I thought I’d try my hand at setting this rather lovely 19th century poem of praise and thanksgiving. It is, of course, already well known in several different musical guises as hymns and anthems. It re-works, to some degree, material used in my earlier "Let us see" (Psalm 85) - so, if you like "For the Beauty", have a look at "Let us see" as well.

The mp3 recording is taken from a CD made in August 2012 by the Langford Singers, conducted by the composer, with organist Andrew Daldorph.
