BALTIMORE (1796) is a local favorite!  We first encountered it in the appendix of Tom Malone’s four-shape edition of Ingalls’ Christian Harmony.  It was originally published in the second edition of The Village Harmony, or Youth’s Assistant to Sacred Music, which is our source for typesetting the song.  BALTIMORE is #7196 in the Hymn Tune Index and was probably written by Jeremiah Ingalls.

Here’s a recording from the Keystone Sacred Harp Convention.
