* I wrote this tune when
I first came across the song; I much prefer it as the emphasis falls
walk, walk in the light
which I consider much kinder on the ears than
walk, walk, in the light
which I find clumsy.
I welcome your feedback on these items. It is easy
to compose a tune; it is much more difficult to make it work well. I hope that you enjoy them. Most used has been the tune SIDCUP
for Take up thy Cross. I suggest that it has a more appropriate feel
than that typically used - BRESLAU which I note has been subject to
modification by some publishers to "lose" the opening minor chord.
You're there! and Take
up thy cross (SIDCUP) are now included in The Volume.
