Chorale Prelude on Croft’s 136th tune – Charles H.H. Parry (1848-1918)

Regarded as the finest English composer since Henry Purcell by Charles Villiers Stanford, Charles Hubert Hastings Parry (1848-1918) is well known for ‘I Was Glad’ (the Coronation Anthem, recently sung at the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and even more recently sung at St Francis, Paddington!). His tune ‘Jerusalem’ originally setting the words of William Blake’s ‘And did those feet in ancient time’ is often sung in church, as well as his hymn tune to Dear Lord and Father of mankind (Repton).

His students included Ralph Vaughan Williams (Rise heart, thy Lord is risen), Gustav Holst (The Planets) and John Ireland (Greater Love).
