HAWAII - MISSIONARIES. WILLIAM TAPPAN. - Wake Isles of the South.
n.p. n.d. [c1822-33?]. Nineteenth century manuscript of the music and lyrics on two conjugate leaves, 102x190mm. ¶ Tappan wrote the lyrics to be sung at the departure of the missionaries - the Stewarts and Betsey Stockton - to Hawaii in 1822 and William Hauser wrote the music that is printed in the 'Southern Harmony' (1835) and associated with the song now. But the music here is close but not quite identical to that which appeared, unattributed, in 'Spiritual Songs for Social Worship' (1833). Which is also the only printed hymnal I found that includes the last verse in this manuscript, "And thou Obookiah, now sainted above" - referring to Henry Obookiah or Opukahaia, the pioneering Hawaiian convert. Before we label this as a copy direct from the book I should point out that, apart from small differences in notation, the time signature is different and the verses seem to be arranged differently. This appears to the tenor or treble part written out specifically for performance on some occasion.AUD 150.00 [Appr.: EURO 106 US$ 114.36 | £UK 91.75 | JP¥ 12732] Book number 9238
