Thread Name: Lyr Req: Hail Glorious St. Patrick
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hail Glorious St. Patrick
Joe didn't give the tune for "Hail, Glorious St. Partrick", because there no extant ancient Irish melodies!

St. Patrick sure knew how to get good press. His missionary work in Ireland was a dismal failure, with only a handfull of converts. I did bring awakening to the Irish that there were other possible religions, and later missionaries had an easier time of it.
