I found this community a while ago, but forgot to introduce myself.

I'm Peter. I'm an engineering grad student in the DC area, and I started singing sacred harp about a year and a half ago.

But the real reason I posted this now, is that ever since the sing a few days ago, a song has been stuck in my head, but only a couple measures of it. I don't remember any of the words, so I can't look it up. So, for the sake of my sanity, if a minor scale is "LA Mi Fa So La fa so la", the alto line at the very end is something along the lines of "La_ La So Fa So La_ La la so la La_ La So Fa Mi LA__" Meanwhile, the other three parts have one at a time started singing their last notes, which in the case of the basses, is a "LA____________". Does anyone know what song this is from?

I think...

hello! I think that might be #196, Alabama. All the parts run down the same ending, in sequence, with altos going last. Angels in shining order stand, Around the Savior's throne; They bow with rev'rence at His feet, And make His glories known. Those happy spirits sing His praise, To all eternity, But I can sing redeeming grace, For Jesus died for me. Hope that's it! Not remembering which song is stuck in your head can be extreeeeeemely frustrating! - cath

Even if Cath isn't right, that's a really good song, so you should get it stuck in your head.
