I Will Sing The Wondrous Story – Sunday Songs repeat

I Will Sing The Wondrous Story features on EMU Music’s new album of traditional hymns Praise Without Ceasing.
I’m featuring these, even though I’ve had most of the hymns that are part of the album on Sunday Songs before.
In the case of I Will Sing The Wondrous Story it was back in November 2011.
EMU’s version is not too slow. Let’s call it ‘thoughtful’ or ‘reflective’. The tune HYFRYDOL has been simplified a bit, but is still quite recognisable and if you know it you’ll be able to adjust quickly enough. (And there’s no added chorus. yay)
I think it’s meant to be celebratory and joyful, but there you go.
