The tune Rhosymedre (meaning “Lovely” in Welsh) was written by John David Edwards (1805-1885), an Anglican clergyman who served in the parish of Rhosymedre, near Wrexham in North Wales. He published two volumes of hymn tunes entitled “Original Sacred Music” in 1836 and 1843. The tune was commonly associated with the hymns “O Father by whose Name” and “Arise O God and shine”. Vaughan Williams’ set of Three Chorale Preludes (with Rhosymedre being the second) was published in 1920.
Here played on a 19th Century organ with 10 stops and no reeds, as an alternative to the use of a Cathedral set.
