American Tune, a hymn for the Fourth

American Tune, a hymn for the Fourth

Also for your listening pleasure this Fourth of July, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel join forces to cover Simon’s classic, “American Tune.” Episcopalians of course recognize the melody as hymn 168 in the 1982 Hymnal, “O sacred head, sore wounded,” written originally as part of Hans Leo Hassler’s “Passion Chorale” and adapted and harmonized later by Johann Sebastian Bach. God bless America.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
