Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Te Deum in G was set by Vaughan Williams in 1928. Commissioned for the enthronement of Cosmo Lang as Archbishop of Canterbury on 4 December, this latter piece rolls with confidence from the outset, a strong declamatory unison leading to an antiphonal representation of the angelic chorus before the opening material is transformed into a prayerful, supplicatory ending.
