O for a thousand tongues to sing

LYNGHAM is a fuguing tune by Thomas Jarman (b. Clipston, Northamptonshire, England, 1776; d. Clipston, 1862), published in his Sacred Music (around 1803). Jarman was a tailor by vocation, but he much preferred his musical avocation. He composed many hymn tunes, which were published in seventeen collections, including The Northamptonshire Harmony (1826), as well as in The Wesleyan Methodist periodical. Jarman was a popular choral director at the Clipston Baptist Chapel and at music festivals in neighboring villages.
Typical of fuguing tunes, LYNGHAM begins chordally and then moves to imitative lines that require part singing as well as repetition of some of the textual phrases. The tune has also been effectively set to "Oh, for a Thousand Tongues to Sing" (501).
The tune works well for choral singing and for congregational singing in parts. The rhythmic vitality of the music needs brisk organ accompaniment, but keep the accompaniment light as well as vigorous!
