Bread of the world in mercy broken

Peter Tranchell's setting of Bread of the world in mercy broken (tune: Durley Mill) was written in 1970 for unison voices & organ. The words are by Bishop Reginald Heber (1783-1826), from Hymns Ancient & Modern Revised Hymn 409. 

The piece has featured on the Gonville & Caius College Chapel Music List as recently as November 2015, as a communion anthem.

Parts for Oboe, Violin and Cello are held in the Gonville & Caius College Chapel Music Library.

Bread of the world in mercy broken provides material for the later work Thou art Peter, written for unison voices and organ in 1980, then revised for SATB and organ in 1987.

Bread of the world in mercy broken has now been published by CMS in both unison and SATB versions, so we have removed the score from this site. It is now available to purchase here.
