Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
my God and King!

The heavens are not too high,
his praises there may fly;
the earth is not too low,
his praises there may grow.

Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing,
my God and King!

The church with psalms must shout,
no door can keep them out;
but above all, the heart must bear the longest part.

Let all the world, in ev'ry corner sing,
my God, and King.

Text: George Herbert.

Description
For those who love Ralph Vaughan Williams's or Erik Routley's familiar musical settings of George Herbert's great call to worship, Fedak's vigorous anthem will be a pleasure. Pealing figurations in the organ create a sense of driving momentum, and the choir's declamation of the refrain ("Let all the world in every corner sing, My God and King!") moves each time to a different key area, creating a surprising, yet inevitable sense of exaltation. This paean of praise is suitable for any festive occasion, and the skillful choral craft for which Fedak is well-known make it easy to learn.
