Organist of Trinity College, St John's College, and Professor of Music at Cambridge simultaneously, Walmisley is known today for his Evening Canticles in D minor and a handful of anthems. This fine double choir setting was written some ten years before the D minor set, and is published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth. There are fewer contrasts of texture than in the later setting, but the two choirs are used to great effect, with the Gloria starting with striding imitation between soprano and tenor (later alto and bass) over a pedal point in the organ.
