For all the saints
This is not your mother’s setting of Vaughan Williams’s excellent tune, Sine nomine. Enjoy.
We’re singing eight verses of “For all the saints” in procession this morning at Christ Church as the altar party wends its way through the congregation sprinkling everyone with lustral water. We’ll make a station at our oratory, which is where the names of those buried in our memorial garden are listed. I love this day, and part of the reason is that we get to sing this excellent tune with its stirring poetry. I couldn’t find a good youtube video of this hymn being sung, which is just as well; it’s great fun to hear Joyce Jones on the Crystal Cathedral organ in this setting.
