Mailbag: “Weisse Flaggen”

November 2, 2006

Dear Michael,

I listened to the Fisk at Fuhrman and the Concertato by Ferguson When the Morningstars Together. What is the name of the hymn tune for that piece?

Curt Flowers
City of Parchment, Michigan

Dear Curt,

I asked John Ferguson, composer of the Concertato on When the Morningstars Together. Here’s his response:

“Actually When the Morningstars Together comes from the Presbyterian Hymnal. The tune is a German one - WEISSE FLAGGEN, composer unknown, source a German hymnal from Cologne, 1741.”

So, there you have it.
