“We Gather Together” #Music

Download Mp3

“Wilt Heden Nu Treden” is the original Dutch title of the hymn we know as “We Gather Together.” Adrianus Valerius wrote the text in 1597, to celebrate the Dutch victory over Spanish forces at the Battle of Turnhout. The melody is a traditional Dutch folk tune, author unknown. Today the hymn is most often associated with Thanksgiving. You can read the English lyrics
here.

I hope you enjoy hearing “We Gather Together” on lyre, viola, and Oriole (soprano) recorder!
