This week's release, A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief, is famous for having been sung by John Taylor in Carthage jail just before Joseph and Hyrum Smith were murdered on June 27, 1844.
But did you know that the tune Taylor sang in Carthage is not the same as the one in our hymnbook with which we're all now familiar? Check out the two articles below for more info. And I'd love to hear if any of you know where we could listen to or see the sheet music for the original tune as sung by John Taylor.
On a related note, I'm excited to see that the Church has announced today that it too will be releasing new content each Friday through the end of the year. Who else will be releasing new content each Friday?
