Misc. Comments

  • A hymn tune, commonly attributed to Bortniansky, but not clearly identified as part of Bortniansky's published works. It is best known from John Stevenson's work A Selection of Popular National Airs (1818).
  • According to, "no tune resembling this one has been found in that Russian composer's published works. Stevenson is generally recognized as being the arranger if not also the composer".
  • Grove Music does not list this hymn in Bortniansky's work list.
  • Since the first known version of this work is Stevenson's, and that work was in English, it has been tagged for English.
