Directed by Andrew Carwood, the St Paul’s Cathedral Choir performed I love all beauteous things as part of the National Service of Thanksgiving whichtook place on at 11am on 10 June 2016 in the presence of HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. At the service the Archbishop of Canterbury gave the address and the Prime Minister read a lesson. 


Judith Weircomments:
'It is a particular honour to contribute new music for this great occasion, and a pleasure to write a choral version of Robert Bridges’ beautiful verse.'

COMPOSER’S NOTE
At the suggestion of Michael Hampel, Precentor of St Paul’s Cathedral, I have set words by Robert Bridges, who was Poet Laureate from 1913–1930. Bridges was an outstanding humanitarian and writer, whose poetry hasinspired me before in The Voice of Desire, a song-cycle for mezzo-soprano and piano. This short, fast-tempo setting aims to emulate the swift, fleet-footed rhyme and metre of the two-verse poem, with its unobtrusive but tellingreference to ‘man in his hasty days’.
J.W.

Commissioned by the Chapter of St Paul’s Cathedral to mark the 90th birthday of HM The Queen, generously supported by the Boltini Trust. Performed at theNational Service of Thanksgiving for HM The Queen’s birthday at St Paul’s Cathedral, London, on Friday 10th June 2016 in the presence of HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
