(With thanks to some of my minister friends south of Hadrian's Wall)
Tunes to which 'While Shepherd's Watched' has been sung in church settings... a) Winchester Old (usual tune)
b) Ilkley Moor bar t'hat (Ilkla Moor baht 'at)
c) Lyngham (Oh, for a thousand tongues)
d) Sweet shining Christmas bells
So far, so good, huh? Keep going... yes, really...
e) The house of the rising sun
f) Ghost riders in the sky
And if not sung, at least been aware of...
g) The laughing policeman
So, of anyone wants to spice up their carol service, or maybe ruin someone else's, feel free to experiement with any of these
