Best of Blog (5): Isaiah 55 set to Music

Isaiah 55

Here is another student project from my 2-Isaiah class, OT-206, Spring 2005. Rosemary Beales has set Isaiah 55:6-11, the Second Song of Isaiah, as a metrical version that can be sung to a hymn tune. The tune she chose was Blaenhafren, a Welsh folk tune, 1982 Hymnal # 610. I think the results that she achieved work rather well. They are based on hard work, exegesis, and artistic talent.

You can see her version (and her research) here.

You can hear the tune as a MIDI audio file here.
