A Tale of Two Hymns

Two hymns deep in Catholic devotion. Only one will advance to the Spiritual Sixteen.

I suspect the Soul Of My Savior/How Great Thou Art was not an inspiring pairing for some of you. I split up each bracket into a similar number of NPM songs, chant, seasonal music, hymnody, and non-Catholic sources. Four hymns in one sub-bracket: that’s just how it panned out.

Just so you know that genre is a function less of the composer and more the performance, listen to a contemporary (but way too slow) rendering of “Holy Holy Holy” here.

Let the British do Anima Christi for you.
