The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended – St Clement

The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended represents (at its best) the formerly much-despised tradition of Victorian hymnody. The composer, C. C. Scholefield, was an amateur—a clergyman who was Chaplain of Eton in the 1880s—yet who could resist his mellifluous and slightly waltz-like melody? And Ellerton’s text, if less than Miltonic, nevertheless painted its images memorably on a global canvas extending as widely as the British Empire itself. The hymn first became popular when it was used at Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, and only began to pass away, like earth’s proud empires, when the institution of Anglican Evensong began to fade in the 1960s.
