Did anyone know the hymn that was sung at Captain Henshawe's grave last night? It began with Demelza singing the words 'Greater love.' I wasn't sure what to make of it - whether it was based on an old tune and newly arranged, or whether it was something written for the tv episode.

I see there was a tweet yesterday from Anne Dudley, who wrote the music for the series: "Emotional scenes in #Poldark tonight. I wrote a psalm with Debbie H - "Greater love" - 4 part harmony from the cast -I love them." I have to say that the four cast members didn't sing it at all badly either: both balance and tuning were very pleasing (if about as believable as the rapidly reloading muskets and pistols! :)  )
