This theme and variations for organ solo elaborates on the hymn tune King's Lynn, which is the melody for the hymn "For All Thy Saints in Warfare." This hymn tune is a traditional English melody often sung with harmonization by Ralph Vaughan Williams. There are nine variations plus the original theme in this set, providing plenty of material for a recital or any worship celebration. The composer has suggested registrations in each movement which provide a variety of sound from variation to variation.
