Choir Report

The entrance hymn was When Jesus Comes to Be Baptised, which was sung to the tune I normally associate with On Jordan’s Bank (Winchester New).

During the Offertory, we sang O Nata Lux de Lumine by Thomas Tallis and we managed to stay in pitch and on tempo, which we had great difficulty with during the warmup. For communion we sang R. Vaughn Williams’ O Taste and See, another a capella piece with only a wee introduction on the organ.

The recessional was Baptized in Water, sung to a slightly modified “Fairest Lord Jesus”. I had never heard any other words set to this tune, and changes to the rhythm in the last phrase made for some amount of confusion on my part. But it was lovely and liturgically appropriate, so what more can I ask?
