Proclaim His Triumph, Heaven and Earth

Proclaim His Triumph, Heaven and Earth is written by the Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. In the Divine Office (1974) it is included among the optional hymns for Eastertide sung up until Ascension Day. It is set to the 1628 tune: Eisenach by the early Baroque composer, Johann Hermann Schein (1586-1630). An accomplished and innovative composer of both secular and sacred music, the relatively small number of hymns which he composed were mostly written on the occasions of the deaths of friends or family, which included the loss of seven children and his first wife.
