Chris in Portland Sankey and Moody hymns (22) RE: Sankey and Moody hymns 14 Sep 11

There may be some of you folks in Wales (or elsewhere), besides me, who are interested in the Welsh versions of these hymns. Sian Thomas of trac helped me get in touch with the person in Cardiff who is the expert on this. I'll be meeting with him when we go to Wales next month. There are at least 3 old hymnals that have hymns from this period - Ieuan Gwyllt's Swn y Juwbili, Watcyn Wyn's Odlau'r Efengyl and Parry's Telyn Sankey [Sankey's Harp]. Moody, Sankey and others were involved in a number of great revivals in the US, Wales and elsewhere in the decades around 1900.

Read Stead's If Christ Came to Chicago, to see what they were up against. Stead might have accomplished great things for Chicago if his travel agent had not booked him on the Titanic! As it is, still pretty much the same.

If anyone is interested in the Welsh versions of these great old hymns, please pm me.
Diolch, Chris
