General Information

Title: Te Deum laudamus in E flat
Composer: Arthur Sullivan

Number of voices: 8vv   Voicing: SSAATTBB
Genre: SacredMorning Canticles

Language: English
Instruments: Organ

First published: 1902
Description: This was Sullivan's last completed work. It was commissioned by the Dean & Chapter of St Paul's Cathedral, in anticipation of victory in the South African (Boer) war. In fact, the war did not finish until nearly two years after Sullivan's death, so he did not hear it performed. The first performance was in St Paul's cathedral in 8th June 1902. It makes extensive use of Sullivan's tune, St Gertrude, written for the hymn "Onward Christian Soldiers". The Novello organ accompaniment seems to be a reduction of a fuller orchestral score.
