* Many ancient hymns and chants don't even use time signatures. As a result, some have really weird settings where each line might have, say, 4½ beats. Most hymnals today will alter the rhythms of such hymns (such as "O Come O Come Emmanuel" and "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God") to make them 4/4 to make them easier for modern congregations to sing. The uncommon-time versions are usually called "isometric", and the straight 4/4 ones "rhythmic".

(Even so, the "rhythmic" version of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" still usually involves at least one bar of 6/4.)



** "Look There! The Christ, Our Brother Stands", by John Bennett, has two melodies in the Episcopalian ''The Hymnal 1982''. The first tune, by William Albright, has the right hand playing an 11/8 ostinato over a verse that starts in 5/4 but switches to 4/4 partway through.
