Program Notes

This famous hymn (We Gather Together) has been skillfully arranged by Andrew Glover. An opening chorus featuring clarinets and horns is followed by a woodwind choir, and concludes with an impressive finale.

- Program Note from score

We Gather Together is a Christian hymn of Dutch origin written in 1597 by Adrianus Valerius as Wilt heden nu treden to celebrate the Dutch victory over Spanish forces in the Battle of Turnhout. It was originally set to a Dutch folk tune. In the United States, it is popularly associated with Thanksgiving Day and is often sung at family meals and at religious services on that day.
