could it be that the track is playing backwards? or maybe multiple layers?
the iPhone app. shazam is amazing. It identified the track as 'Greenewich' from the album 'southern journey volume 9'.
bhance: for those wondering - 'Shazam' is an iPhone app that uses sonic fingerprinting to ID songs.
I don't know if it helps, but my father identified the track as 'Sacred Harp'. Good Luck!
I don't speak Finnish but the music certainly sounds like gospel. I would suggest it is from Finlandia the tone poem by Sibelius. It sounds very like "be still my soul" in style and Sibelius fits in with the whole Lutheran theme. http://christianmusic.suite101.com/article.cfm/be_still_my_soul_k_von_schlegel
if it helps at all, gracenotes autotags the song as: Greenwich - Alabama Sacred Harp Convention its from 1977, and composed by Daniel Read.
The song is shapenote music. The first part of the song you hear is them singing the notes (fa, so, la, etc.) and then it goes into words. Does anyone know anything about shapenotes? Maybe there is a code in the notes.
Bryan, I think that the song might be referencing the book A sermon preached at the court at Greenewich the XXIIII. of May, 1591 by Geruase Babington. http://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/3434631, I have been trying to find a summary or abstract about the book so I still don't know what it is about maybe the orphange can enlight us a little?
This is "greenwich" from the album "southern journey volume 9" Southern Journey, Vol. 9: Harp Of A Thousand Strings - All Day Singing From The Sacred Harp Can be listened to on here http://www.amazon.com/Southern-Journey-Vol-Thousand-Strings/dp/B0000002UQ
