Shallow unison
God Help The King (OK: pretty obvious!)
O Leave all ye Sinners
Deafening Morning
Pebble of minutes
And did those arms in modern days
There is a Blue Plateau
Drop Down Your Clubs
Be Thou My Telegraph

Deep Harmony
God Save the Queen?
O Come All Ye Faithful
Silent Night
Rock Of Ages
Jerusalem
There is a green hill far away
Lift up your hearts (groan...)
Be Thou My Sun (or Star?)


Here's some more;

The night you took from us lady has begun
Hate mortal, one hate failing
Peace the bad peace
Here in a four-poster bed
No, I can't hear any devils

May think of more later!

Be Thou My Guardian, actually, but well done!

The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, Has Ended
Love Divine All Love's Excelling
Fight the Good Fight
Away in a Manger
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing?

Random number normally works. I like it when an MD asks someone to pick a random number for a hymn and then goes, "I don't know that" , or "I don't like that one, turn to 7" :)

I know what you mean. Makes you wonder how MDs who say that know any hymns at all, if they don't want to play them because they don't know them! :?

I think its more a case that they want to play their favourite hymns, but feel they better give the band a chance to pick one!! If the MD likes it, then the band play it, if not then the MD will pick one anyway. Its all nice and fair that way!! :shock: :wink: :)

I really like "The Day Thou Gavest Lord Hath Ended" (and I can't remember the number :? ).

One previous conductor used to always play the ones with 4 flats - then he got bored of that (IMHO) then it was 43 (Lloyd) pianissimo followed by 37 (Hursley - all in one breath - when you run out you have to stop playing.. last one left at the end is the winner lol).

My new band play no. 15 (Darwall's 148th) which is another nice one - and 24 on the diaphragm.

I do number 54 a lot with B+E...
play it through as written... then playing each note as quavers, triplets, semi's, then as written again...
Looooovely!

;-)

I also like number 3...
and a few others, but I cant remember what numbers they are...

My old band was 43 37 50 and 69, and occasionally 1. 43 mostly though.

Is this some sort of bizarre numerical code to get us to try and work out what your old band is called??? ;-) ;-)

I'd put money on the following being "Red Book" favs :-
Blaenwern (7)
Whitburn (111)
Sandon (97)
Aberystwyth (1)
Eventide (29)
Next would come :-
Diadem
Melita
Dresden
Hyfrydol

After being out of banding for 18 years, I came back to it in 1989 and still knew that 61 was the National Anthem, and Blaenwern was no. 7 !!!
( I also remembered the "Nasty Bits" in certain old Test Pieces !!)

P.S. - The old March Card size hymn selection with "Deep Harmony" and "Lavinia" etc. takes some beating.

Being me and being Welsh I have to put my favorites as 1. Aberystwyth and 7.Blaenwern (love the euph part near the end) but Crimond, Hyfrydol and LLoyd are all good Hymns.

One of the best hymns I know for excerise is 10. Colne, played pp and all in one breath,,, absolutely fabulous for breathing and control!!
