Description: The hymn tune GRAF is derived in part from the tune WÜRTEMBURG by Johann Rosenmüller (ca. 1619-1684), and it has been named GRAF in honor of Richard and Melita Graf of River Falls, Wisconsin. The Alto part, when transposed up an octave, becomes the second descant; additionally, the Alto part was written so that it moves in stepwise motion throughout.
