This week on the webcast of a Eucharist from St. John's, Cambridge, there is a hymn that I didn't know. I do know and love the tune UNSER HERRSCHER as it is called in the Hymnal 1982, or NEANDER as it is sometimes called, with it's valiant upward rise to the interval of a tenth above where it starts.
But the words I know for this tune are "He is risen, he is risen" by Mrs. C. F. Alexander.
I did not know the hymn "Come, ye faithful, raise the anthem" by Job Hupton and John Mason Neale (not to be confused with "Come, ye faithful, raise the strain" a J. M. Neale translation of a John of Damascus hymn, or the Christmas hymn "O come, all ye faithful" by John F. Wade).
It's nice to have another set of words to sing to this splendid tune outside of Eastertide.
You can hear the hymn, No. 531 in the New English Hymnal for the next couple months on the webcast of the Sung Eucharist with Strings from 1 July.
It is in the twenties that the actual momentum of life begins to slacken, and it is a simple soul indeed to whom as many things are significant and meaningful at thirty as at ten years before. At thirty an organ-grinder is a more or less moth-eaten man who grinds an organ–and once he was an organ-grinder!

A delightful summer YouTube find: "Easter from Kings" (video in two parts). It's a lessons-and-carols-type service with poetry in addition to biblical readings.
I always try to tell people about Columbus, Indiana, and they always nod politely and try to change the topic of the conversation.
Mediocrity is expensive
So, I was pleased that it was the subject of a great story on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday this morning.
