I think we have hit that topic again here. All of the = hymns in your second list are what I call STRONG hymns. Most of those in the = first list are not (the possible exception is How Great Thou Art.) Does anyone else on this list have this gut feeling about tunes being "strong" or otherwise?   Will Light Coventry UK   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Charlie Lester Sent: 19 January 2005 06:31 To: PipeChat Subject: Old Chestnuts -- some of them stale   The history of hymnody prickles with hymns of questionable=20 merit - either musically or theologically or both - but=20 that, for one reason or another, greatly appeal to=20 congregations.

I am=20 sure if I put more thought to it I could come up with more.   Some of these are appealing, for one reason or another, on=20 the first "listen" - e.g., "On Eagles' Wings."
