Description: Hymn Tune Index No. 178. This tune first appeared in The Residue of All Davids Psalmes in Metre published by John Daye, London, 1562, where it was used for Psalm 132, which begins Remember David's troubles, Lord. The tune is by an anonymous composer; words are by John Markant, 1560, in eighteen stanzas. The Giles Farnaby harmonization first appeared in The Whole Booke of Psalmes (Thomas Este), 1592, with the same text as in 1562 (Psalm 132). The Thomas Ravenscroft harmonization first appeared in 1621, with John Markant's 1560 paraphrase of Psalm 132. Unsure when the tune name St. Flavian was first applied to this tune; it doesn't appear in any of the Psalters cited above. Both Daye's Psalter, Farnaby and Ravenscroft all use the first two stanzas in the composition.
