This octet for 4 Bb trumpets, F horn, 2 trombones, and tuba is based on a traditional English tune, the origins of which are uncertain, but is today best-known as the source tune for the popular hymn The Gift of Love, with words based on I Cor. 13.
Several other lesser-known hymns also use this tune, including An Upper Room Did Our Lord Prepare and When Love is Found. It is sometimes heard as an alternative tune for When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.
Few will recognize the somewhat odd title of this tune, and since song titles are not subject to copyright, it should be identified as "The Gift of Love," when it is played in church services or on concerts.
