Hymn, ' Once to every man and nation ' (Songs of Praise, No. 178)
'Hymn, '0 God of Earth and Altar' (Songs of Praise. No. 177)
' When through the whirl of wheels, and engines humming,
Patiently powerful for the sons of men,
Peals like a trumpet promise of His coming
Who in the clouds is pledged to come again :
'When through the night of furnace fires flaring.
Shooting out tongues of flame like leaping blood,
Speak to the heart of Love, alive and daring.
Sing of the boundless energy of God.
' When in the depths the patient miner striving
Feels in his arms the vigour of the Lord,
Strikes for a kingdom and his King's arriving.
Holding his pick more splendid than the sword ;
' When on the sweat of labour and its sorrow,
Toiling in the twilight flickering and dim,
Flames out the sunshine of the great tomorrow,
When all the world looks up because of Him—
' Then will He come with meekness for His glory,
God in a workman's jacket as before,
Living again the eternal Gospel story,
Sweeping the shavings from His workshop floor.'

STRING ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE titles are (1) In the Popular Style (the melody is not Grieg's own); (2) Cowkeeper's
Tune and Peasant Dance. This begins with some of those bell effects we remember in such a Pianoforte piece as Grieg's Bell Tones, the last in the set of Lyric Pieces, Op. 54.
IN this four-Movement work, produced at the Hereford (Three Choirs) Festival in 1912, Bantock has used American Negro and popular songs. In the Second Movement he uses Way down upon de Swannee Ribber, and in the Fourth Yankee Doodle, with Johnny, get your gun.
