Bring flowers of the rarest

evelyn @ 6:05 pm

Every so often I have a look at the statistics showing how many people have accessed this blog, and what they were looking for. Never fear, no-one is identified (more’s the pity – I’d love to know who everyone is), but there is one table showing the search phrases (usually Google) which brought some people here. Two or three surfers have put in the phrase ‘chords for bring flowers of the rarest’ – or it may be the same person three times – but obviously someone is wanting to celebrate the month of Mary in traditional style.

So here they are, the chords for Bring flowers of the rarest. This is taken from the Organ Learning Project book of hymns, which I’ll blog about at some later stage.

  2. I put some chords at http://forthinpraise.co.uk/blog/?page_id=543 in 2010, and I think they are still there. It’s a very easy version in G major, maybe too easy for a skilled guitarist!

  3. I feel A major works best as stated by another poster. It is written in Bb. Wanted to make sure I had all the right chords that I put down.

  4. Thanks for your comment, Marty. Yes, I prefer A major as it’s best for the voice in such a wide-ranging melody, and it suits the guitar. The G major version is handy for organs with a transposing facility – it’s an easy key, and you can turn the pitch up – to the original Bb, if you like.
