    As you say, "Hull" certainly does not appear in the 120 or 99 Hymns for Brass Band. It is an old Methodist tune in 1904,1933 and 1983 editions of Methodist hymn books. I would suspect that it is not sung often as the tune does not fit any of the popular hymns and if it was ever needed by a band I would expect a hand-written arrangement to have been made as a one-off.

    Thanks John - what I suspected. We're doing a "historic" service in June and they want to sing a hymn to this tune....

    Maybe worth googling the European City of Culture as I believe Hull is following in the footsteps of Liverpool and Glasgow as a nominated center of European cultural excellence - maybe the hymn tune forms part of the basis of the nomination, unless it's just drunk women weeing in the street in broad daylight that clinched the nomination for Hull, along with it's many Pound land, Cash converters and Greggs shops.
