Verne Eke, our organist, has asked me to come up with a hymn text that can be sung to (the stanzaic portion of) Clayton’s Grand March by Charles D. Blake. He says it’s tremendously popular among the Odd Fellows. So I throw it out there. Suggestions?
I’m also trying to find out more about the piece and its composer, but facts are nearly irretrievable. He’s not mentioned in Wikipedia, so I started a page there in my user space to request input.
It’s definitely foot-stompin’ music, so if we can get an appropriate text we’ll sing it at the October hymn-sing.
