32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Remembrance)

11 November 2012

Psalm 145 My soul give praise (mtgf)
Gospel AcclamationSalisbury (Christopher Walker)

Eucharistic AcclamationsCreation (Marty Haugen)

For Remembrance Sunday we are joined by the College Choir and this influenced some of the choices. The Choir will be singing Brahms' German Requiem next March in Birmingham and this was a step on the way. The Mendelssohn seemed harder than I remembered - all the notes were there but its texture means that it needs a sustained, balanced singing. At the beginning we recall the students who died in the First World War and use Eternal rest to add our prayers.
