Two songs in memory of my great grandmothers

I like both of these songs, which I'd never heard before.

Dymphna, did your grandmothers sing these songs? The first one - "He Never Said a-Mumberlin' Word" - about the Crucifixion - is especially beautiful.

Both my great grandmothers sang in church, I don't know about the Jezebel song but He Never Said a Mumbling World was a popular standard throughout the South so they probably sang this one.

Do you ever have masses said for them or other relatives who've passed?


God Bless you Dymphna and thank you for sharing this memory.
