THE STATION AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA : Conductor, T. H. MORRISON THE Hymn of Praise, originally called a ' Symphony-Cantata,' was written in 1839-40 to celebrate the fourth centenary of the invention of printing by Gutenberg.
The composer described it as ' not a little Oratorioits plan being not dramatic but merely lyrical. Itconsists of an instrumental Symphony of three Movements, which leads to a great chorus, to which twelve [later altered to ten] other vocal pieces, solos and choruses succeed.'
The work is bound together by the recurrence of its opening melody, as a kind of ' motto,' both in the first two Movements of the Symphony and in the opening and closing choruses.
The Symphony which precedes the choral part of the work is in three Movements.
