The Epiphany (2015)

Sunday, 4 January 2014

Entrance O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness
Gloria Gloria de Noël (Thomas Niel)
Psalm Ps 71 (Monaghan/Dean)
Gospel Acclamation St Agatha Alleluia (mcb)
Preparation of the Gifts Thorns in the straw (Graham Kendrick, arr. Richard Hubbard)
Sanctus, Acclamation C, Amen Missa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Agnus Dei Lamb of God II (mcb)
Communion Laudate Omnes Gentes (Taizé) & Reges Tharsis (chant)
Postcommunion The Three Kings (Peter Cornelius, 1824-1874)
Recessional The First Nowell

Two contrasting choral items today: an engaging arrangement of Graham Kendrick’s bittersweet reflection on the life to come for the infant Jesus, and the Carols for Choirs arrangement of Peter Cornelius’s Epiphany anthem, with its solo countermelody over the chorale Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern. Robin Wolfendale was our accomplished soloist in the latter.
