Hi,
Anyone into Sankey and Moody hymns? I'm looking to obtain a recording of one particular hymn called 'I have given up all for Jesus'. This was apparently my grandfather's favourite and I'd like to get it for my mother,
Bob

This takes me back! I was brought up on Sankey hymns - with my dad playing the piano in a corner of the lounge, and everyone joining in the singing. Firm Friends do some of these hymns, I'm sure.

I think you need to look for "When the Pearly Gates unfold"
'Though my friends despise, forsake me, and on me the world looks cold, theres a friend who will stand by me when the pearly gates unfold'

Hi, Dave-
Ira D. Sankey (1840-1908) was one of the best-known U.S. hymn writers of the 19th century. He was associated with evangelist Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899), founder of the Moody Bible Institute and Moody Church in Chicago. Sankey and Moody worked together (Moody preaching and Sankey singing), and they published books of Christian hymns together. This link will take you to some of Sankey's compositions.

Moody wasn't a composer, so I question the thread title a bit. Sankey fairly prolific, collaborating on hymns with a number of people; but I can't name a single well-known hymn that came from his pen. Sankey's book, Sacred Songs and Solos (which contained only one song written by Sankey), became known as Sankey and Moody's Songs. You can listen to a selection of Moody and Sankey hymns here (click). Click here for Sankey's Gospel Hymns No. 6 (1891). Click here for Sankey's sacred Songs No. 2 (1899). Oh, and Click Here for a combined collection, Gospel Hymns, Vol. 1-6 (1895).

A far more prolific and well-known U.S. hymn composer of the 19th century was Fanny Crosby (1820-1915). Ms. Crosby, who was blind, composed "Blessed Assurance" and other well-known songs.

There may be some of you folks in Wales (or elsewhere), besides me, who are interested in the Welsh versions of these hymns. Sian Thomas of trac helped me get in touch with the person in Cardiff who is the expert on this. I'll be meeting with him when we go to Wales next month. There are at least 3 old hymnals that have hymns from this period - Ieuan Gwyllt's Swn y Juwbili, Watcyn Wyn's Odlau'r Efengyl and Parry's Telyn Sankey [Sankey's Harp]. Moody, Sankey and others were involved in a number of great revivals in the US, Wales and elsewhere in the decades around 1900.

Read Stead's If Christ Came to Chicago, to see what they were up against. Stead might have accomplished great things for Chicago if his travel agent had not booked him on the Titanic! As it is, still pretty much the same.

If anyone is interested in the Welsh versions of these great old hymns, please pm me.
Diolch, Chris

A Google search on "hymnals tonic sofa" turns up quite a few. At the very least, that should help you filter out the paper copies you really need to find!

This one isn't in sol-fa notation, but the "Open Hymnal" looks like it could be a valuable resource:

The Sankey hymns were popular in East Coast (GB) fishing towns/villages as well as in Primitive Methodist churches in mining communities.

The Filey. Marske. Seahouses and Cullercoats fisher choirs certainly included them in their repertoires. Two Sankey hymns also 'double' as   Dungworth Christmas carols.

The Cullercoats choir last performed their services of song comprising Sankey hymns as late as 1966. I'm researching the Cullercoats tradition, and looking to revive the choir on a secular-ish basis if possible. Any takers in the Newcastle area?

Another hymn, written by Horatius Bonar, for which Sankey wrote the tune, is 'Only Remembered', which he sang at the funeral of CH Spurgeon, the Baptist minister. It is now better remembered in the version John Tams rewrote for 'Warhorse'. Interestingly it has been rejected by Baptists as emphasising salvation by works.

Yes, the Prims had all the best hymns, which is probably why my Grandpa disliked them, as he was a staunch Wesleyan.

For a couple of years (1961-63) we lived in Newmains, centre of the North Lanarkshire coalfield and birthplace of the iron and steel industry in Central Scotland. We lived next door to Coltness Memorial Church (Church of Scotland) whose weekly evening services were occasionally replaced by "Moody and Sankey" evenings, when the usual psalms and hymns from the Church Hymnal would be replaced by the works of the American evangelists, whose popularity seems to have remained undimmed for nearly a hundred years.

This article describes their tour of Britain and Ireland and their very positive reception.

Hi Ross, I have done some family history research, on my wife's family as well as my own. My wife's great-grandfather lived in Shotts, not so very far from Newmains, in the early 1870s. He and two of his brothers attended a Moody and Sankey revival meeting at this time. It changed the course of the family completely, all three became city missionaries, one brother in Glasgow, my wife's great-grandfather and the other brother in Sydney. And from their writings I know that they remained very fond of the Sankey hymnbook (which I take to be "Sacred Songs and Solos").
