Te Deum in G

1928; composed for the enthronement of the Dr C G Lang as Archbishop of Canterbury, 4 December 1928
author of text
Book of Common Prayer

The Te Deum in G was set by Vaughan Williams in 1928. Commissioned for the enthronement of Cosmo Lang as Archbishop of Canterbury on 4 December, this latter piece rolls with confidence from the outset, a strong declamatory unison leading to an antiphonal representation of the angelic chorus before the opening material is transformed into a prayerful, supplicatory ending.

Le Te Deum in G, mis en musique par Vaughan Williams, fut commandé pour l’intronisation de Cosmo Lang à la dignité d’archevêque de Cantorbéry, le 4 décembre 1928, cette pièce retentit de confiance, d’emblée: un puissant unisson déclamatoire débouche sur une représentation antiphonée du chœur angélique, avant que le matériau d’ouverture ne soit mué en une conclusion déprécatoire, suppliante.

Français: Hypérion

Im 1928 komponierte Vaughan Williams das Te Deum in G. Dieses letztere Werk wurde anlässlich der Inthronisation von Cosmo Lang als Erzbischof von Canterbury am 4. Dezember in Auftrag gegeben und kommt von Anfang an sehr selbstbewusst daher; ein starkes deklamatorisches Unisono führt zu einer antiphonischen Darstellung des Engelschors bevor das Anfangsmaterial in ein bittendes, flehendes Ende umgewandelt wird.
