Tune Information
Composer: Louis Bourgeois, ca. 1510-1561 (1551)
Key: G Major
Notes: Although this tune from the Genevan Psalter is probably the most sung church melody throughout the world, it was in fact not composed for Ps. 100 but rather for Ps. 134. (See 100C for the original tune for Ps. 100 from the Genevan Psalter.) The 16th-Century text by William Kethe (with modern spelling) is perhaps the oldest English psalm versification that continues to be sung today. For an updated version of Kethe’s text, see 100B. Guitar chords do not correspond with keyboard harmony.
