Father of Glory

With the academic year ending now I’ve been pootling around at the piano, experimenting with making my own musical relationship with some of my favourite words in BPW.  Here’s a setting of Keith Clements’ words ‘Father of glory, whose heavenly plan’, no.604, which I think are particularly appropriate for this week.  It’s not that I’m trying to compete with ‘Slane’ (the tune to Lord of all hopefulness) or John Barnard’s tune, you understand – I’m just experimenting with words and styles and meanings and playing around.
