When the Cathedral hosted the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux in 2009, the queues reached several times round the block. For some reason the visit of St Anthony of Padua was less of a draw, and the congregation for Mass celebrated in the presence of his relics was a bit smaller than that for a normal Sunday. But we were treated to fine preaching from a friar from Padua, and the celebration – for which we followed the readings and, indirectly, the propers for the feast of St Anthony, was friendly and down to earth. I found the final hymn on the internet, and just tweaked the words a little. We sang it to the tune Blaenwern.

Today’s readings dealt with the theme of forgiveness, so it seemed a good opportunity to sing Paul Inwood’s hymn for the Year of Mercy again, complete with its arresting choral ending. Elsewhere, two of our songs (for the preparation of the gifts, and after Communion) reprised verses from today’s responsorial psalm.

Before the blessing and dismissal, in honour of the Queen’s (official) ninetieth birthday celebrations, we recited the prayer for the Queen, and then sang some of the same words before a hearty rendition of the national anthem.

The Body and Blood of Christ (2016)

Sunday, 29 May 2016

Kyrie Mass for John Carroll (Michael Joncas)
Gloria Mass for John Carroll

Postcommunion Ave Verum Corpus (W.A. Mozart)
Recessional O praise our great and gracious Lord
 

We hadn't sung Godhead here in hiding for many years, and by the time we got to verse 3 or 4 I'd remembered why. I don't think Gerard Manley Hopkins’s poetry, engaging and intriguing as it is, works terribly well for public declamation in a hymn text.
