Notes

FESTUS is an abridgement of a tune published in Johann A. Freylinghausen's (PHH 34) Geistreiches Gesangbuch (1704) as a setting for "O du Hüter Israel." The shortened tune was first published in the Bristol Tune Book (1863). The tune title presumably honors Festus, the Roman procurator of Judea (Acts 25-26). Sing FESTUS with a bright organ registration, which is helpful in negotiating the larger intervals in the second half of the tune. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
