Lynn Hymn tune - Resignation (15) RE: Hymn tune - Resignation 18 Jun 02


Resignation and St. Columba are different tunes, though having some marked similarities (same meter, same up-beat, similar contour). I've not heard the tune which the cyberhymnal indicates as Resignation, but I would give it much credence. Your first 'here' (audio clip) and the alto line of the shape-note notation (second 'here') agree. That's your tune, and a dandy one at that. St/ Columba's a mighty nice one too. It would make a fascinating study (well, fascinating to some of us) to look more closely at the similarities and differences between the two tunes.

All the best
