Does anyone know anything about the origins of 'Down From His Glory', which is believed to be the first English translation of the 'O Sole Mio' song? Maybe if there are any teachers out there! As this was originally a hymn I think. Many thanks.

"The story behind Down From His Glory

Switzerland born William Emmanuel Booth Clibborn (1893-1969) was the grandson of William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army. In 1921 he wrote the words to Down From His Glory. These powerful lyrics became even more intense when he adapted them to the tune of Edwardo Di Capua's famous O SOLE MIO. . . . ."

Note that 'In 1921 he wrote the words to Down From His Glory.' The he in that refers to WEBC, not William Booth who had died in 1912.
