Healey Willan: O Lord our Governour

O Lord our Governour:
how excellent is thy Name in all the world.
Behold, O God our defender:
and look upon the face of thine Anointed.
O hold thou up her goings in thy paths:
that her footsteps slip not.
Grant the Queen a long life:
and make her glad with the joy of thy countenance.
Save Lord and hear us O King of heaven:
when we call upon thee. Amen.

Composed for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the first by an overseas composer.

Performance by the Choirs of Westminster Abbey and Ely Cathedral, Timothy Farrell organist [BNQ; BM] (info)
