Odd meters stop me in my tracks, no matter where it comes from. On this positive day, somehow, I found an odd metered hymn, 'How Deep the Fathers Love For Us'. This contemporary Christian hymn by Stuart Townend, an English worship leader and it is in 5/4. Yes, a hymn in 5/4 is being sung by many...... I wonder if they know.
Now, this is not my first choice in genre, Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' is more my speed, but I can appreciate how smooth his vocals fit into 5, whether I resonate with the lyrics or not. So, whatever your spiritual perspective is, this is genre-biased-free odd meter speculation and a hymn in 5/4 is pretty cool.
Oddly in all forms,
