Tune Information
Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1872-1958
Meter: 10.10.10 with alleluias
Key: G Major
Notes: Ps. 84 is usually associated with introspective and quiet strength. The association of the tune SINE NOMINE with the text “For All the Saints” suggests a different interpretation. In lofty tones we imagine the heavenly dwelling of God, our final home. This setting would be particularly appropriate at funerals or other celebrations of our hope of eternal life with God.
