O Come all ye faithful
Gloria Psallite
Psalm All the ends of the earth (Alan Johnson)
Gospel Acclamation St Agatha Alleluia (mcb)

Communion Verbum caro factum est/Gloria III (mcb/Taizé)
Postcommunion Away in a manger - Choir
Recessional Hark, the herald angels sing

Six men of the choir shouldered this morning’s burden, including my double canon based on Jacques Berthier’s Gloria. In principle it was six of us singing in eight parts, but when there’s that much going on, musically speaking, no-one really noticed the missing voices.
