This is an old melody that I harmonised for SATB, and would be suitable for performance as a vocal ''Grace'' to be sung before a meal!

When I was a Student Bandmaster at the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall, and a member of the Ralph Vaughan Williams Ministry of Defence Class of 1988, we always sung the grace before dinner nights, in a beautiful setting by the late Gordon Reynolds, also based on this melody.

The keyboard part is to aid rehearsal if required.

If you need the lyrics please let me know.

While a member of the R.V. Williams Class, I had the honour to be awarded the Commandant's First prize for the ''Best Quick March'' of the 1988 R.V.Williams Class. The grand prize of £10.00, was awarded by Ursula Vaughan Williams, the widow of Ralph.

The march entitled ''Class of 88'', will be posted on the site after Xmas, and is now the official march of the ''Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary''.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
