All Creatures of Our God and King
Text by St. Francis of Assisi, music by 17th Century German tune.
SSAATTBB and organ.
This is much more challenging than the other hymn arrangements here, but it would very rewarding for a large, capable choir. The harmonies by Gustav Holst are elegant and beautiful and I love the ending. You may need to remind the singers that the word fortissmo is not a license to blast out ugly sounds at the end of a song.
