  1. Dear Friend from UK: Thanks so much, this blog is wonderfull, I mean marvelous, works really good, take you straight to the video in you tube, so is very easy to manipulate, and believe me.... a hugh help to the music begginers, also musician in general, warm regards from Hermosillo, Mexico

  2. Jonnie Dear friend, thanks so much for this video of the Haendel Amen . Is gonna be very helpfull to study the bass part. We really appreciate your job, is excellent by the way. Thanks again buddy, and have a merry Christmas. Warm regards from Hermosillo, México

  3. Nice job. Great help.
    Sometime in future, can you add "All creatures of our God and King"?

  4. I've always struggled with "A Mighty Fortress." Would you mind giving that a shot? My absolute favorite hymn.

    1. Done! New one to me, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    2. Awesome job! Thanks so much.

  5. Fantastic!! Great work! How about some Faure? I would love to sing the bass part to his Requiem and also the sublime Cantique de Jean Racine.

    1. I think I'll do Faure's Requiem next ...

  6. Jonnie, I studied the parts you uploaded regarding Vivaldi Gloria, and everything is there, So thanks so much. Congrats

  7. Thank you so much, I admire your dedication to help the others. I'm sendind some of this parts for the bass of the quartet (it's just a quartet). It will help him a lot!

  8. Bless you, bless you, bless you, bless you (can I repeat that?) I am a bass also, found this by accident today, have no recording of the Messiah, but do have the score in hand. Been years since I did the whole thing, am auditioning in two weeks (hope it's just a 'voice placement') to be in the 'amateur' (or 'audience') 'sing-along' chorus here in Germany (apparently, that's how they do 'Messiah sing-alongs' here...). It's a total joy to find this site and all of your Messiah work on it, today. Thanks so much!

    1. Great to hear from you! Hopefully it'll all go well! Let me know if you have any requests ...

  9. couldN't post the url on fb, I#m not too good with sheet music, but maybe there is a bass part for "I Vow To Thee..." on that score:

  10. hi friend
    thks for your work. I wish have known your parts before, I'm a lower bass and your parts are very useful for us. Your latin is quite good, I'm italian and I can tell it, so never mind. Just two little facts: the "t" for an englishman sounds like a "tch" but in italian (and latin) it isn't so; the second is very difficult for you: the sound "gn" (like in "agnus dei") isn't "g - n" but letters are joined in a strange sound (for instance, go to google translater and listen the pronounce of "agnello" (lamb) in italian.
    Thanks a lot again.
    Lucio - Bari - Italy

  12. Hello! Would it be impudent to ask you for another popular Christmas hymn? Here is the score:, but I can't make it on my own... Would be great and I guess there are many others, too, who like this song! Best, Simon

    1. Will do ... Thursday or Friday it should be up!

    2. It's up -

      Any more carols?

  13. Thank you so much, great! Really great work - I'm not very musical, actually, so I couldn't kake it just from the SATB sheet w/o your help!

    Any more carols? Of course :-) What about "We Three Kings":

    all the best from Vienna, Austria

  14. This comment has been removed by the author.

  15. Wow, you are working faster than I can come forth with new songs :-) I thought about "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", but I have to find SATB sheet music first in the right tune (there are actually two versions). Anyway, I'll post it asap.

    Thank you so much and greetings to England or wherever you are at home actually!

    best, Simon

  16. here we go: "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" with the "Carol" tune:

    best, Simon

    1. Done! And the other tune too ... thanks!

  17. Hi Jonnie,

    Any chance of you doing the bass part to Schubert's Mass in G if/when you have the time?


    Ron (Perth, Australia)

    1. Yes ... are you performing it for Christmas, or after then?

      Hope all is well!


    2. I've begun Schubert's Mass in G today ... the first video is now up. I'll send you another message when I've finished! Hope it helps!

  18. In case you are still willing, one last classic carol request before Christmas:

    Thank you so much :)

    1. I am ... and good idea! I keep looking blankly at the list of carols thinking, "that can't be it!?"


    2. I've done it ... but I used the harmony in Carols for Choirs ... so it's not the same as the music you sent me. Hopefully it's ok! Let me know if you want me to do yours.

  19. Hi ... finding you has been brilliant! Thank you so much - your Ave Verum Corpus was a real help to our basses recently. Now we are starting rehearsals (next week) for our Christmas Concert and we need some help with the following: John Rutter - Christmas Lullaby and Star Carol and The Shepherds Farewell by Berlioz.
    Any chance you could add those to your list?
    Looking of
    Thanks in anticipation!

    1. Hi ... thanks for your kind support, I really appreciate people contacting me!

      So, The Shepherds' Farewell is not a problem except that it's so low ... but I've had a go - ... I've sung the alternate notes (I don't sing bottom E.)

      John Rutter however - I'd have to get copyright permission to have a go at those. I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Perhaps I should explore it! But, sorry, I don't think I can do those without his permission!


  20. Thanks, the bp for "God Rest Ye..." ist great right the way you did it! Here's another suggestion for the "carol" section:

    Less than one month, than we can actually begin to perform the christmas carols we could practice thanks to your help!

    Best, Simon

  21. Heres another one in case you can make it:

    Thanks for your great work,

  22. Is there anyway you could post Benedicamus Domino by Peter Warlock? Thanks!

  23. This has been incredible useful for me, thanks again! I was able to sing "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" at my church concert thanks to your help.
    Looking over the list of Christmas Carols, I can name two that are very popular in the United States that aren't listed, in case you're interested in doing them: "Joy to the World" (Handel) and "Silent Night".


  25. Any chance of Karl Jenkins "and the mother did weep" - especially the section "Kai eklausen he meter"? It's really hard!

    Paul, Scotland

    1. Many apologies, but I can only make videos of pieces in the public domain - so nearly always composers who died more than 75 years ago. Frustrating!

  26. Thanks for your response - frustrating indeed. A great piece but the three (or is it four?) language middle section is hard for amateurs! You would think that modern composers would be pleased that people are buying their music and attempting to sing it. This is coaching, not piracy! Thanks again for the work you are currently doing - it has been a great help!

    Paul, Scotland

  27. Thank you for doing all of this work! My church choir is doing No. 44 - Chorus, and I need to work on the bass part but it is hard trying to hear it on the other recordings available.

  28. Brilliant website - thank you. Do you have time to do "And can it be" or "We have a gospel to proclaim/Jesus Thy Blood and Righteousness" tune Fulda.

    Best wishes
    Phil, Exeter

    1. Thanks!
      Good suggestions! I keep looking at the hymn list trying to think of others that would be useful! Here's "And can it be" ... I'll upload "We have a gospel to proclaim" tomorrow.


    3. Thank you so much for these - really great. I love the bass line of Fulda particularly.

  29. Many many thanks for taking the time to help us practicing basses. I've been struggling for years to learn parts with only a limited ability of reading music and never enough time to go over things again and again at practices. Your videos are truly a Godsend! They are precisely what so many of us need. `God so loved the world` is being sung on Easter Sunday.

    We are also singing `Most Glorious Lord Of Life. Words by Edmund Spenser and music by William Harris. I'd be grateful of any help.

    1. Thanks for the support!

      I'm very sorry, but I'm pretty sure that setting of 'Most Glorious Lord of Life' is still in copyright, so I don't think I'm allowed to put it up on youTube. Most of the time it's in copyright for 70 years after the composer's death. Annoying, as I'm sure he wouldn't mind!

    2. Hi Jonnie,
      Any chance you could upload "With a Voice of Singing" Martin Shaw? This is my next Evensong anthem. Also, what would be handy is "He Who Would Valiant Be" Monksgate, arr. Vaughn Williams.
      This is a great site,
      Roger Murr

  31. thanks for your blog and your videos on YouTube, as an amateur bass singer in our twice a year church choir these really help

  32. What a magnanimous gesture on your part. You have no idea how helpful this is to those of us who sing with chorales and choirs. Everyone is saying thanks, but I really think you deserve more than this. Even though you haven't asked I think we should all make a monetary contribution to you. I'd be willing to do so. Is that possible?

    1. Thank you so much for your comment and your very generous offer! I've been creating videos for a couple of years now and the wonderful responses and requests I receive have been absolutely fantastic! I actually work as a musician, playing the piano for ballet and musicals, so this is more of a hobby for me - although, I should come clean and say that I do actually receive some money for my work, through google's advertising service (we're talking about 50p a day or so.) However, if you really do feel able, I'd be happy to have inspired a small donation to
      Many thanks!
      P.S. Any requests?

  33. Hi Jonnie,
    Any chance you could give us "Thou knowest, Lord", Henry Purcell (from the burial service)? Roger

    1. Yes I can! I'll do it this week or next week ... thanks!

    2. Done! There are lots of editions to choose from, so a few notes and rhythms might be different. Also, this is so slow, it's really hard to sing on your own! Hope it's helpful anyway ...

  34. Thanks Jonnie, that was perfect, performance went without a hitch, Roger

  35. Congratulations and thanks for creating this brilliant resource!
    Is there any chance you could do Mozart's Nocturnes?
    (KV 346, 436-439, 549)

  36. Hey Jonnie,

    Yes I saw this and I am extremely grateful for all you are doing. It is extremely helpful and I use it a lot in our worship team to study the bass parts.
    Could you please do the bass part of Silent Night.
    Are there any chance to get the sheet music as well or a suggestion of a good place to go to online.
    Even a snapshot of the ones you are singing from.
    I would like to keep personal contact with you. I am an evangelist in Bahrain in the Middle East, my ministry is EL SHADDAI MINISTRIES 777 on FACEBOOK, and my email address is:
    Looking forward to hear from you.

    God bless


    1. Hi,

      I've uploaded Silent night ... although there are lots of different arrangements, so I'm not sure if you'll find it helpful. I've used this arrangment - You can find lots of carols here. The video I have uploaded is here -



  37. I've been listening to Requiem from Brahms. It is an excellent help. I'm wondering if you have recorded the rest of the 7 movements because I will sing it in April and it will help me a lot.

    1. I got a bit stuck with that one ... but yes, I will give it a go in the new year! Will hopefully have it finished by April, but whatever I get done will hopefully be useful to you!



  38. Thanks a lot for your quick answer. Sorry for not answering before but I was out on holidays. I will check if you have hanged something else on YouTube. Now I have started practising. It is quite difficult. I have a lot of work to do but I'm enjoying it a lot. It is lovey.
    Thanks again,

  39. you are awesome! Very tempted to build on what you've done here with tenor parts - unless you know of anyone else who's already done that?

    1. I'm thinking about doing the tenor parts to a few of my most popular videos ...
      I don't know anyone else who's done anything like this with a real voice rather than synthesised daleks - go for it!

  40. Hi Jonnie,
    Could you possibly do "Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus" - tune Ebenezer? I think it's such a wonderful hymn.
    Many thanks
    Phil (Exeter)

    1. Hi Phil,
      Sorry not to do this sooner, I've been very busy recently ... here you go! Hope you enjoy it!

  41. Your work on you tube is brilliant. I am new to the church choir, and to be honest, I am struggling. We never have time to practice each hymn enough for me to really get the hang of it. However, now that I have found you on you tube I can practice at home as much as I want. Glenn

    1. Thanks! You're exactly the kind of person who I'm looking to help!

  42. I have spent many pleasant hours practicing the classic hymns thanks to your videos. Once in a while one of these appears on the church program, and now I can sing with confidence. This is an outstanding resource - thanks very much! If you're still looking for ideas, I'd be very interested in seeing "How Great Thou Art".

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. Many thanks for your comments and your very kind donation - much appreciated! I'll upload a video for "How Great Thou Art" this week hopefully ... always helpful when someone points out a popular omission! Thanks again

    3. Here you go!

    4. Thank you very much! Very nice job, and I really like the harmony. This is the hymn I'm going to learn next.

  43. your work is awesome !!
    it really help me when practicing.
    I wish you could continue Brahms-German requem
    keep up the good job !! May God bless you always.

    1. Thanks very much.
      I got a bit stuck on the Brahms ... was taking me a long time! But yes, maybe I should get back into it!

  44. Hi - thanks so much for this amazing resource. I am in our school's parents' choir, and we are performing Mozart's Requiem as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations next year. Couldn't do it without your recordings to keep me on-tune for home practice! Keep up the good work :-)

  45. I started singing bass when my voice changed--about 50 years ago. I love to sing parts in congregational hymns, but I've never sung in a choir. Recently our church's minister of music asked if I'd be willing to join the choir in singing "How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place" from Brahms' Requiem. I wanted to, but it was really intimidating! Fortunately, someone pointed me to your YouTube post of it. We sang it today, and it went very well, but I know that I could not have prepared for it without this. Thanks so much! Next stop: "And the Glory of the Lord" from Messiah!

    1. Thanks for your kind words - much appreciated!
      Sounds like you've been thrown in at the deep end! I'm sure the rest of the choir appreciate having a hard working bass on board. Good luck with Messiah - I think it's easier to memorise than the Brahms.
      Jonnie (Basshymn)

  46. Thank you very much. It is very useful.Thanks, thanks, thanks!

  47. Thank you for this excellent learning resource. I have started to include your tracks on the cheat CDs for Glor! up in Chorlton. They are a big help.
    I don't suppose you will ever be at a sufficiently loose end to do Beethoven's 9th....?

    1. Thanks Richard, glad you're finding it all helpful!
      Beethoven 9 ... I can see that happening one day! Would probably take me a while though. Thanks for the donation, really appreciate the support.
      Chorlton ... as in Manchester? Did you know that I live in Northenden? Seems like a weird coincidence!

    2. Your pieces are invaluable to the bass section of a little church in Edenfield, near Rawtenstall. Please keep up this most excellent work. Many thanks!

  48. Yep, Glor! live at St John's Church, on High Lane, M21. You'll have to drop in sometime. Small world!

  49. Thank you again for all that you do. You really help me feel less isolated as the only permanent first bass in my choir. I'm learning new (to me) bits of Faure's Requiem. I wish I'd thought of you when I was learning "I was glad.." last month.. You would have made my life a lot easier!

    1. Good to hear from you - and no problem! Sounds like the kind of person I'm looking to help. And now you know about me! If you're doing anything that I haven't uploaded then let me know and I'll add it to my to do list. Thanks!

  50. Thanks. That is making it way easier!

  51. Thank you, thank you, again, from " beattd13 May 2012 at 08:37 " . Three years ago I was in Germany, trying to do all of the 'Messiah' choruses on my own (the audition number for me was an unknown then...) I remembered these files of yours, and today I am in New Mexico (USA), hoping to get a small choir through just one Messiah chorus by Christmas time, giving them something to practice with! Much appreciated -- again!!

  52. Hi there. You are doing a great job here. Many thanks. I often fall asleep with your voice in my ears. Not that it is boring but because it is late and i listen to my parts in bed. Parts to sing that is. ;-)Anyway. Question. From what score do you sing Fauré's Requiem. The last 11 bars are different from my score. I have to sing bar81: kyrie followed by two times eleison. (Bar 85-87 an bar 89-91
    Just curious. I sing from the Bärenreiter edition. Score for choir and organ.

    Again great job!

    Kind regards,

    Paul Spaans

    1. Hi! Thanks, appreciate it. Haha, falling asleep - glad it's so soothing! Ha ha, parts.
      I used a public domain score for Faure's Requiem, from imslp. It doesn't say who the publisher is on it.
      It gets worse the earlier you go - Mozart and Handel both seem to have lots of different editions, some of them with huge differences, in notes and words!
      Thanks again,

  53. I find your stuff so useful as I wrote re the shepherds farewell. Liked the look you gave at the end_ no doubt the duff note just before the end! Now seen all the hymns and anthems ad well so that will help enormously. Will be donating donating something in gratitude philip bann

    1. Hi - thanks for getting in touch and for your kind encouragement. Glad you're finding it all helpful. I've not done any new videos since the Christmas rush, hoping to get back on the wagon soon! Many thanks,
      Jonnie (basshymn)

  54. Hi Jonnie - finding your excellent pieces on Youtube and then your website was terrific. I sing bass in a church choir and as I am only just starting to read music it's easy to be seduced by the melody. Having your bass pieces enables me to learn the bass part thoroughly whilst having the music in front of me - great job well done! David Anwyl-Hughes.

  55. Hi David - many thanks for getting in touch and for the donation - very kind. Sounds like you're exactly the person I started uploading these videos to help! Obviously, reading music is useful ... but there's nothing better than knowing what you're doing! It's amazing how much you can memorise.
    Thanks again! Jonnie (basshymn)

  56. Thanks in no small part to the help I got from your recordings, I'm now going to try out for my church's Summer Choir. I've passed the URL to your site along to a few people who have given it to their choir directors, so there are some churches here in the USA that are using your site as a resource for their choirs.
    There's one hymn that's really baffling me, and we sing it in church all the time. If you get a chance sometime, could you record the bass part for "Be Still My Soul" (tune Finlandia)?
    Thanks very much for providing this excellent resource for bass singers! - David Simpson

    1. Great! Hmm, a summer choir sounds like a good idea that I might borrow for my church!
      Yes, I know that hymn, I will record and upload as soon as possible - which might be in a few weeks time I'm afraid. Thanks for the suggestion and for getting in touch!

    2. The regular choir takes a break for the summer. The summer choir sings only twice during the summer: once in early July and once in early August. The idea is to give newcomers a taste of what it's like to sing in the choir, and maybe get some people interested in joining the regular choir.

    3. Here's the bass part to Be still my soul ... thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I've started doing something similar called "community choir" where newcomers sing with the choir, it's been a success. Very hard for people to commit long term though, understandably.

  57. Thanks so much! I struggled with "Be Still My Soul" for a long time, and just couldn't figure out how to sing it. Now after following you a few times, I can sing it just fine. The arrangement in my hymnal is pretty similar to the one you're singing. Thanks again -- David


  58. HELP ! Bass part for Joy to the World and In Bethlehem Neath Starlit Skies.
    Enjoyed learning Silent Night. You are brilliant.


  59. HELP ! Bass part for Joy to the World and In Bethlehem Neath Starlit Skies.
    Enjoyed learning Silent Night. You are brilliant.

  60. Jonnie ! Hi
    I have found the bass part for Joy to the World and also for Silent Night.
    BUT nowhere on the net is bass part available for In "Bethlehem Neath Starlit Skies".
    Can you help like poste haste !!
    Thanks for this most helpful "work" that you have taken up.
    Best wishes

    1. Hi!
      Good to know you've found them ... Hmm, sorry not to be able to help, but I won't have any time between now and Christmas to record any videos! Absolute madness over here at the moment - but hopefully moving house over the holidays and will have a dedicated office with the electric piano in to record more bass videos! Hopefully 2017 will be a bit more productive for basshymn than 2016 (haven't managed to upload anything since June, but haven't given up on it, far from it!)
      Sorry not to help this time ...

  61. I hope you get time to add some more posts in 2017. Could you help with Soul of my saviour?

  62. Uh oh! Choir Director has just added Sicut Cervus, by Palestrina. Any chance that you can add it to your list? Soon?

    1. I've added it to a list but no time at the moment, sorry!

  63. Wow, what a great blog -- thank you!
    Is there any chance you could add On This Day, the First of Days (Gott Sei Dank -- Lubeck), O Lord I Am Not Worthy (harmonization by Frank Campbell-Watson), and Father We Thank Thee Who Hast Planted (Rendez a Dieu -- Bourgeois)?

    1. Thanks! Not much time to record at the moment but I'll add them to a list.

  64. Wow, what a resource! Discovering your Youtube channels saved me from total ignominy. (I am manifestly under-qualified to sing in our church choir, and do so only for dire want of male voices.) Thank you!

    1. Very kind! You sound like the very person I intended to help when I began uploading. Thanks!

  65. You are brilliant. You help me a lot.
    I struggle with "King All-Glorious" from George M.Vail and music Chas.Wesley.
    Greetings Simon Elzinga Schettens in Holland

  66. Hi Jonnie, Any chance you could give us J S Bach, Jesu guide my footsteps ever (Christmas Oratorio).
    Best wishes, Roger

  67. Hi Jonnie, Any chance you could give us O Magnum Mysterium, Victoria.
    Best wishes, Roger

    1. Hi Roger,
      I've got plans to get back into recording videos in February ... but no time right now, I'm afraid. But one day, yes!
      Thanks, Jonnie

  68. Hello
    Thanks for the excellent site!
    I will tomorrow add your Adam lay ybounden video linked to my blog writing about carols. I do not sing myself and your video of bass part helped me greatly to appreciate the composition and pronounciation and the text. Thank you so much and keep the good work!

  69. Thanks very much! Glad you found it helpful.

  70. You are the greatest! How can I pay you for your work? I'll check your website to see if I can find a "contribute" button.

    1. Looks like you found it! Thanks - much appreciated!

  71. I precisely needed to say thanks yet again. I do not know what I might have followed in the absence of the opinions contributed by you directly on that topic. It actually was the difficult case in my opinion, however , being able to see your specialized way you managed it made me to jump with fulfillment. I will be grateful for your service and have high hopes you recognize what an amazing job your are carrying out training many others with the aid of a web site. I'm certain you've never got to know any of us. kameraverleih

  72. Your videos are a tremendous resource. I joined the church choir knowing nothing, and stumbled across your bass part to the Hallelujah Chorus, and it helped a lot. I come back every time I need to learn an old classic. Thank you, and blessings from Maryland, USA.

    1. No problem - glad to help! You’re exactly the kind of person who I was hoping to help when I started making these videos. Many thanks for getting in touch and for your donation - much appreciated.

  73. Hi there, just wondering what hymn book you use for the music and words. Here in Llanbadarn,near Aberystwyth we use Anglican Hymns Old and New.Your Baselines have been very useful to me for almost 2 months now. Occasionally we have hymns that are not in your list. Today it is 'Tis Good Lord to be Here'(Carlisle) and 'My God how Wonderful You are' (Westminster). Is it possible to make requests for these ? The same tune is covered by other hymns sometimes but it would be great to have the right words ! Many thanks for the time and effort you have put into compiling these very useful recitals.

    1. Hi - I mainly use 'Complete Anglican Hymns Old and New' ... there are lots of editions. This one is bright orange and was first published in 2000. My God how Wonderful You are is in there, but I can't see Tis Good Lord to be here in my book I'm afraid. Yes, the same tune is covered by other hymns sometimes - I haven't done many duplicates! Carlisle is also "Breathe on me breath of God" which I've done a video for. I've not done the tune Westminster though - I will do it! Thanks for pointing it out!

      No problem! I'm about to start having a few fridays free to do a bit of work at home, so will divide it between the basshymn videos and a few other projects I think! Thanks for getting in touch!

  74. Hello, just a note to say how your bass parts are still helping me with my church choir singing. Also a request. 'Glory be to Jesus' ,tune Caswell would be a helpful addition. Many thanks again for these very helpful bass parts, keep up the good work !

  75. I'm singing in a church choir which is performing Mendelssohn's Cantata "Lobgesang" "Opus 52" in English. The English version is known as "Hymn of Praise". Have you any plans for putting the bass/baritone parts for the Chorus on your website. I certainly would appreciate it very much if you would do this.

  76. Hi~~!!
    I am a new entranced Bass part choir who recently entered the Cathedral Choir.
    I am learning C.Frank's Panis Angelicus these days.
    Can I get the Bass part of your Panis Angelicus?
    Thank you very much for your help.

  77. Hello Thank you very much for your effort in helping people to sing properly in choir. May God bless you.
    Can you please add bass part of Run to the Manger by Victor C Johnson.

    1. Thank you ... I’ve never heard that one before but I have found a score and it looks within my abilities! I’m actually free on Friday so I will do it then ... find Basshymn on Facebook if you are a Facebook person and want to know when it’s up. Or subscribe on YouTube.
      I’ll reply to this too!

    2. I've made a video for Run, Shepherds!
      Hope it helps!

  78. Thank you very much for your effort. I was looking for the below song. When you get time please post a video. All the best. God bless.

  79. Hi. I write from Spain. I need to find audio from the chorus part of the opera otello for bass. Do you know where I can get it? Thank you

  80. Hi and thank you for your work, it is an incredibly useful resource to learn choral music! I am looking for the bass part for Stanford Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in C. Do you have any plans to record it? Many thanks!

    1. I second that request, when you get time of course. My 'go to' place to learn the bass parts for my church choir. Thanks so much!

    2. If you have a look on my youtube channel then it's up! Thanks for the suggestion.

  81. Hello,I just found your in yutube by chance,looking for "IF YE LOVE MI"it was very usefull
    thank you.
    BY CHANCE DO YOU HAVE OR KNOW WHERE I CAN FOUND "Hodie Beata Virgo de Palestrina Bass"
    thank you in advance

  82. Thank you so much for this!
    We only have a church choir at Christmas and as a very occasional singer I need all the practice I can get!
    4 of our songs for this year are already on your list, but if you are wondering about what to do next can I request:
    Love came down at Christmas. First tune, Gartan (Irish Traditional Air)
    Come and sing the Christmas story. Ar hyd y nos (Welsh melody)
    Come and hear the joyful singing. (Tune of Deck the halls, arranged by Willcocks)
    Again, thanks so much for what you have done here,

  83. Thank you for this, it has helped me a lot.

  84. Would you consider adding the bass part (choir, not solo) for Beethoven's Christus am Ölberge, op. 85?

  85. Any chance you could post the bass for Beautiful Savior by Christiansen

  86. Hi, how about Haydn Small Organ Mass Bass line....please!

  89. Thank you for all your amazing videos!
    They are incredibly useful to someone like me who cannot sight read but rather 'plays by ear'.
    Is there any chance you could perhaps do the bass part of Wicks's take on We Three Kings?

  90. Can you please do bass part of Born Born in Bethlehem by Douglas E Wagner.

  91. I am a beginner in harmony singing. Iam so happy to find your blog and I am sure it gives tremendous oportunity for learning music for beginners like me.

    Kindly do a bass part for the hymn

    'Sinful, sighing to the blest'

  93. Zadok the Priest ( 1 st bass part)
    Thanks a lot. I have a doubt. In the interpretation minute 2,48
    first two bars of page 23, I think it corresponds to the bass seconds.
    Please, can you confirm it for me? At least it seems that way to me. Thanks

  94. Just followed your bass part to Elgar Ave Verum. Very useful. Thanks!!

  95. Could you do Blessed be the God and Father by SS Wesley? Thanks!

    1. Hello! Thanks for the suggestion - a good one! I've got quite a good routine going at the moment so I'll make a video and I'll upload it on YouTube on 29th April.
      Don't get many comments on my basshymn blogspot any more, mainly people getting in touch through YouTube.

    2. We are due to sing this on April 23rd.. may be of help to someone else in the future ;) Thanks for considering it.

    3. It turns out we didn't sing it on the 23rd as the organist was struggling with the 2 stave music, hopefully later this year. You don't know of a version with a 3 stave organ part, do you?

  96. Have been listening to you for 10 years and have benefitted enormously. Just donated a small amount. (Ron in Perth)
