This index lists the tune name given to each hymn in the hymnbook. Traditionally a hymn tune is somewhat independent of any particular text.
Texts and tunes of the same meter may be interchanged. For this reason, each tune in the hymnbook has its own name, separate from the title of the text.
The tune name—usually a single word or short phrase—may come from a family name, a place, or a word relating to the text for which it was created.
