New Music week 42: AURELIA

52 in 52This week’s addition to my 52 in 52 series is a setting of the tune AURELIA (“The Church’s One Foundation”) by English organist and composer Samuel Sebastian Wesley. The tune first appeared with this text in the 1868 edition of Hymns Ancient and Modern and has since become a favorite of many churchgoers. The tune is found in both D and E-flat major, so I’ve included both keys here. Enjoy!
