This arrangement of God of Grace and God of Glory, one of the great hymns of the Welsh composers, also known as CWM Rhondda and other names in modern hymnals, will become a favorite of congregations when programmed for an advanced high school or above trombone quartet, or a brass ensemble consisting of trumpets, horn in F, trombone or euphonium, and tuba with organ. Scored in the concert key of F major, the arrangement modulates to G major for the third verse and A major for the fourth. The arrangement aligns with four verses of the tune found in most hymnals, thus lending its usage to support/accompany congregational singing as well as stand-alone concert performance. A full score and all individual parts are included in this publication. With organ, brass, and full congregational singing, this will be a rousing production of the Welsh tradition.John Hughes, the composer of this hymn, was born on November 22, 1873, in the Welsh village of Dowlais, the eldest son of Evan Hughes. His parents removed to Holly Bush, Llantwit Fardre (Llanilltud Faerdref) in 1874 where his father was deacon and worship leader at Salem Baptist Church. Like many of his countrymen, John Hughes started work in a mine at 12 years of age. He later became a clerk, and finally was an official of the Great Western colliery at Pontypridd. He married Hannah Maria David in 1905 and had both a son and a daughter. Like his father, he became deacon and worship leader at Salem Church. It was there, for the 1907 anniversary services at Capel Rhondda, Pontypridd, that he composed God of Grace and God of Glory. The tune is known by other names in many modern hymnals. Hughes wrote many hymn-tunes, anthems, and songs. He died at Ton-teg, Llantwit Fardre, on May 14, 1932.
