In Revelation 7:9-17 the apostle John records his vision of a great multitude of God's children "from every nation, tribe, people, and language" standing before the Lamb and singing doxologies. The text is a most comforting description of the end of human troubles: no more thirst or hunger, no more griefs or trials. Now the people live by streams of living water under the care of their Shepherd–the complete fulfillment of Psalm 23!

Christopher M. Idle (PHH 20) effectively captures this awe-inspiring vision in his paraphrase "Here from All Nations," written in London in 1972 and first published with O QUANTA QUALIA in the British collection Psalm Praise (1973).

Liturgical Use:
In worship focusing on the worldwide nature of the church; as words of encouragement ;and comfort for those in the midst of troubles and/ or martyrdom; as an exultant doxology; Advent; times when the church focuses on Christ's return and the new heaven and new earth; All Saints' Day; Reformation Day.

Tune Information:

O QUANTA QUALIA is a chant tune from the Paris Antiphoner of 1681 and represents the "new" breed of French Roman Catholic diocesan tunes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The tune is often associated with Peter Abelard's twelfth-century hymn "O What Their Joy and Their Glory Must Be," which also has a new-heaven-and-earth focus. The tune name comes from the original Latin incipit of Abelard's text: "O quanta qualia…." Antiphonal singing may be desirable, as is singing in harmony, but the final stanza should be sung in unison and at a majestic pace as a finale/ doxology preferably with other instruments to enhance the festivity.
