Lo! He Comes with Clouds Descending is a hymn with a text by John Cennick (1718–1755) and Charles Wesley (1707–1788). Most commonly sung at Advent, the hymn derives its theological content from the Book of Revelation relating imagery of the Day of Judgment. Considered one of the “Great Four Anglican Hymns” in the 19th century, it is most commonly sung to the tune Helmsley, first published in 1763. This arrangement represents one in the Series of Band Arrangements compatible with David Willcocks’ Carols for Choirs.
