You were fine. As you say, you were pressed for time. You should link us to more of you playing, perhapsn when you've a bit more time.

I love All Saints. I grew up with it being sung to Who are these like stars appearing?, which is ony of my favourite hymns for the feast of All Saints. I also used it for one of my hymns back in my Anglican days.

The harmonies in the version you played are different from the ones I know. Certainly, the tenor line is less elaborate than the one I remember from Hymns Ancient & Modern (Standard Edition, that is - I don't know whether this hymn survived in the unfortunate "Revised" edition of the 1950s. Certainly after that, A&M went to the bad.)

An afterthought. If you like When the Patriarch Was Returning, you may also enjoy this hymn. Sadly, this was among the decent hymns expunged from the A&M repertoire with the Revised Edition and has never reappeared.

The harmonies certainly are different. The version I'm playing is from the Westminster Hymnal, which, although it's a fine hymnal, sometimes changes the harmonies for the melodies they use.(In the case, besides the tenor line, there are changes in the bass line as well.)
Sometimes the changes are pretty major ('Divine Mysteries' and 'St.Columba' are in completely different keys than the usual ones,and the latter has a completely different bass and treble line than most other versions.)
I know the other version, so maybe I'll play it next time.(Which may be today, if I'm lucky.)

That's a lovely hymn there. I save it, maybe I can use it soon.
