Let all mortal flesh keep silence

17-th century French carol
author of text
translated from the Liturgy of St James

The text of Let all mortal flesh keep silence is taken from the fourth-century Orthodox Liturgy of St James of Jerusalem; Gerard Moultrie’s verse translation was published in 1864 when there was renewed interest in early Christian rites, awakened doubtless by the Oxford Movement. Vaughan Williams included it in The English Hymnal, set to the French carol melody Jésus Christ s’habille en pauvre, an unlikely but inspired union.
