GUEST,Peter a tune called Slane (44) RE: a tune called Slane 23 Jun 16


The different metre is a problem.

When ever I have played the version which omits the extra notes given in the tune of 'Lord of hopefulness' version of slane (so it fits with the words), congregations still try and sing these extra notes because they know the tune of 'Lord of hopefulness' so well and expect the words of 'Be though my vision' to fit.

Unfortunately it usually ends in confusion for those singing unless they have rehearsed. The annoying thing is that everyone thinks it's the organist fault!

The solution is to always use the version of the words for 'Be thou my vision' that fit the exact tune of 'Lord of hopefulness'.
