    Your Favourite Hymn?

    Has this one been done before

    I don't see a thread anywhere, which is somewhat surprising, but if not then I'd like to know if anyone has a favourite hymn?

    This is a serious question BTW, and not some weird form of Pagan humour I think hymns are a major 'selling point' for Christianity because nothing inspires quite like a good tune and IMO there's an abundance of these, even though I can't always identify with the lyrics

    So, suggestions welcome ...

    Kaiserhymne


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gott_erhalte_Franz_den_Kaiser

    Joseph Haydn seems to have been particularly fond of his creation. During his frail and sickly old age (1802–1809), the composer often would struggle to the piano to play his song, often with great feeling, as a form of consolation; and as his servant Johann Elssler narrated, it was the last music Haydn ever played:
    The Kayser Lied was still played three times a day, though, but on May 26th [1809] at half-past midday the Song was played for the last time and that 3 times over, with such expression and taste, well! that our good Papa was astonished about it himself and said he hadn't played the Song like that for a long time and was very pleased about it and felt well altogether till evening at 5 o'clock then our good Papa began to lament that he didn't feel well...
    Elssler goes on to narrate the composer's final decline and death, which occurred on May 31.
    This music has also been adapted for the Anglican hymnal with traditional Christian hymn lyrics:

    Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken


    It might have been adapted for something else, too..

    Oh, yes...

    Deutschlandlied

    Whichever one it is that the greek orthodox sing that begins "Φωτίζου, φωτίζου" or alternatively the version of Meet it is in English sung by the Valaam Brotherhood Choir.

    Alternatively basically anything by Thomas Tallis.

    EDIT: Sorry, already been said (I hadn't noticed you'd since added a bit more to your previous post, Huginn).

    However, I did find the following comment about "Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken" on YouTube ...

    The tune was originally a Croatian folk song, which went "Stal se jesem vjutro ranmo, rano pred zorjom" or "Vjutro se ja rano stanem, ravno pred zorjom". Haydn then adapted it for his Kaiserhymne which went "Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser, unsern guten Kaiser Franz" which then became the national anthem of Austrian Empire. Then Hoffman wrote the Deutschlandlied lyrics to the tune.

    No problem

    The Croatian song sounds a lot different. Haydn seems to have used the first stanza, changed it up a bit, and elaborated upon it considerably:

    Croatian song


    I like Haydn's version much better.

    Yes, it's amazing what you discover about some songs once you start to delve into their origins.

    Slightly OT I know, but I only recently discovered that "Those Were The Days" by Mary Hopkin had begun life as a Russian folk song

    I cannot help crying when I hear this song. I think it is so very beautiful and moving.

    We were praising Aphrodite, as she stood there in her nightie,
    Though she's wild and kind of flighty, she's good enough for me.
    Give me that, Olde Tyme Religion,
    Give me that, Olde Tyme Religion,
    Give me that, Olde Tyme Religion,
    It's good enough for me.

    Have a NS day.
