- Information on Tune Metres
- The tune metre is calculated by counting the
number of digits in each line not enclosed in brackets or parentheses.
The result is similar to the conventional designation of text
metres in English-language hymnals, except that 0 is added for
a line of music that repeats a previously sung text line.
- Thus, the tune metre of the following tune:
- is 188.8.131.52.0. This means that the text metre
for which it is designed is 184.108.40.206, or Common Metre, but it
provides for a repeat of the last line.
