In honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, this month's free tab is an arrangement of  "Let All Things Now Living", written by Katherine Kennicott Davis as a choral anthem in 1923.  Early in her career, Davis published under the pseudonym John Cowley in order to be taken more seriously in the male-dominated music publishing industry.   Later in her life, she became of professor of music theory and composition at Wellesley College, and eventually at the New England Conservatory of Music.  When health issues forced her to retire from the classroom, she returned to composing.   She is credited with over 800 compositions in her lifetime, both vocal and instrumental pieces, including anthems, operas, and cantatas.   She is best remembered today for her popular Christmas song "Carol of the Drum", which is also known as "The Little Drummer Boy".

"Let All Things Now Living" has become most popular during the Thanksgiving season.   Rather than creating a new melody for this piece, Davis paired it with the buoyant Welsh folk tune, Llwyn Onn, which is most recognized for its use with the song "The Ash Grove". The roots of this melody may be found in the eighteenth century. Arrangements published in England in the early and mid-nineteenth century increased its popularity in Europe.  Davisís use of the tune brought it to broader denominational prominence in the United States.

 Here is a link to a YouTube video of this hymn being sung by the Lebanon County Youth Chorus.

This is a 2-part arrangement, melody and bass, so find a playing partner, and get it ready for your Thanksgiving celebrations.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

In music and friendship,

--Tull

Lyrics

 

Let all things now living a song of thanksgiving
To God the creator triumphantly raise.
Who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,
Who guided us on to the end of our days.
His banners are o'er us, His light goes before us,
A pillar of fire shining forth in the night.
'Till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished
As forward we travel from light into light.
 

His law he enforces, the stars in their courses
And sun in its orbit obediently shine;
The hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,
The deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.
We too should be voicing our love and rejoicing;
With glad adoration a song let us raise
'Till all things now living unite in thanksgiving:
"To God in the highest, Hosanna and praise!"
