    WOO-WOO!! THIS IS MY 200th POST.

    OK, now that I'm calmed down...

    The North Carolina Lodge Manual by Charles F. Bahnson, PM, written 1892, gives music for the procession of the craft in the Second Section of the Master Masons Degree, as Pleyel's Hymn. I am not familiar with this piece, as I have never heard the Craft sing it. Most Lodges are silent after the conversation between SKoI and HKoT, ours usually sings, "Nearer, My God to Thee," but the only reason anyone can give is, "We've ALWAYS done it that way!" [I'm convinced you've never heard that in YOUR Lodge:D]
    I only found one acapella version on YouTube, but I am not able to make it out well enough to try to bring it to my Lodge and the other ones in my district.
    Does anyone know a more distinct version, instrumental preferred, so I could learn the tune?

    TIA
    S&F

    I have the words of Pleyel's Hymn if you want them.
    Tune is like a funereal dirge.

    Thanks, Brother! This is what I've been looking for! I sang along, using the words from my 'Bahnson.'

    You're welcome Brother Bob! music is my profession, so masonically significant tunes are my forte (if you'll excuse the pun).

    I'm interested. I don't know if our musician has it or not. Long story, but he was out of commission for a while due to recovering from a serious car accident. He wasn't there the last few MM degrees we did, so it was sung acapella.
