This was one of those Sundays, perhaps due to the weather, when we began the Opening Hymn with a small congregation which managed to grow by the time it was completed. I was struck that both opening and closing hymns were more explicitly linked to the Last Supper this week — if it was design it may be because the Gospel mentions both eat and drinking this week.

Wisdom has built is based on the first reading and the verses based on John 6 — thanks to Philip Jakob at NNPM for a reminder of this lovely piece. I had left behind the full music for the Communion antiphon (the music of the antiphon was on the service sheet), so true to its design we could adapt another weeks. I thought this a vindication of its design that we could adapt though suspect the sings would have had preferred the full copy.
