Notes

The tune most commonly known as DE FLEURY is a German folk tune. In American shape-note tradition the tune is known as GREEN FIELDS or GREENFIELDS. J. S. Bach quoted it in his "Peasant Cantata," but he did not compose it. It has also been misattributed to Maria DeFleury and to Lewis Edson. Edson wrote a different fuguing tune named GREENFIELD. The text "How tedious and tasteless the hours" was first associated with the tune GREENFIELDS in Metcalf's Kentucky Harmonist, 1818.
