It has been a busy week. The University Choir sang in Westminster Cathedral on Wednesday for the Installation of Cardinal Nichols as Chancellor of the University and then in Arundel on Thursday when Bishop Moth, our Chair of Governors, was installed as Bishop of Arundel & Brighton.
Following discussion after Christmas we decided to repeat Credo III, as we did a couple of years ago, for the Sundays from Trinity to Ss Peter & Paul. I know some of the congregation enjoy it for the memories it brings but I am not sure how all feel about it. At least this time I have put the English text underneath the Latin chant - I have become more aware that it is not that people do not understand Latin, it is that they do not recognise as language and therefore conveying meaning.
