Description

for SATB and organ Written in 1911, while Browne was at Cambridge, the work is kept in a mainly homophonic style, with the organ supporting. Tenors and basses sing four phrases in unison starting with 'He hath showed strength with his arm' and a soprano solo takes the phrase 'He rememb'ring his mercy'. The Gloria returns to the music of the opening and builds to a fine climax, as does the Nunc dimittis.show more

About William Denis Browne

William Denis Browne was a close friend of Rupert Brooke at Rugby and Cambridge, where he was Organ Scholar of Clare College. E.J Dent considered him to be 'by far the cleverest of the musicians' then at the University. He was killed in action in the Dardanelles in 1915 at the age of 26. Several songs (but none of his settings of poems by Brooke) have been recorded.show more
