Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour

Charles Herbert Kitson’s Elementary Harmony, published in the 1920s, remains one of the best introductions to the art and craft of harmonising melodies. His skill touches every bar of Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour, an elegant setting of an old French melody that initially found favour as a drinking song after its arrival in England around 1700. Daniel Hyde’s subtle elaborations and revisions have enriched Kitson’s arrangement without diminishing its allure.
