First Line: Jesus’ Name of Wondrous Love
Name: UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
Meter: 7 7, 7 7.
Tempo: Slowly, with dignity
Music: Henry John Gauntlett, 1805-76
Text: William Walsham How, 1823-97
The first, and only hymn, from the Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal, celebrating “Circumcision and Name of Jesus”.
I am not sure if it is specifically to celebrate Jesus’ circumcision or any circumcision.
Clarinet Arrangement: 50-jesusnameofwondrouslove
Jesus, Name of wondrous love!
Human Name of God above;
Pleading only this we flee,
Helpless, O our God, to thee. Amen.
Kind of a bleak, masochistic, hymn, but at least it is mercifully, and appropriately, SHORT.
Doubled clarinets on all parts, with the usual “Large Room” audacity Effect.
