SONG 13

Composer: Orlando Gibbons

Orlando Gibbons (baptised 25 December 1583 – 5 June 1625) was an English composer, virginalist and organist of the late Tudor and early Jacobean periods.

Tune Information

Title: SONG 13
Composer: Orlando Gibbons (1623)
Meter: 7.7.7.7
Incipit: 34562 23567 16653
Key: E♭ Major

Notes

Orlando Gibbons (PHH 167) composed SONG 13 in soprano and bass parts. Used as a setting for a text from the Song of Songs, the tune was published in George Withers' Hymnes and Songs of the Church (1623) as hymn number 13 (hence the tune name).

As in other hymnals, the melody is presented in a simplified isorhythmic (all equal rhythms) form; the more rhythmically varied original also had more notes and was better suited to solo singing. Sing all the stanzas in antiphonal groups with select use of part singing. Use light accompaniment.
