 The Little Notebook
Also familiar as "Jupiter's Theme" from Holst's The Planets, this patriotic British hymn was sung at the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer and, tragically, also at her funeral at the request of her son, Prince William.
My first arrangement of this music, a few days after the funeral of Princess Diana, was based on having heard and loved Holst's The Planets for most of my life.
My arrangement now more closely reflects Holst's arrangement of Thaxted rather than his earlier "Jupiter's Theme." This is my final arrangement of this piece.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "It actually says we're going to support my country whatever it says, entire and whole and perfect, the love unquestioned, which is in that first verse of the hymn, right or wrong.
My very simple view is that if someone wishes to sing this hymn at an offical occasion(and if it is on the programme), then by all means SING.
I would also like to make the point that loyalty to country and people was perfectly right and acceptable at the time in which it was written when there was some sense of nationalistic pride.

From the late 13th century, the neighbouring principality of Wales was joined to England, and gradually came to be a part of that kingdom for most legalpurposes, although in the modern era it is more usually thought of as a separate nation (fielding, for example, its own athletic teams).
The history of England as an independent country stretches on through the middle ages and renaissance to the reign of ElizabethI, often remembered as a golden age in its history, notable both for its culture and mercantile success.
The other national languagesof the UK (Welsh, Irish Gaelic and ScotsGaelic) are confined to their respective countries, and only Welsh is treated by law as an equal to English (and then onlyfor organisations which do business on both sides of the Anglo-Welsh border or in Wales itself).

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Wednesday: "It actually says we're going to support my country whatever it says, entire and whole and perfect, the love unquestioned, which is in that first verse of the hymn, right or wrong.
"That, I'm afraid, is actually heretical because it actually says that my country's approach to things must be my first call on myself and that my relationship with God or what I believe to be right or wrong is secondary to that.
He added he was raising the issue in the wider context of the "vilification" of foreigners in the media and had noticed it was being sung at "various national occasions".

The hymn ‘I vow to thee my country’ was recently described as heretical by the Bishop of Hulme, on the grounds that a Christian's ultimate commitment is to God not to the nation state.
The same is true of ‘I vow to thee, my country’, which the diplomat and poet Cecil Spring Rice wrote in 1908 while he was serving in the British Embassy in Stockholm.
In particular, the line ‘The love that asks no questions’ is considered to imply a blind, uncritical patriotism ‘my country right or wrong’ but that was not how Spring Rice saw it.
