World Meeting of Families

A Joy For All The Earth CD

“A Joy for all the World” is the official hymn for World Meeting of Families 2018 and was composed by young Irish composer Ephrem Feeley. The hymn found its inspiration in the document Amoris Laetitia – the Joy of Love, written in 2016 by Pope Francis following the Synods on the Family held the preceding two years.

A substantial portion of the document is a treatment of the famous Hymn to Love found in 1 Corinthians 13. and our composer felt that his piece should begin with this wonderful Pauline text.

To provide musical and textual symmetry, the introduction is repeated with these words as a coda, though with pared-back accompaniment to highlight their simplicity and elegance. The main focus of Amoris Laetitia is the domestic family and there are also theological parallels between this and God’s family in the Church.

Although the performing forces for this piece are substantial for regular parish situations, perhaps for special occasions, at least one trumpet (playing the uppermost line) could be used. The lyrical nature of the melody allows for this piece to be performed by smaller forces too, even a single voice and accompaniment, making it suitable for weddings.

The piece also is suitable for general use, and could be used as a strong stately entrance or communion processional hymn.
