This stunning setting of the hymn "God of Our Fathers" is presented as a chorale prelude beginning with a mournful and powerful opening, and moving through several major and minor keys before its first full presentation in a traditional and quiet rendition. A development section follows that brings the piece to its final iteration featuring fanfares and flourishes before reaching a stirring conclusion.
