I'm searching for the composer of this piece of music. The only copy (see attachment) I have has been copied so many times that it's impossible for me to identify a composer name. I'm hoping that someone is familiar with the piece or recognizes it. My father used to play this piece every Easter. He is now deceased and I don't know where he got it from. The congregation loves it and when I play it now I always get questions about who composed it and where did you get that piece from. If I can find out the composer and publisher I would like to order new copies for my choir.

I've included a scan of the music. It's not great but it's the closest I have to the original! Please advise me as to maybe where I should be posting this and/or any directions I should be searching in. Thanks for your assistance.

The work is by L. Bordes. It can be found in the St. Basil's Hymnal (No. 177, on pp. 275ff), which is available as a Google eBook. Here is a link to the page with the music requested. ... es&f=false
