alternate tune names

You are here

I recently search the Hymnary for the tune "Sacred Throne", and the link in the search results took me to the page for "Martyrdom".  I was briefly confused until I remembered that the tune was known by these two names.  I did not know that the tune has also been dubbed "Avon", which prompted me to look for a list of names for the tune, but I could find no such list on the Tune Authority page; indeed, the page does not contain the phrase "sacred throne".  Clearly the database knows about the alternate names, so why can't the tune page list them?  I would find this very useful.

In some cases we have added the alternate tune names, and I added them as a note to MARTYRDOM. Where SACRED THRONE is used in the Hymnary database, iit is used in parentheses: "MARTYRDOM (AVON, SACRED THRONE)" An automatically generated list of alternate tune names probably would not be able to extract the alternate tunes enclosed in parentheses.
