wisdom. The Spirit who guides us into truth (John 16:13) will show us when it is appropriate to bid Godspeed to those we encounter.

Dear Lord, You know my heart. I love You
and want Your kingdom to prosper.
Give me Your wisdom to know where You want
me to take part and how. Thank You.
God’s Spirit through His Word gives wisdom to discern truth from error.

Read: 2 John 1:1-11

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him. —2 John 1:10
Bible in a Year:
Leviticus 19-20; Matthew 27:51-66

STEPHEN FOSTER: AMERICA’S FIRST SONGWRITER

The Fourth of July 1826 was a red letter day for America. It was the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died that day at ripe old ages, although thanks to the primitive communications of the era, neither man knew of the other’s demise. And on that day Stephen Foster was born in Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania, just east of Pittsburgh, as the last surviving infant of a large family.

In an era before widespread public schooling, Stephen received private tutoring and went to private schools in the region. He hated it. But music was the one thing that excited his imagination, and his musical training from a German immigrant was thorough. It was music that led to Stephen’s avid reading, and he became a literate man by the standards of his era.

Stephen had as his friends sons of some of the best families in Pittsburgh. He founded an all-male club, the Knights of the Square Table, which met in the Foster home, where he acted as a song leader and then composer. His first works came from this little gathering of friends.

In 1844, at the age of 18, Stephen had one of his songs, written for the Knights, published in Philadelphia. Thomas Hampson is one of our great operatic baritones, and he has made a specialty of Foster’s music, which is finally being taken seriously.

Foster: “Open Thy Lattice, Love”

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

“The Empty Chair”

By Captain Carroll “Lex” Lefon, USN (ret), on December 21st, 2004

“In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture.The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER.”

Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding The Narrative Of “The Empty Chair.”

What does an amateur songwriter do in an era before copyright protection? He finds a straight job. In 1847, at age 21, Stephen Foster went to work as a bookkeeper at his brother’s steamship company in Cincinnati, down the Ohio River from Pittsburgh. He put quill pen to hemp paper and turned out another hit. This is where Foster, who had not yet been very far south of the Ohio, turned to writing songs about the South. Tom Roush puts his touch to this classic.

Foster: “Lou’siana Belle”

The 22 year old Stephen Foster should have rung the cash register. In 1848, a song he had written for the Square Table became a national hit following its performance by the Christy Minstrels. Several dozen publishing firms pirated the song and made a fortune in sheet music sales. Foster merely got $100 from a small firm in Cincinnati.

Foster: “Oh! Susanna”

”Oh! Susanna” was a hit, but you never would have known it from the contents of Foster’s wallet. He had been burned badly, but he learned two important lessons from the experience: (1) he could write successful songs, and (2) he needed to protect his artistic property.

Foster understood that the minstrel shows of the era were the way to gain an audience for his songs, but he decided to humanize the people in his songs and convey a sense that everyone shared the same needs, free or slave. He told the performers of his songs not to make fun of slaves, but to get their audiences to feel compassion for them. Foster was the reforming figure of the minstrel movement in American entertainment. Some of this came from the fact that Pittsburgh was a center for abolitionism in Pennsylvania, and one of Pittsburgh’s great abolitionist figures, Charles Shiras, was a boyhood friend of Foster’s.

In 1849, the 23 year old Stephen Foster wrote another hit while working in Cincinnati at the steamship company. This song is told from the perspective of the slave, and it’s a real heartbreaker.

Foster: “Nelly Was a Lady”

The Robert Shaw Chorale recorded an album of Foster songs in 1958, and it sold well.

“Dolcy Jones”

At the end of 1849, Foster quit his job in Cincinnati, returned to Pittsburgh, and signed a contract with a New York publisher, beginning his professional life as a songwriter.

I really like Stephen Foster’s Songs.

My students like them too.

I tell them that in Foster’s day, there were NO iPads, iPods, Nanos, MP3 Players, cd’s, videos, or even Cassettes or RECORDS. Everybody had a piano in the Parlor, and if you wanted to hear a Stephen foster song, you could play it on the piano.

Which meant you HAD to be able to READ Sheet Music!

While almost everybody had a piano in the parlor, almost every family also had someone who could play fiddle. Most churches had someone who could play the pump organ. Most towns had amateur brass bands. Many towns had fiddlers, banjo pickers and others who could play dances. This was a very musical country.

In 1850, Stephen Foster turned 24, and he began turning out one song after another. This one is humorous.

Foster: “Oh! Lemuel!”

This is one of his most famous tunes. It turned up in countless TV westerns in the Fifties.

”Nelly Bly”

You can’t help but dance to this one.

”Dolly Day”

This is synonymous with Foster and is a critical part of American song.

”De Camptown Races”

Catchy!

”Angelina Baker”

A good example of the slow, sentimental songs of the era. That’s Jay Ungar of “Ashokan Farewell” on fiddle.

”Ah! May the Red Rose Live Always!”

Dance away!

”Way Down in Ca-i-ro”

Simply beautiful!

”The Voice of Bygone Days”

With successful songs like this under his belt, Foster felt prosperous enough to marry Jane MacDowell in 1850. Their daughter was born a year later.

Indeed!

The syncopation and melodies that Foster employed showed admiration and affection for emerging Black musical forms. During the 1960’s, there were those who decried Stephen Foster’s songs as racist, but they were not. Even though some of the language seemed pejorative by late Twentieth Century standards, they were NOT racist terms in the early 19th century. Foster’s lyrics never mocked or demeaned Black people. The lyrics were mostly about home, family, poverty, nostalgia, elderly people, love, and humor.

I especially like the funny oxymorons in “Oh! Susanna”. My students do too. They get the humor, where perhaps their parents do not.

“Political Correctness” can take a lot of joy out of life!

We will encounter quite a bit of the challenge of political correctness in the next few segments.

In 1851, Stephen Foster wrote a large number of tunes that still survive. One of the problems of Foster’s career was that during his lifetime, most of his songs were considered folk music, and few knew that he was the composer. This stemmed from the fact that Foster, unlike Louis Moreau Gottschalk, was not a performer and thus did not publicize his own music. Even today most people who hear a Foster tune have no idea that he wrote it.

The second problem was financial. Foster, like Irving Berlin a century later, counted every nickel and knew where it went. After having “Oh! Susanna” pirated out from under him, he took great care to make sure that the royalties from the sales of his sheet music went to his bank account, not somebody else’s. That of course assumed the honesty of his publishers in a rough business. He made nothing from performing rights. Foster insisted on his own handwritten contracts with his publishers, and they are the earliest known contracts between publishers and individual songwriters in America.

This tune is best known for Irish tenor John McCormack’s 1934 performance. As a student of Schubert’s songs, I can’t help but notice that the piano accompaniment sounds a lot like his classic song “Alinde”. That German music teacher was thorough!

Foster: “Sweetly She Sleeps, My Alice Fair”

Political correctness has kept this one under wraps in the modern era, which is why the melody is often heard, but not the lyrics. It’s a great toe-tapper.

”Ring, Ring de Banjo!”

Beautiful and contemplative. This is one from the heart.

”Laura Lee”

This is the song with its original, politically incorrect lyrics. It was not a hit during Foster’s lifetime, but became popular in the early 20th Century. It’s now his most popular tune and the Florida state song.

”Old Folks at Home”

A fine song, beautifully sung.

”In the Eye Abides the Heart”

This is another one of his plantation songs.

”Farewell My Lilly Dear”
