Sir Hubert Parry was the son of an artist, married nobility hence his baronetcy, and became professor of music at Oxford University, England. He wrote four symphonies that lay forgotten till recently, but is renowned amongst Englishmen as the composer of "Jerusalem", the coronation processional "I was glad" based on some verses of Psalm 122, and he was the composer of the hymn tune "Repton"
These fine works are classics in their own right, but one felt it was too hard to hear the words in the tumultuous orchestration so I have reset these works for SSAATTBB 'a cappella' choir with organ interlude. These are not arrangements. Rather, they are radically new. Without doubt the purists shall wince, but I think my treatment of these works is a vast improvement.
