This noble tune is set to two fine texts in the New English Hymnal and the last verses of both of these hymns are included with this arrangement.

It is possible to perform this arrangement in two ways:

Either/

with the sopranos singing the descant, the rest of the choir and the congregation singing the melody, and the organ playing the accompaniment

Or/

with all the singers singing the melody and the organ playing the accompaniment.

This score may be downloaded free of charge. If you use it, please be so kind as to let me know by email as I like to keep a track of where my works are performed.

Do have a look at my other hymn arrangements on this site. I welcome commissions for arrangements, as well as for original compositions.

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

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

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.
