Thanks Jack for posting this video and inspiring me to check into the history of this little tune............when I did I was amazed that it has been used as a hymn tune as well in  mass choral settings!    For anyone interested, here is a link to a neat site with some great video and tune variations.

Jack, that's awesome.  Beautiful instrument and sound.

I wasn't aware of the bit of history on the tune you included at the end- cool!

Thanks for posting this, a delightful video and a help to anyone thinking about getting a scheitholt type box zither/dulcimer.
