It was a suggestion in The Liturgy Planner to sing Spirit of God within me to Coe fen. We have used the Joncas tune previously, which as a homage to Down Ampney I had presumed shared the same metre. However it fits Coe Fen well - with just a stretch in the first line. I wondered about tweaking it - something like Spirit of God within my heart - but resisted.
We have sung the first hymn before - but I am not sure to what tune. I had thought Conditor alme siderum but wrong metre. Today it was Tallis' Ordinal (Come Holy Ghost) which I don't when we last sang as a tune. My first impression was that people did know it but the weak spoken responses later might suggest otherwise.
