Sacred Music Friday: Hail Thee Festival Day

It is still Easter, so please enjoy this Ralph Vaughan Williams classic. This version comes from St. John’s Detroit.

It should probably be no surprise given the Anglican roots of the American Episcopal Church, but this hymn appears in three different places in the 1982 Episcopal hymnal: Easter, Ascension, and Pentecost.

As I said, enjoy!
