Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Scored for Organ

Emma Lou Diemer is widely recognized as one of the leading women composers of the late 20th century. In this publication she applies her unique compositional style to two well-known hymns. LASST UNS ERFREUEN is a celebratory setting with a wide variety of harmonic colors. The work is a free setting of the hymn, with motives from it being used rather than complete statements.

Her set of Variations on ADORO TE DEVOTE is a meditative, expressive setting of the Benedictine plainsong. The variations vary from quiet to more intense, with the central variation a moving canon between the pedal and upper voice subsiding to a prayerful ending.
