Brian,

You pulled out all the stops for the last verse which sounded great. You also had a very 'busy' bass line for most of it. And you are another one who would have driven my Aunt up the wall, as you had that little 'skip' in "a-n-gels". Is that bass line, and that little 'skip' what is written in the music? Don never did answer my question about that when he played it.

Hugh, I played the arrangement (give or take a few small changes) as written.
I will send you the music I played from. When you get it, have a look at the bassline.

Thanks for that Brian. Well, you could knock me down with a feather. Looking at the music for O Come All Ye Faithful, both you and Don are right. There is a little 'skip' on the word 'a-n-gels'.

So my Aunt was wrong. I have also noted that busy 'bass part' in the music.

Brian,

Looking again at the music you have played from, I see yours is an arrangement (of the original?). Now my Aunt would have played this Hymn from Hymns Ancient and Modern, Revised Edition. I have found a copy of this, and it's Hymn No: 593 (in G). Taking a close look at the line we were talking about, Born the King of an-gels ..

No 'busy' bass part, and no 'skip'. My Aunt was right!

Just before Christmas Bronwyn and I did a train trip up to Lincoln with a visit to the Christmas Market included, but it was so busy we went to Lincoln Cathedral instead. Sitting in the choir stalls, I picked up two hymn books with music, which were obviously the ones the choir used. One was Hymns Ancient and Modern, New Standard, and the other The New English Hymnal. So I flipped through and found O Come All Ye Faithful in each hymn book. Neither had the 'skip'.

Then later, as we were wandering round the Cathedral, a children's choir arrived, with their organist (weren't we lucky?). And they sang O Come All Ye Faithful. The organist was superb, and the bass pipes really reverberated within the church. Wonderful! And when we got to the bit where the 'skip' was (or wasn't) I couldn't really hear what the choir were singing as most of the congregation put that little 'skip' in. So I asked the lady next to me, who's daughter was in the choir, to ask her, "Did they do a 'skip'?" Well, I shall never know the answer to that one!

Tony (Newnham). Perhaps you can clear up this one. Was my Aunt right?
