Lord of All Hopefulness

One of my favorite hymns from the Liturgy of the Hours is “Lord of all Hopefulness,” based on the Irish tune Slane. I found these two versions on YouTube, and think they are both good in their own way. The first is Winchester Quirister Harry Sever.

This second one, I can’t tell if it’s offered tongue in cheek or not. This is how the performer envisions Liberace playing it. It’s a very nice piano rendition, regardless.
