GUEST,T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Tune Add: Orientis Partibus (8) Tune Add: ORIENTIS PARTIBUS 04 Feb 00

This is the tune that was inquired after in the "Sir Donkey ?" thread last Christmastime. It is an example of a melody in the mixolydian mode.

The melody is taken from the Episcopal Church's 1916 hymnal, but I have transposed it up a step and set it in the first rhythmic mode. These changes are based on what I know of the manuscript sources, and in effect retrofit the melody to an earlier form than appears in the 1916 hymnal. I've left off the little coda, however.

X: 1
T: Orientis Partibus
C: 13th century French, from The New Hymnal New York, 1916, transposed.
M: 3/4
K: C
L: 1/4
