GESCHICHTE: Sufferings of Jesus

My friend David Landegent has written many hymn texts, most recently concentrating on scripture-based texts. One of his recent texts, “Sufferings of Jesus” is based on 2 Cor. 1:3-11. He wrote it with the tune ASSURANCE (Blessed Assurance) in mind, but I felt that tune was too sprightly to encompass the themes of suffering and consolation found in his text. And you know what Greg does when he thinks a tune is too this or that for a given text, right? He composes a new one. Here’s a PDF and an MP3 of the new tune, appropriately–if obscurely–named GESCHICHTE.
