Today’s Gospel reading was St Luke’s account of the journey to Emmaus. It prompted several of our musical choices, including the opening hymn, our motet at the preparation of the gifts and our Communion processional song.

I have to confess to not being completely convinced of the artistic merits of the opening hymn text by Ralph Wright OSB. To compensate, I tried pairing the text with a Good Tune. I think it worked (though perhaps not as well as in the video clip).
