Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Visiting priest this morning announced he does not sing Sursum corda. No problem! I played the gradual hymn (in E flat) and was just going to start Celtic Alleluia in A when I heard "The Lord be with you" so no Alleluia. No apology either! :D A congreation member said how lovely the anthem at communion was - King of glory by Harris so I passed that on to the small choir. :D

Assume this was an Anglican church as the Sursum Corda = Preface Dialogue in RC parlance, and RCs don't have a Gradual Hymn. Harris's King of Glory is a nice piece. Those who don't know it will find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MVT1eGNYZA at about 40:18.
