Hi Rob,

Don't have MP, but would suggest some general, after Trinity hymns. I don't know what service it is, or your tradition, but, how about:

Christ Triumphant to start - a good strong tune (Guiting Power)
Gradual - if it's a Eucharist - something contemplative - what about 'Be still'
Offertory - a longish, strong hymn - 'Alleluia, sing to Jesus' to Hyfrydol, a good Welsh tune.
Communion - if it is -Sweet Sacrament divine'
Post-Communion - another strong one to send them out happy -Ye holy angels bright (as it was the feast of St Peter & St Paul on Thursday last)

Just some suggestions

Regards,

Nigel

I've always loved the simplicity of this one, if it's the one I think it is. It lends itself to acapella and close impromptu harmony (imho anyway). But I love small group harmonies anyway Smile

Hyfrydol with any words - English or Welsh - is really great. Mind you I am biassed, as I think there was never an original Welsh hymn tune that wasn't great.

After all it's only the "Land of Song" that could create a Male Voice Choir item about a "Little Saucepan" (Sospan Fach), isn't it? lolol

Gee it would be years since I sang or heard that one. Mind you we do have a good even mix of hymns with what we call "chorusses" (pedantically I suppose I should write chorus' Very Happy )


Now a request from me, maybe I should do it as another thread.

I'm wondering if anyone has a recording of just the organ (accompaniment) for "And as Moses Lifted up the Serpent" and "God So Loved the World" from Sir John Stainer's Crucifixion?.

I have the sheet music, but we don't have an organ in our very small congergation, just a piano, and my pastor has asked me to present this as a solo item (which is easily done with a two semitone transposition to suit my voice).

It doesn't sound right with a paino imho

I don't need it transposed, though; I can do that electronically.


And Nigel I love your signature in dog-Latin; reminds me of when I was in the RAF Smile ... per ardua ad asbestos I think was another one of them. Certainly the b******s grinding us down was quite appropriate Smile

Rob,

How did your service go? And did you ever locate the Gordon Young?

Cheers,
Jason

You're not biased at all: just spot on! And for another great Welsh tune you can add Ar Hyd y Nos. A particular favourite of mine. There is a hymn thread on The Organ Forum -which Nigel has contributed to- and I totally forgot to mention this one.

Cheers Richard, thanks for your great post.

Good afternoon, one and all,

Firstly, Rob, how did your service go today - were any of those suggestions of any use?

And Richard,

Thanks for your post. Glad you liked Hyfrydol (or Hydrofoil as the choir call it Rolling Eyes )

I've got recordings of a choir singing the Stainer, but not of just the accompaniment. Would it be possible for you to record it on a local organ - using Minidisc or similar, and play that back through a sound system? Or, possible, is a 'backing track' available off the net? May be worth 'Googling' it.

Good luck,

Nigel
