A collection of four English hymns/chorales arranged for Brass Quartet.

The Day You Gave Us , Lord, is ended St. Clement:

St Clement, in 98. 98. meter, is a popular tune to John Ellerton’s hymn The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, is Ended. The tune is generally credited to the Rev. Clement Cotteril Scholefield (1839–1904).[1] It first appeared in Sir Arthur Sullivan’s Church Hymns with Tunes (1874). The Rev. Scholefield was born at Edgbaston, Birmingham[1] and was the youngest son of MP William Scholefield, MP for Birmingham.

However, in 2000 the Rev. Ian Bradley, reader in Church History and Practical Theology at St Andrews University and author of The Daily Telegraph Book of Hymns, wrote of a connection between Sullivan, who composed the music for Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operas and many hymns, among other works both sacred and secular, and Rev. Scholefield. "The two men were good friends while Sullivan was organist at St Peter’s Church, South Kensington, from 1867 to 1872". In his book, Bradley writes:

In an article in the Hymn Society Bulletin in 1994 Mervyn Horder, himself a hymn-tune composer, suggested that ’Sullivan almost certainly had a larger hand in St Clement than has been or can ever definitely be, credited to him.’ His starting-point was the fact that this tune stands head and shoulders above the quality of Scholefield’s other work. None of the 41 other hymn-tunes penned by this self-taught musician show anything like the craftsmanship, originality or melodic sweep of St Clement.

Onward Christian Soldiers:

Sing Praise to the Lord (Laudate Dominum):

"Abide with Me":

is a Christian hymn by Scottish Anglican Henry Francis Lyte most often sung to English composer William Henry Monk’s tune entitled "Eventide".

Lyte wrote the poem in 1847 and set it to music while he lay dying from tuberculosis; he survived only a further three weeks after its completion.

Popular use[edit] Religious services:

The hymn is popular across many denominations, and was said to be a favourite of King George V and Mahatma Gandhi. It is also often sung at Christian funerals. In the aftermath of the sinking of RMS Titanic, survivors reported that the Titanic’s band played the hymn as the ship was sinking, although detailed studies have identified other songs played by the band.

Military services:

The hymn is sung at the annual Anzac Day services in Australia and New Zealand, and in some Remembrance Day services in Canada[7] and the United Kingdom. It is also played by the combined bands of the Indian Armed Forces during the annual Beating Retreat ceremony held on 26 January at Vijay Chowk, New Delhi, which officially marks the end of Republic Day celebrations. A choral version of this hymn has been arranged by Moses Hogan.

Music:

Phrases of the finale of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 9 are often noted for their similarity to Monk’s Eventide.

Thelonious Monk recorded an instrumental version of Abide with Me with his jazz septet as the first track of the 1957 album Monk’s Music. In 2006, two different takes of the recording were released on The Complete 1957 Riverside Recordings, an anthology of Thelonious Monk’s work with John Coltrane.

The hymn was also set to music around 1890 by the American composer Charles Ives, and was published in his collection Thirteen Songs in 1958, four years after his death.

Doris Day recorded this song on her 1962 album "You’ll Never Walk Alone."

The pipes and drums of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards played the hymn in their 2007 album, Spirit Of The Glen.

Hayley Westenra recorded the hymn on her third international album, Treasure, and performed it live at various sporting events, including the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final in August 2009.

An instrumental version appears on the 2009 David Friesen David Friesen release, Vanishing the Darkness.

In 2013, Joe McElderry and the Royal Mail Choir recorded the song, and it was released as a charity single on 14 April 2013, raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. This version reached number 19 in the UK indie charts.

At Portora Royal School (the school Henry Francis Lyte attended) the song has become the school’s victory song and is sung at the annual Portora Remembrance Service

In sport:

Since the 1927 FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Cardiff City, the first and last verses of the hymn are traditionally sung at the FA Cup Final before the kick-off of the match, at around 2.45pm BST.

It also featured on the B-side of the The Christians, Holly Johnson, Paul McCartney, Gerry Marsden and Stock Aitken Waterman charity single "Ferry Cross the Mersey" in 1989, which was recorded in memory of the Hillsborough disaster victims.

The hymn has been sung prior to the kick-off at every Rugby League Challenge Cup final since 1929, the first final to be held at Wembley Stadium.

"Abide with Me" was also sung at the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, performed by Scottish singer Emeli Sandé.
