    Is the tune FREE GRACE, which was sung to And Can It Be? printed in the 1742 Foundry book that is for sale? I am eager to see the tune the Wesleys chose for that text.

  2. Carlton R. Young says:

    The first musical setting for ‘And can it be that I should gain,’ was CRUCIFIXION TUNE, adapted from Samuel Akeroyd’s “An Hymn for Good Friday,” in Henry Playford’s, The Divine Companion, London, [1701] 1722, where It is scored for melody and bass. CRUCIFIXION TUNE in Foundery Collection 1742, pages 25-25, is an adaptation of that melody, and is referenced to the full text of the hymn pp. 117-19 in Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1739. It may one of several attempts from 1739 to 1742 to set Charles’ Wesley conversion hymn.
