New Music week 43: QUEBEC

52 in 52For the final 10 entries in my 52 in 52 series, I plan to write settings of tunes that have been suggested to me by some of you over the course of the year. The first of these is a setting of the tune QUEBEC (“Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts”), thought to have been written by British musician Henry Baker when he was a student at Exeter College, Oxford. In the coming weeks, look for settings of “Amazing Grace,” “Let Us Break Bread Together,” “Holy Manna,” and more of your favorites.
