Thread Name: British Grenadiers-why is tune called Sheffield?
Subject: RE: British Grenadiers-why is tune called Sheffield?
Here is the George F. Root tune called SHEFFIELD, obviously completely unrelated to "British Grenadiers".
I don't have a copy of Diehl's Index, and in the hymnary.org database the oldest instance of the name SHEFFIELD with the Brit Gren tune is from the 1941 Northern Baptist/Disciples of Christ Christian Worship. FWIW.
