St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. I plan to play Be Thou My Vision on my penny whistle at my local church on the preceding Sunday to celebrate the day and the man. Can anyone suggest other Irish-themed hymns that would be appropriate for St. Patrick's Day?

Dan, have you found the Praise Exchange forum? It is locked now (due to an overload of spammers using it as a dump) but you can still read the posts and find pdfs of the music to download. Most of the music is still available for listening. (Some links are defunct.) In that forum are a few hymns you might fit your request: The King of Love My Shepherd Is (same tune as St. Columba); Come Thou Almighty King; and Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing. Be Thou My Vision is also in that forum. I did test the pdf links for the first three songs mentioned and they worked.

Hope this helps. :)

What Wondrous Love is a favorite of mine. I think that's on the Exchange as well.

The Exchange link was bad, but I found this:

Tommy, my wife suggested the same tune. If both of you are in agreement on this topic, I can't go wrong in playing it. Thank you.

Good indication you're on the right track! =D> :thumbsup:

If you can manage a recording we'd love to hear it.
