Program Notes

Long tones, dynamic contrasts and long flowing lines make Claude T. Smith's chorale setting of this beautiful Old English melody an outstanding warm-up or concert selection.

- Program Note by publisher


All Things Bright and Beautiful is an Anglican hymn, also sung in many other Christian denominations. The words are by Cecil Frances Alexander and were first published in her Hymns for Little Children.

The melody originated from the 17th-century English country dance tune, The 29th of May. This was later adapted by Martin Shaw and William Henry Monk. There have also been other adaptations, such as a full choral piece by John Rutter. The chorus has been recommended as a Christian song for children to learn, even for children as young as five years of age.
