As a German speaker, I have always been a fan of Wagner’s music. One of my favorites is the Pilgrim’s Chorus from Tannhäuser, which is one I have sung with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Here’s an older recording of it:
I have taken the tune and used it for a setting of “Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee”, combining it with one verse of another version “Jesu, the Very Thought is Sweet”. Enjoy!
