Yup,that's how it works. Hymnbooks will show the metre of a hymn's words, to make it easier to choose an alternative tune if the set tune is not known or liked.

The Hymnal 1940 (the Episcopal Church in the U.S.A.'s previous hymnal) had a metrical index; our Hymnal 1982 does not, but I seem to recall that the Accompaniment edition does.

The only 10.6.10.6 listed in 1940 is St. Nicholas ("O Brightness of the immortal Father's face...").

The Little Flock brethren hymnook book we used to use had metre printed at top of each hymn. Fine if you already knew other tunes of that metre. There was also a book of melodies, not harmonies. This was indexed solely by metre, although name was given above each set of music.

No instruments were used in the meeting, so sometimes it took a while for someone to start a hymn after remembering a suitable tune. Not to mention the strong singer who usually had learnt tune but learnt wrongly!

Do you know of "Metrical Psalms" which are sung by most Reformed* churches? Guess where the word "Metrical" comes from.

No I am not thinking LeRoc has Scottish ancestory. I believe the earliest Reformed ones were written in Strasbourg while John Calvin was there or maybe just before.

Jengie jon: Do you know of "Metrical Psalms" which are sung by most Reformed* churches? Guess where the word "Metrical" comes from.
I was born within the Dutch Reformed Church (it later merged into the Protestant Church in the Netherlands). I looked up Metrical Psalter, and it tells me that the Psalms in the Liedboek voor de Kerken (the hymn book that this church used until recently and which I know well) were based on the Metrical Psalter. I never heard the name 'Metrical Psalter' though, nor have I seen the 8.6.8.6. notation. This may just be a gap in my knowledge.

Something that some very traditional Reformed congregations in the Netherlands do (not my congregation) is called 'whole note psalm singing', in which they sing the psalm in a non-rhythmical way on semibreves / whole notes. Here is a video of Psalm 25, there are many more on the internet.

No, the "Interwiki" feature isn't always 100% perfect about finding every matching result in another language: this would be what you're looking for.

The articles's title is about poetic metre, and it has a Wikidata link (it isn't called interwiki anymore) to metre (poetry). The whole idea is that hymnic metre is different from poetic metre.

No, that's an example of what I mean. Topics are often subdivided differently in different Wikipedias, so there isn't always an exact one-for-one correlation between articles. The English-language Wikipedia is the only one to have an article dedicated to poetic metre specifically as it relates to hymnody. Because it also has an article on poetic metre more generally, that's what gets "matched" to the equivalent Portuguese article, and the software doesn't allow two English articles to be paired with a single article in another language. But that shouldn't lead you to believe that "hymnic metre is different from poetic metre." Hymns are poems, and the concept is the same.

The way I understand it, they are different measuring systems. Poetic metre measures feet (iambes, trochees etc.), hymnic metre measures syllables.

Yes, according to the relevant English-language article, musicians may sometimes count the same lines differently, but the same system is used. So for instance, at Common metre, we have Amazing Grace listed alongside examples from Woodsworth and Dickinson.

All of which takes us a bit afield from your original question (Is it an English thing) and its answer (No).

You're confusing the general with the specific. Yes, most countries have something like metre. But I've never encountered people saying things like '8.6.8.6.' outside of English-speaking countries, so I still suspect it's an Anglo-Saxon thing.

Perry's Index lists four tunes in this metre, viz. Ignatius (aka Llanthony Abbey), in the Mirfield Mission Hymnbook, Irish Church Hymnal, Redemption Hymnal; Lux Vera, in Ancient & Modern Standard; Manor Street, in Songs of Praise; Praise Him (Bailey), in Hymns of Faith, Baptist Hymn Book (1962), Congregational Praise, Church Hymnary III, Salvation Army Tune Book. Perry was published in 1980, so you may find these or others in newer books.

The only hymn I can think of in this metre is one I recall from Sunday School aeons ago, namely 'Praise him, praise him, all ye little children, He is love, he is love'. Repetitive, passim, and in retrospect pretty dire. These words appear in CH3 as 'Anonymous' to a tune by Carey Bonner; in CP (with slightly different words, ascribed to the Blessèd Percy) to the same tune, but attributed to one E.R. Bailey. In Sunday School we had the earlier Church Hymnary and a collection called 'Child Songs' compiled by Carey Bonner, so I must have come across it from the latter. Did the editors of CH3 get the thing from that and muddle the authorship? Manor Street in SP is by Martin Shaw, and is set to the same form as words as in CP, ascribed to 'SPV'. SPV = Songs of Praise Version, i.e. something taken from someone else and 'amended' by the editors (inc. the Blessèd Percy, renowned for his improvements to e.g. Bunyan).

Lux Vera (by John Bacchus Dykes) is set to Wm Bright's "Still throned in Heav’n, to men in unbelief" in AMS.

I have no idea of what words go to the first of the tunes, not having access to the books in question.

Over and above these, the Bristol Tune Book offers Via lucis (George Lomas), set to 'Eye hath not seen Thy glory' and S. John (Berthold Tours) set to 'There is no love like the love of Jesus'.

Is this meter right for the Welsh version? In English, the first phrase ("There is a redeemer, Jesus God's own Son") is either two lines (6,5) or a single line of 11 syllables - or am I missing something?

Most of the main hymn books have a metrical index in the back - great for when you want to put words and tunes together. But when I looked in the back of the 2 main hymn books that my church has used over several years, 10 6 10 6 doesn't feature at all. 10 7 10 7 comes closest - no. 507 Worlebury (Hymns A&M, New Standard). Perhaps the solution is to look more specifically at Welsh Hymn Books, if the metre is more common to Welsh lyrics?

Just looked again at the alleged tune we have in our tune book - Ptaise Him. Yes indeed we do have it! But in our metrical index it's lumped together with all the other 'irregular' metres and not given a numbering like the others. I think it may be because it's the only tune of that metre and there is only one song that goes with it so it can't be used for any other song, thus rendering the metrical specification useless.

Many thanks for all the ideas.

Sadly, CFf 336 is trochaic, whilst ap Ceredigion's words are iambic. Add that to weedy picking on a ukelele and the results are....interesting. [Help]
