As usual we were joined by the University Choir this morning.
I was pleased with the Mendelssohn, which is a lovely piece. The text is Luther's translation of Da pacem, Domine so in its plea for peace in times of conflict it was a fitting text for today, in its explicit reference to mercy it fitted with the ending of the Year of Mercy from this Sunday, and as a bit of Luther it also noted the anniversary of the reformation.
