Do You Like This German Hymn Tune?
published 9 August 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

S PART OF the Brébeuf hymnal project, I’ve been looking at numerous melodies and texts. What do you think of this old German hymn tune? Hymns in 3/4 can present problems, but this hymn is not fully in 3/4. Do you agree this tune is pleasant?
