Japheth, a tune
Back in June of last year, I promised to try to post this tune, and I see now that I failed to do so. It is a type of memorial song, so I hought it would be appropriate for Memorial Day. This tune JAPHETH was written for the hymn Rest on Jesus' bosom. This tune has some unintended affinities to my tune WILEY in a few places (See p. 514 in The Sacred Harp, 2012 Cooper Edition).
