478 - Almighty God, Thy Word Is Cast

Tune: Albano

Okay, I know it's not nice to complain, but seriously ... isn't this just about the dullest tune you've ever heard? No significant harmonic development, and an undistinguished melody.  I hope Francis Vincent Novello didn't lay awake at night composing this, because it's a real snoozer.  zzzzzzz
