FinalPraise my soul

Last week the singers were away with other members of the College Choir at the Church Colleges Choirs Festival in Chester. There were just hymns at Mass: Praise my soul, Dear Lord and Father of mankind and Guide me, O thou great Redeemer.

This week we had four baptisms - this was partly because Lent begins next week. For the final hymn we substituted 'Alleluia for Praise him as a way of marking this. This was done by invitation to change the words on the fly but people seemed to cope. Another effect of the baptisms was that the regular Sunday congregation was seated to the back of the chapel - a cori spezzati.
