‘The Day Thou Gavest" - ‘St. Clement', was composed by John Ellerton in 1870 and although once described by critics, including Ralph Vaughan Williams as a ‘feeble waltz tune' it has stood the test of time and is amongst the nations favourites, standing at number 10 in the BBC's UK top 100 hymns.

By request Geoff Kingston has arranged a new and slightly contemporary setting for Concert Band which includes Bagpipes, Choir and Organ. All of which are optional. This arrangement is ideal for all occasions and works well on the concert platforms as well as sacred occasions.

30/04/2016 - I cannot stop listening to this arrangement of the tune. I worked with a group of young pipers in the Air Training Corps at one time who used this tune to learn basic fingering and notation. I will be sure to show this beautiful arrangement to my old colleagues. A job well done! - Comment by Chris Nelson
