Resignation

friends meeting houseOne of my favorite early American tunes is Resignation. When I was speaking to a customer service contact at WLP/Paluch yesterday, she mentioned that many samples of instrumental music in their catalogue are online, including this fine arrangement by James Clemens.

    For those who might be curious: here’s an image of the 3-part setting in Southern Harmony #38 (with the melody in the tenor, as typical, which might be doubled in the high sopranos):

      PS: My favorite note in that tune is the seventh note (supertonic) of the third couplet (counting the repeat as the second couplet).

    That James Clemens arrangent is lovely; thank you.
    And Liam, thanks for the three-part setting. One time at a garage sale I found an old hymnal with shape-notes such as the ones in your image. I’m not sure quite what the purpose of the shapes is, but I can follow well enough to play an accompaniment. “Morning Trumpet” is one I like.
