Thanks for the link Noel. Sumptuously French sound and nice to hear these are "live" liturgical recordings. The thurible adds that little extra :)

Thank you Noel, that is spot on. Its quite a service you are giving there.

For those of you who have never seen the words of the whole hymn, they are here:

There is also another tune, which may be one of those remembered by Mr Comfort.

I had never heard of him - stunning, absolutely glorious music!

Thanks for mentioning him, Presbyter. It's such great music that the church needs.


The proper recording of these two pieces is to be found on this CD:

The blogger mentioned above said he thought these pieces were being performed for the first time. Far from it. They had been in use at Farm Street Jesuit Church for quite a long time before they were introduced to Brompton Oratory in the mid-70s.
