Missing tune for O for a Thousand Tongues

You are here

I am not sure if this is the place to send a message to the editors, but a tune is missing in the list of tunes for "O for a Thousand Tongues". In the UK, this hymn is strongly associated to "Lyngham" by Thomas Jarman. As it is a fuguing tune, it is difficult to separate the tune from the hymn. It took me a while to find the composer of the tune as there was no link from the hymn.

Thanks in advance if someone would add this into the tune pie chart.


There is a "contact us" link at the bottom of the webpage. You may wish to use it for any suggestions.




Tunes appear in the pie chart according to their incidence in hymnals indexed in the hymnary.  LYNGHAM does appear in the Tune Results, but having relatively few instances it does not appear prominently in the pie chart.  Click "All Tunes…" and you will see it is represented with 53 instances, over against 588 for AZMON, 221 for RICHMOND, 161 for BLESSED NAME and several others.
