Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

TRURO

Composer: Charles Burney

A music historian and composer, Burney attended Shrewsbury School and the Free School, Chester. He was apprenticed to Thomas Arne from 1744 to 1746. In 1749, he became organist at St. Dionis’ Backchurch, London. In 1751 moved to King’s Lynn, Norfolk, where he taught and played the organ. His works include: Music, Men, and Manners in France and Italy, 1770 A General History of Music, from the Earliest Ages to the Present Period (London: 1776-89) Sources: Findagrave, accessed 18 Nov 2016 Nutter, p. 454 © The Cyber Hymnal™.

Notes

TRURO is an anonymous tune, first published in Thomas Williams's Psalmodia Evangelica, (second vol., 1789) as a setting for Isaac Watts' "Now to the Lord a noble song." Virtually nothing is known about this eighteenth-century British editor of the two-volume Psalmodia Evangelica, a collection of three-part psalm and hymn tunes for "Churches, Chapels, and Dissenting Meetings in England, Scotland, and Ireland." The tune is named for an ancient city in Cornwall, England, famous for its cathedral and for its pottery. TRURO's opening phrase ascends the octave. The entire tune is influenced by George F. Handel's style and bears relationship to similar tunes (see comments at PHH 412). Sing stanzas 1 and 5 in unison, stanzas 2-4 in harmony with stanza 4 unaccompanied. Use clear articulation on the organ and a moderate tempo. Try also to frame the singing of this hymn with "Clap Your Hands" (166); that rendition would be very fitting for Ascension services. Wren believes that more meditative tunes than TRURO are also appropriate for this text; try the familiar ROCKINGHAM (178). --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
