Music Notes: Sunday, February 28 2021
Doug Starr, Director of Music & Arts
Among a multitude of hymns that we sing in worship, one is most likely transmitted from generation to generation. We teach it to our children in Sunday School and they sing it as a blessing over meals. In the past it was commonly sung by choir and congregation, concluding the offertory. The text and associated music functions in times good and bad so today we sing this hymn at the Song of Praise and all organ works are based upon it- “Praise God, from whom all blessings flow.” It is a hymn of the Protestant tradition, a German chorale text entitled, Herr Gott, Dich Loben Alle Wir, and most often sung to the Genevan Psalm tune, The Old Hundredth (Psalm 100) composed by Louis Bourgeois. Today’s organ settings include German composers, Pachelbel and Walther, and British composers, Purcell and Barnby. One of our children who sang this hymn in church and Canterbury Choir is my son, Tommy Starr whose setting we hear at the Sequence, a transcription of a movement from his Mass that makes use of the hymn tune. We love this hymn, not just for its inherent glory of text and music, but, because it refreshes so many equally glorious memories both in church and at home. Share those memories with one another on this Second Sunday of Lent.
