The Official Sacred Music/Hymns Thread

Recommended Posts

Yet another post relating to Donald Dumler, but I've been thinking about him a lot lately, and I can't begin Christmas music season without some St. Patrick's content. These midnight masses were a real staple for me, either on TV or in person depending on the year (in this case, I was there in person).

The music program there has never really, that I recall anyway, been as truly great as it could and should be, but that's nothing to do with Donald who did his part as organist brilliantly since the 70's, regardless of what the context was.

That place is one of the handful of things I miss about NYC.

Huh, go figure! I've yet to have a proper European Christmas but Germany is where I'd choose. 

 

It was great on reflection, as children we only wanted back to watch bad movies on tv.

I haven't been to church in many years, but I was raised Baptist with a dad who was organist and choir director.  I have had this very common, popular hymn stuck in my head all day for no reason and I cannot for the life of me figure out what it is.  It seems so familiar that I have a feeling it's like not being able to place "Ode to Joy" or something stupid.

 

Can anyone help me?  I did the below transcription on a free site.  It's not exactly how it sounds, but it's a close approximation:

What's gonna be funny is when it turns out it's not even a hymn :P

I've had several looks at this, but just can't place what it might be.  Whistle it and upload!

Hoped it'd ring a bell to justify the effort, but alas....

 

I remembered to ask my dad today and I finally know what the tune is!

 

Come, We That Love the Lord (aka We're Marching to Zion)
