“Liberalism in religion is the doctrine that there is no positive truth in religion, but that one creed is as good as another… It teaches that all are to be tolerated, for all are matters of opinion. Revealed religion is not a truth, but a sentiment and a taste; not an objective fact, not miraculous; and it is the right of each individual to make it say just what strikes his fancy. […] Men may go to Protestant Churches and to Catholic, may get good from both and belong to neither.”
— Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman (May of 1879)

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?
