Tedium?

Far from it. A majestic setting by the under-rated Irishman Charles Villiers Stanford of one of the most famour of all hymns, the Te Deum ("We praise thee, O God"), written  in the 4th century by an early church father.



This will conclude the Cecilian Singers' concert this Thursday evening in Wan Chai.

The 17th April entry features a good old-fashioned Dorset folk song as secular, if not atheistic - can't vouch for that - as they come.
