Bender: Down Ampney (Hymn 516)
Paraphrase of Psalm 98 by Erik Routley (1917-1982)
(Simplified Anglican Chant, Robert Knox Kennedy)
Trivia: The tune for this hymn was written by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1906 for The English Hymnal, of which Vaughan Williams was the musical editor. It is one of several tunes he wrote for that hymnal, including Sine nomine, the tune for “For all the saints.” The name of this tune, ‘Down Ampney,’ comes from the village in Goucestershire where Vaughan Williams was born.
