Music Notes

Hymn 372: Praise to the Living God

This hymn draws deeply upon Jewish tradition. The Yigdal, a Jewish song of praise; its title is its first word, meaning “may He [God] be glorified.” Composed by the great medieval philosopher Maimonedes in the 12th century, it was put into verse form around 1400. This version was made in the 19th century in a cooperative effort between a German rabbi, Max Landsberg, and a Unitarian minister, William Gannett. The tune is named for Meyer Lyon, a famous operatic cantor in 18th-century London. --Donna Wessel Walker
