Something for the weekend.  Always a favorite on Palm Sunday, All Glory, Laud and Honor has a long history.  Theodulf was Bishop of Orleans under Charlemagne.  Running afoul of his son Louis, he was thrown into prison.   Theodulf wrote the hymn in 820 while incarcerated.  Released the same year, he died in 821 on his way to resume his ecclesiastical duties in Orleans.  The tune to which the hymn is sung was composed by Melchior Teschner in 1603.  The commonly used English translation was written by John Neale in 1851.

  1. “…instead of these really bad songs.”

    Those songs reflect the state of our Church. When the Church is renewed our liturgical songs will follow suit.
