Okeimockbird What does 'modal' really mean? (66* d) RE: What does 'modal' really mean? 16 Jan 00

Mary in Kentucky, the SH version of Wondrous Love is here, but I was wrong about its mode. It is written in G-minor, with e-flat, rather than in G-dorian, with e-natural. Modern arrangers have modified it to dorian (or dorian-influenced hexatonic, if you prefer), however, e.g. Hymns III, Church Hymnal Corporation, New York, 1979, Hymn 245b, and this is how I am accustomed to singing it.
