‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name,’ the Old-Fashioned Way

This is a genuine Edison Amberol wax cylinder, played on an archaic machine called an Amberola. The hymn is All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, sung by the Metropolitan Quartet…possibly a hundred years ago.

It’s gently snowing outside this morning, a pure white blanket drawn over the mudscape, not enough to cause a problem: rejoice in God’s handiwork. And let us rejoice in our fellowship in Jesus Christ.

  1. Well, this is quite something! This machine looks like the prototype of a record player – with a cylinder record instead of a disk. I’ve never seen one, but the fact that it still works and the song still plays is surprising. You’d think the wax would’ve worn out. Thank you for the hymn, Lee, and for the bit of history!
