CRUCIFIX (Greek)

Composer: Anonymous

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >

Notes

Said to be a "Greek Air," CALCUTTA was one of the popular national tunes used by Dublin's Thomas Moore (1779-1852) in his Sacred Songs (1816). Arthur S. Sullivan (PHH 46) adapted it for congregational singing and published it in his Church Hymns with Tunes (1874). [The tune was earlier adapted for congregational singing in the tune LORAINE in Lowell Mason's and George Webb's The Psaltery (1845) and in the tune MILLENIUM SONG in Thomas Hastings and William B. Bradbury's The New York Choralist (1847)] The tune is named CALCUTTA because of its association with "From Greenland's Icy Mountains," a text by Reginald Heber (PHH 249), who was the Anglican bishop of Calcutta at the time of his death.

CALCUTTA is a bar form (AAB) with a harmonization that invites part singing.
