Chorale Prelude on Rockingham

composer
1975; after Edward Miller's adaptation on an early tune, NEH95; commissioned by OUP for the collection Chorale Preludes on English Tunes

 
Leighton composed the Chorale Prelude Rockingham in 1975 to a commission by Oxford University Press for inclusion in an organ collection Chorale Preludes on English Tunes. The hymn tune is set to the familiar words ‘When I survey the wondrous Cross’, and is used in the manner of a Bachian chorale prelude creating a sense of wonder and piety.
