Subject: Hark the song of Jubilee hymnsing 11/20/11

The fifth Evergreen Hymn-Sing will take place at Fremont Baptist Church, Seattle, the afternoon of November 20th (officially 2 pm, but we may actually start a tad early as we have to get out promptly! the refreshments will precede rather than follow).

This time the focus will be on the songs of two somewhat neglected hymnwriters, F. E. Belden and C. A. Tindley. The former is fairly well represented in the Seventh Day Adventist hymnal, but essentially unknown outside that denominational tradition, while Tindley, though he merits the title of grandfather of black gospel hymnody, is almost unknown outside the black churches and not as well known there as he deserves to be. (IMO, of course.)

We will also feature a number of other songs some of you may like to hear or sing. Here's the tentative songlist:

Be joyful in God (Montgomery; tune from Hesperian Harp)
Together let us sweetly live (I am bound for the land of Canaan)
Hark! the song of jubilee (Montgomery; Syro-Phœnician aka Lebanese tune)

I will sing of Jesus' love (Belden)
We'll build on the rock (Belden)
Lo, what a wondrous sight appears (to a composite tune reminiscent of "Joys Seven")

Jesus shed his blood for me (Korean hymn to Doane tune)
Stand like the brave (Fanny Crosby)
Shout the battle cry (W F Sherwin)

Courage, my soul (Tindley)
The great storm is over
Let every lamp be burning bright (Belden)
Give me oil in my lamp

A certain man held a feast
Bruce's offering

O when shall I see Jesus (Morning Trumpet)
When Israel camped in Sinai (to Webb)
God who is Father, Mother (to National Hymn)
Where shall I be? (C P Jones)

You who fed us quail and manna
A better day is coming (Tindley)
Heaven's Christmas Tree (Tindley)
Pisgah Medley

There is a land that is free (Tindley)
Belovèd, be faithful
Sqwah-tee-nee-she-sdee, Yee-ho-wah (Cherokee; Cwm Rhondda)
Christ, the Lord, all power possessing (Cwm Rhondda)

I'll write some more on some of these in the next few days. I'm particularly interested in what I can learn of the tune for "Lo, what a glorious sight appears" (#446 in the 1985 Seventh-Day Adventist Hymnal).

Any hymn-loving Mudcatters in the Seattle area are cordially invited to attend. Admission is free; a freewill offering will be taken to benefit several worthy causes.

I'm experimenting with throwing the tunes on the wall this time, at least for tunes not well-known in my church circles. See this partial/tentative PDF of the Powerpoint. Look at it and let me know what you think.

PDF of the slideshow. Wish you were there. ;-) It was great fun, and we raised about $200 for homeless ministries, Burma refugee resettlement, and an eye clinic in Haiti.
