Another celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, our own this time, gave us a second opportunity to sing Parry’s magnificent coronation anthem, minus the brass this time but with the vivats once again. Vaughan Williams’s simply-crafted miniature was also written for a coronation, this time the Queen’s own.

Our final hymn was both a Te Deum for a royal occasion, and an acclamation of the Trinity, which I'd like to think wasn’t dislodged from the main focus of attention in both our spoken and sung prayer this morning.
