Genre: Hymn
This is beautiful hymn is uploaded at the request of our member, Schwebung.

The performance is dedicated to you, Scott, and to Edo ("EdoL") who was kind enough to send me the music. You can also find a fine performance of this same hymn, uploaded by EdoL here:

The wonderful text was written by John Mason (1646-1694) who was the Rector of Water-Stratford in Buckinghamshire when he wrote his volume The Songs of Praise (1683), which included the poems from which this hymn is drawn. It is thought that his hymns were among the first to be used in the Church of England. The splendid music was composed by Ken Naylor (1931-1991), whose career was the teaching of music in public schools and who was at that time music master at the Leys School, Cambridge, wrote this tune which immediately received wide acclaim. He named it after Coe Fen, an open space near the school.

I have played this pretty much "as written," changing registrations as suits the text and observing "grammatical phrasing" where appropriate.

There is one full verse of introduction.
