Some choir members could not be with us and so this meant a couple of changes. Whether the congregation thought they were getting Monteverdi when they were getting the Bach/Gounod/Soper mash-up I am not sure.
The reference in the Collect to Christ's Passion and Cross made a connection with Andrew Maries setting of James Quinn's O child of promise - the promise is salvation and it is won through his Passion, Death and Resurrection - this is what we invoke.
