Hear my Words, ye People was composed by Parry in 1893 as a commission for the Salisbury Diocesan Choral Association Festival, which took place on 10 May 1894 in Salisbury Cathedral under the composerÔÇÖs direction. It was a rare example of ParryÔÇÖs use of the ambitious ÔÇÿverse anthemÔÇÖ form which his immediate forebears ÔÇô S. S. Wesley and Stainer ÔÇô had written earlier in the 19th century. However, in this instance, Parry adapted the form to suit the grand scale of the occasion. With the participation of almost 100 local choirs (2,000 singers), supported by the band of the Royal Marine Light Infantry, Portsmouth, the musical structure and material had to suit the range of choral abilities as well as marshalling the vast number of voices. This original version was left in manuscript and remained unknown: this is its first publication.
