A picture inspired by one of my favourite hymns, “All Creatures Of Our God And King”, the original text of which has been attributed to St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) and which was translated into English by William H. Draper (1855-1933). The hymn is believed to be based upon Psalm 148, Verse 13 of which is superimposed on the picture. Enjoy this rousing version sung by The Mormon Tabernacle Choir accompanied by The Orchestra At Temple Square.
The music was originally published in “Geistliche Kirchengesaenge” in Cologne, Germany in 1623. The modern arrangement is by the composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958).
