  • Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed? - Need info or sheet music or etc...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pao2KgVe1KA
    Beautiful rendition of "Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed?" sung by Singers of the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute. Does anyone know the Tune Name or more information like composer, hymn book details, etc...

    Another captivating tune set to "Moorlough Shore" aka "Foggy Dew", Does anyone know which hymn book contain this tune ?. or If sheet music is available for vocal/Piano.

    Couldn't find much info on both Tunes.

    Thanks,

    Try this link: https://hymnary.org/text/alas_and_did_my_savior_bleed. If you go to the bottom of the page and view Page Scans, you will find downloadable copies. Most hymn tunes are in public domain, so you can print what you need.

    Just below that, you will find instances where that particular tune is found in various hymnbooks. Hymnary can also be searched by tune name.

    From there, you should be fine on your own. Hope this helps.

        That really is a haunting tune it is set to in the video. I've not heard that tune before, so I can't help with the ID. In my traditions the hymn is normally set to the tune MARTYRDOM, and is CM. I suppose one way to find the tune would be to peruse all the CM tunes ( lots of them though ! ) till you find it. Please let us know if you find it.

          Ditto. It sounds a bit like someone has re-set the words to a new melody of modal derivation. Considering the hymn is so old (1700s), that doesn't surprise me at all.

          Just in case someone doesn't know, CM is not a tune name. CM stands for Common Meter, and there are literally hundreds of tune that are in common meter (i.e. Amazing Grace & the Doxology).

          Best of luck finding your tune. This thread has certainly piqued my curiosity!

          I guess I could have just spelled it out. But I figured we are talking about hymn tunes, so the abbreviation would be understood. Common Meter can also be found by the numbers - 86.86

        Earlier i had contacted the yt channel(Mennonite choir) regarding the tune name or sheet music, unfortunately they don't have any other info.

        Any one feel the first tune (sung by Mennonite choir) is based on some Irish/Welsh folk song ?. It is possible we can identify the tune name based on this.

          I have never heard that tune before, but agree it fits the Hymn well. It is a little modal, so may have Celtic roots.
