All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name: My First YouTube post of a hymnal song


  
Dear friends of Top Catholic Songs: This is where it all began – my idea to share "covers" of popular Catholic-Christian songs. I uploaded this to YouTube on July 19, 2011. "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name" is hymn no. 1 from The Radio Hymnal, published in 1927 by Henry Field Seed Co., Radio Station KFNF, Shenandoah, Iowa. It was an old standard even at that time, the tune having been written by Oliver Holden and the lyrics by Edward Perronet. In my a cappella garage session, I took some liberties with the rhythm by the time I got to the 5th take. Don't sing it like this at church. Please note that this song is in the Public Domain.
