Abstract

On 29 July 1918, Gill, his wife, Pepler, and artist Desmond Chute became lay members of the Third Order of St Dominic (known as Tertiaries). Membership to this Order was largely through the influence of Fr. Vincent McNabb, a Dominican prior who was an advocate (like Catholic writers Hilaire Belloc and G.K. Chesterton) of Distributionism, a ‘Back to the Land’ movement that was an alternative to socialism and communism and an opponent to capitalism and industrialism. Gill often appended the initials T.O.S.D. to his name in his publications. This didactic sermon – which does not carry the initials – has Gill reflect on the 136th Psalm; he begins: ‘How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?’ This was the first book to use Gill’s 14 point Perpetua Roman and Felicity italic types.
