Sunday Worship from Hall
16 Nov 2022
Tune your radios appropriately from 8.10 on Sunday, and you will hear the Choir of St Edmund Hall singing Mattins, broadcast live from the College Chapel and accompanied by Instruments of Time and Truth. The Chaplain will speak about St Edmund and ‘the perfect gift of charity’. The broadcast will remain available on BBC Sounds afterward. You can find a link here to listen to the broadcast.
The service will give a picture of worship and life within the college and point to the practices of love and almsgiving that characterized St Edmund’s life. Music is chosen from a range of centuries and styles, though recognizable as an expression of the English choral tradition. Service leader and preacher: The Revd Dr Zachary Guiliano (Fellow and Chaplain); Director of Music: Dr James Whitbourn; Organ Scholars: Alyssa Chan and Michelle Ng; with ‘Instruments of Time and Truth’ and the Choir of St Edmund Hall.
Hymns: Come down, O Love divine; Blessed city, heavenly Salem; Preces & responses by Humphrey Clucas (b. 1941); Thomas Tomkins (d.1656), Jubilate; Ola Gjeilo (b. 1978), Ubi caritas; James Whitbourn (b. 1963), Give us the wings of faith.
