We marked the return to Ordinary Time with changes to our ritual music. We're trying out one or two new items: the Sanctus from Alan Smith’s Pershore Mass and the Kyrie from a Mass setting written for us by Daniel Bath. Otherwise, we added to our Trinity Sunday repertoire with Stanford’s setting of the strongly Trinitarian St Patrick’s Breastplate. The music begins and ends in muscular guise, but at the centre of the piece is the more serene hymn-like setting of Christ beside me. We found a good range of musical expression to accommodate the changing moods of the music.
