GENEVAN 101 was first published in the 1551 edition of the Genevan Psalter. Claude Goudimel (PHH 6) harmonized the tune in 1564. Like most of Goudimel's harmonizations, the melody was originally in the tenor. The Psalter Hymnal Revision Committee changed some of the bass notes to provide first inversion chords; Goudimel's original bass provided all root position chords. GENEVAN 101 appears twice in the Psalter Hymnal: once here in its authentic, original Genevan form, and at 248 in its altered Anglo-Genevan form under the name JE TE SALUE. To avoid confusion when introducing the tune, organists should play it through once before the congregation sings. Use strong organ accompaniment, a brisk articulation, and a stately tempo.
