Song and hymn requests - March 2018


Time fairly flies!   I had hoped to publish this newsletter in January, in the lead up to Brigid of Kildare's famous arrival with the spring on 1 February.

However various events have got in the way, including the coldest March day on record in Ireland:  There was certainly plenty of snow, spring - perhaps not yet!

Some technical issues with the website have taken time to resolve, you may have noticed that instead of a popular-posts list in the sidebar there is now a brand new Popular Posts page which is updated manually every fortnight, and also an automatically updates What's New page listing the most-recently published material here.  Keep an eye on this if you want to see what what hymns, books and other resources have been added to the website lately.

I've also been doing some fairly intensive work on a new project about the Sacred Heart, and hope to announce more about that in the next newsletter.  If you have any  particular favourite Sacred Heart hymns that you would like researched, then this would be a an excellent time to request them.

For now, hymns about St Patrick and St Joseph are popular, as well as hymns for Lent and Easter. Other hymns and songs that have been requested in the last few months are ...


Hymn and song research requests since the last newsletter

Information about this song is available here.

Angels we Have Heard on High - with tonic solfa

Someone was looking for the tonic solfa notation for this Christmas carol. Unfortunately it's been very difficult to find, not least because a version of it was was released by a group called Tonic Sol-fa in 2010! If you know where to find such notation, please leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.

Anima Christi

This was an interesting reuqest. It may refer to the orginal Latin prayer - information about this is available here. Or it may be for the hymn Soul of my Saviour, which was the first widely popular English translation of the original text - and which is set to a tune called ANIMA CHRISTI. And just to be really confusing, there are a number of other English-language hymns which have been given the title Anima Christi.

If you are looking for one of the latter, please request again giving some more details of the particular hymn that you're interested in.

Baker Woman

Information about this song about Mary is available here.

Bethlehem Of mobiles contributes

I'm guessing that this request was subject to some helpful auto-completion - and most likely was for Bethlehem of Noblest Cities - information about this is now available here. If that's not right, please try again.

Peace I Leave with You

This request is for a very specific song which is based on John 14:27, has a 4/4 time signature and these lyrics:
Peace I leave with you My peace I give unto you
Not as the world give th give I unto you
Let not your heart be troubled Neither let it be afraid
Peace I leave with you My peace I give unto you
One option seems to be this arrangement by Walter L Pelz. I am not sure, though, if it's the correct one though, because this text has been used for a lot of hymns.

If you have suggestions about other popular hymns which have these lyrics, please leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.

Spirit of God in the Clear Running Water

This request is from someone with an emergency need for the sheet music for this well-known song by Miriam Therese Winter. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any source for this, apart from the book referred to in the song information page - and copyright law means that I cannot simply make a copy of it and share it with you.

Symphony of Praise

This request included the title, Symphony of Praise, and also some lyrics.
Like an old violin with it's bow badly bent I lay silently gathering dust. From a pile of debris God's hand lifted me.

I've found the words for Steve Green's Symphony of Praise here - but they are quite different to what was quoted.

Are you looking for a hymn or song?

Are you searching for the words or sheet music for a particular song or hymn - especially from the last 50 or so years?

The Hymn Finder tool is your first port of call.   It is a customized search tool, which lets you search for any words from the hymn - and looks for them in a set of websites that are known to contain hymns.    This means that you get results which are hymns - instead of sermons and newsletters which just contain snippets, or pages about totally different topics which just happen to contain those words.

If this doesn't help, then submit a request using the hymn research request tool, and it will be responded to in next month's newsletter.
