Above All Other was composer by request for the Carmelite shrine of Our Lady of Doncaster is in the heart of the English city of Doncaster. Established in 1350 after a farmer’s wife and her child were miraculously rescued from drowning in a torrential flood as the people prayed to Mary for help. This pilgrimage hymn may be sung at any time in honor of Our Lady, either during Mass or at a prayer service. Although primarily an assembly hymn, there are optional SATB and descant parts, and the soprano and alto parts may be sung as a two-part version. Parts are also provided for two instruments in C (B-flat parts are available online). The text repeats at the beginning and end of each verse to help the faithful participate easily, especially if they are in procession.
