Anglican Chant XI: Bampton - Anglican Church: Psalm 150 - "O Praise God In His Holiness"

A terrific Psalm 150; will let you know the composer as soon as my Anglican Chant commenters have arrived! Here's the Coverdale text:
Psalm 150. Laudate Dominum
1. O PRAISE God in his holiness : praise him in the firmament of his power.
2. Praise him in his noble acts : praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3. Praise him in the sound of the trumpet : praise him upon the lute and harp.
4. Praise him in the cymbals and dances : praise him upon the strings and pipe.
5. Praise him upon the well-tuned cymbals : praise him upon the loud cymbals.
6. Let every thing that hath breath : praise the Lord.

EDIT: I'm informed by a reader, Scott, that this is a "Double chant in C major by the Rev. Robert Philip Goodenough (c. 1776-1826)." Thanks so much as always, Scott!
