Greetings, fellow hymnists.
I'm wondering if anyone here knows the original piece where "Almighty Father, Hear our Prayer" came from.
I have looked at all scores composed by Mendelssohn that were written in 1846 that I could obtain, But I have not found one single piece that has anything sounding similar to that hymn!!!
A few thoughts are in my head concerning this:
This is driving me nuts, I am in urgent need of help on this!!!
If no proof exsists, I just simply can not credit him as the composer of that piece.
As a person who plans to publish hymnals in the future, It is important that the information is as accurate as possible.
