LANCASTER (Howard) meter

Why does the score of LANCASTER (Howard) say it is 76. 76. D, when it appears to be C.M., and every text set to it is clearly C.M.? (Not C.M.D., either.) Of course by the judicious use of slurs or ties it can be made 7.6.7.6, as pretty much any C.M. tune can be, but there's no need here, and certainly no reason to call it D. https://hymnary.org/media/fetch/117927

The PDF comes for Cyber Hymnal. The meter is mistaken. But we treat it as we would a page from a hymnal; in other words, we don't correct it.

Yet it seems unreasonable to me that things that are known to be erroneous are featured in a way that makes them appear as it were highlighted. But that point belongs in the web development forum, I guess. I know Mr. Cyber H. is an active editor here. Perhaps he could be invited to correct the error?

Mr. Cyber H. is not an active editor, but he is an active Hymnary user. He has corrected the score and I will replace it later today.

Glad it's getting fixed.
