"Glory in the Meeting House" comes from Kentucky fiddler Luther Strong. It’s in the key of E minor and is played with the G string tuned down to E, so the fiddle tuning is E D A E. Strong recorded his version for Alan Lomax and the Library of Congress in 1937. Peghead Nation Old-Time Fiddle instructor Bruce Molsky knocked out a lively rendition of the tune when he was in the studio taping his Old-Time Fiddle course lessons.
