Notes

Erik Routley (PHH 31) wrote CLIFF TOWN in 1943 to the text "Not Only for the Goodly Fruit-Trees Tall" by E. S. Armitage; the tune was first published in Congregational Praise (1951). CLIFF TOWN is named after the Congregational Church at Southend-on-Sea, England. It is fitted with a harmonization suited to four-part singing; the opening phrase returns at the end with a small cadential change. Keep it stately, with two broad beats per measure.
