Rowland George Thompson (fl. 1907-1948) was organist of Trinity Church (United Reformed?) at St. Albans.
Like the previous work by Darnton, this piece is found in "Hymn Tune Voluntaries Part I" published by J. Curwen & Sons Ltd. around 1908.
It is based upon the well-loved hymn tune, "Rockingham", which was harmonized by Edward Miller (1735-1807).
Once again, as the in the work by Darnton, you'll need to be thoughtful in the way you perform and register this. I tried to be colorful, but restrained in the way I did this, and I liked the effects that the Hereford Willis produced here.
If you just play it "as written," it would sound very different than this. :-)
This one could serve as a Lenten recital number, or an extended prelude for a Sunday service.
The text, "When I survey the wondrous Cross" is by Isaac Watts (1674-1748), and I give the first verse below.
When I survey the wondrous Cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.
The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Trinity (United Reformed) Church in St. Albans, where I THINK Thompson was organist.
I wasn't sure, as I just assumed he was an Anglican, but this was the only Trinity Church I could find in the location, and it's quite grand, and probably with a decent organ.
