Monday Music: All Creatures of Our God and King

Yesterday, over at Music of the Spheres, I posted this one for the Feast of St. Francis:

On the Feast Day for St. Francis of Assisi, an old hymn with the words of St. Francis set to the tune  LASST UNS ERFREUEN. Originally written in Italian ("Laudato sia Dio mio Signore"), the text is also known as the "Song of All Creatures" and as the "Canticle of the Sun." Pope Francis' encyclical on the environment titled, "Laudato Si" (Praise Be to You) has as it's subtitle, "On care for our common home." The document's title, of course, harks back to the words of St. Francis in praise to God for creation.
