"Sweet Hour of Prayer"

Title

"Sweet Hour of Prayer"

Description

This hymn, with words by William W. Walford from around 1842 and a melody by W. B. Bradbury that was first associated with the hymn in 1859, has become a staple of Protestant church services over the past century-and-a-half. This performance by David Schnaufer and Zada Law is performed on a so-called "courting dulcimer" that sports two fretboards for two people to play simultaneously.
