  • Rescue the perishing

    1 digital file. :50 | In the 1870s, hymn tunes tended to be far more closely wedded to a particular set of words than in earlier periods; composers no longer wrote tunes to abstract rhythmic patterns, singable to any text in that particular meter. Thus, W. H. Doane's stirring tune for "Rescue the Perishing" is wedded to Fanny J. Crosby's words. The performers are ...

  • Grandfather's clock

    1 digital file. 1:14 | Henry Clay Work's 1876 song "Grandfather's Clock" is indisputably the greatest of furniture songs.
