Does anyone have a copy of this who could confirm the first phrase or so for me? Trying to track down a version and not sure if this is the right one.
Really sorry I can't help you there and it seems nobody else can. I sang it as a boy treble some err.......60 years ago!, but I can't remember the first phrase. I remember liking the piece though I don't think you would call it a gem of Anglican musical heritage. Nice, steady, middle of the road stuff.
Hey, what's wrong with motr
I'm reliving my youth here - it's only 37 years since I sang it as a girl treble!
Can I see if this rings any bells? I'm assuming it started on C above middle C, I will use > to indicate the next note is lower, < higher, = the same. (yes I know there are conventions and I can't remember them to save my life! My husband has got a good shorthand for this but only he knows it!)
C (dotted minim)> G (crotchet)> C (minim) < D (minim) < E(cr) < G(cr) < A(cr)< C(cr) < D (m)> G(m)
rest(cr) <E(m)> D(cr)> C(m)= C(m)< F(m) >D(m)> B(semibreve)
