- The following article is from the Psalter Hymnal Handbook.
LAUDATE DOMINUM (Latin words for the opening phrase of Psalm 150) comes from the end of the anthem "Hear My Words, O Ye People" by C. Hubert H. Parry, an anthem he composed in 1894 for a festival of the Salisbury Diocesan Choral Association. Parry's tune was set to Baker's text in the 1916 Supplement of Hymns Ancient and Modern, replacing an earlier LAUDATE DOMINUM by Henry J. Gauntlett for Baker's text. Parry's tune is an inspired melody from a great tune writer who rarely came to church but who produced some of the best hymn tunes in the later Victorian era.
