O how glorious is the kingdom

author of text
Antiphon of All Saints

Harwood’s music—particularly his organ works—lost their popularity, although in the last decade there has been renewed interest in his two organ Sonatas. Harwood’s music is, perhaps, rather typical of its era, but the craftsmanship in its construction is clear. His anthem O how glorious was originally scored for orchestra, although the organ transcription is certainly most effective.
