Harvest Hymn
composer

Harvest Hymn  [2'56]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Harvest Hymn is a totally original composition and an elaboration on an early melody called ‘Hymny Tune’ representing the apotheosis of hymn-like melodies. Originally conceived for ‘elastic-scoring’, this piano version can also be played simultaneously with all the other versions. This is Grainger’s only use of the word ‘hymn’ as part of a title; the result is a sumptuous piece that tugs at the heart-strings.
