Score of the Week – Tell out my soul is a well known Hymn in the church today with lyrics written by the great Timothy Dudley-Smith. “I did not think of myself . . . as having in any way the gifts of a hymn-writer when in May 1961 I jotted down a set of verses, beginning “Tell out, my soul, the greatness of the Lord.” I was reading a review copy of the New English Bible New Testament, in which that line appears exactly as I have put it above; I saw in it the first line of a poem, and speedily wrote the rest (Dudley-Smith 1984).
The orchestration is put together with a strong harmonic underlay by Noël Tredinnick, a real triumphant praise to God.
