All things bright and beautiful

composer
arranger
author of text

 
The text of All things bright and beautiful is likewise Irish, perhaps the best-known of a number of children’s hymns written by Cecil Frances Alexander, who was born in Derry in 1818. Perhaps disapproving of W. H. Monk’s Victorian tune to which the hymn was originally sung, in 1915 Martin Shaw (friend and collaborator of Vaughan Williams) fitted the text to a sturdy English folk-tune he called Royal Oak.
