Our Lord’s words in the Gospel were:
I came into the world for this: to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.
Vaughan Williams’s haunting folk-song arrangement began and ended:
This is the Truth sent from above…
Be pleased to hear what he did say.
Our closing chant Christus Vincit was given redoubled vigour by Martin Baker’s fiery organ part. It was followed immediately by Marcel Dupré’s Placare Christe Servulis: more organ fireworks from our excellent organist Anthony Hunt.
