RUSTINGTON

Composer: C. Hubert H. Parry

Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, 1st Baronet (27 February 1848 – 7 October 1918) was an English composer, teacher and historian of music. Parry's first major works appeared in 1880. As a composer he is best known for the choral song "Jerusalem", the coronation anthem "I was glad" and the hymn tune "Repton", which sets the words "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind". He was director of the Royal College of Music from 1895 until his death and was also professor of music at the University of Oxford from 1900 to 1908. He also wrote several books about music and music history. Some contemporaries rated him as the finest English composer since Henry Purcell, but his academic duties prevented him from devoting all his energies to composition.… Go to person page >

Notes

C. Hubert H. Parry's (PHH 145) RUSTINGTON was first published in the Westminster Abbey Hymn Book (1897) as a setting for Benjamin Webb's "Praise the Rock of Our Salvation." The tune is named for the village in Sussex, England, where Parry lived for some years and where he died. This is such a distinguished melody that it is probably best to sing all the stanzas in unison, although confident choirs will want to sing the harmony of the middle stanzas. Organists, use bright mixtures. The tune AUSTRIA is most commonly associated with this text, as it was in earlier editions of the Psalter Hymnal. In 1985, however, the synod of the Christian Reformed Church rejected the use of AUSTRIA in its hymnal because Dutch immigrants and Jewish Christians associate that tune with its use by Nazis during World War II. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
