Jack C Goode (1921–2002)

Meditation on Crusader's Hymn Back

This music is a setting of the tune associated with the hymn "Fairest Lord Jesus." The tune has two names, "Crusader's Hymn" (based on an unfounded tradition that it was sung by crusaders to Jerusalem) and "St Elizabeth" (oratorio by Franz Liszt who used the tune there).
