I confess that I have always thought that “Jesus, Once of Humble Birth” could use a different tune. In this case, I have paired it with the familiar Easter melody usually associated with “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”. This setting is an acapella TTBB arrangement, simple, yet reverent. I hope that you enjoy it.
Today we have a version of Christ the Lord is Ris’n Today set to the tune of “Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise”. I have another more complex arrangement, but this one is much simpler with just SATB parts without extra accompaniment.
No one knows who wrote the words to “I Saw a Mighty Angel Fly”, but they are some of the most stirring words of the Restoration. I have paired these words with the hymn tune often paired with “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name”, which is also called “Coronation”. True to the name of the hymn tune, it sounds regal, and fits the majesty of the words.
