One of those Sundays when the mix of music was as eclectic and wide-ranging as it was possible to be, within the bounds (though I say so myself) of good taste and liturgical propriety. It was a new departure for us to sing Jaime Cortez’s bilingual English/Spanish psalm setting in both languages, complete with guitar, piano and percussion accompaniment. It garnered an enthusiastic response from the congregation, not least our sizeable Latin American contingent. I’m looking for more good bilingual items, not just Spanish, but languages of West Africa too. Any suggestions?
