A joyous newly composed hymn tune and arrangement.
Charles Wesley’s Meet and Right It Is to Sing is a paraphrase of the Eucharistic prayer leading up to the Sanctus from the Book of Common Prayer. It first appeared in 1749 in Wesley’s Hymns and Sacred Poems, Vol. II as No. 97. Composed in honor of the 300th birthday of Wesley, the original tune NIGHT LILY, written as a lullaby for the composer’s daughter, is arranged in a more rustic setting, calling to mind early-American frontier religion. Embedded in the music are playful moments where the text is symbolically represented by the music. For instance, the shift to the 3/8 bar on the words ‘three in one’ represents the Trinity! See if you can figure out some of the others!
