Subject: RE: REQ: Babylon is Fallen (to Rise no More)
Babylon Is Fallen may have been in an early edition of the Original Sacred Harp, but was removed, and only reinstituted in the latest (1991) edition of the book, p. 117, where the tune, or at least arrangement, is attributed to W.E. Chute, 1878. But a shape note harmony version of it has been in The Christian Harmony for years, which is where I first encountered the shape note harmonization of it in print.
