Metrical Index

This is a listing of the tunes  to which a given text may be sung. They are arranged  by a complex- looking series of numbers  which simply represent  the number of syllables per line in the text/poem, which in turn should match the number of beats in the corresponding line of the tune.  This is most helpful if a user likes the words,  but wants to look for a different tune.  Warning:  always try singing such a change out loud to make certain the emphasis falls on the proper syllable.
