Playing for funerals at the local Crem next week. Have been asked for the hymn tune WESSEX. Anybody out there know where I might find a copy of said tune please. I understand the funeral is for a member of the Christian Science Church. Don't know if that helps.

Many Thanks

New English Hymnal hymn 49 tune 1 is called "Wessex" - a fine tune by Alwyn Surplice for "Brightest and Best".

Has anyone ever used Robert Ashfield's tune "Broadwalk" for "Brightest and best"?

It was set to that text in the Anglican Hymn Book.

I don't think it's been used at Epiphany here since Bobby retired.
