MUSIC SELECTIONS CHOSEN TO REFLECT THE THEMES AND ACTIONS FOUND IN THE READINGS
[together with links where you can listen to the selections]
Sunday, Jan 26: Epiphany 3
Hymns / Service Music 10:15 Service
Opening 304 I come with joy to meet my Lord
Many of these on YouTube - most pretty dreadful!  ‚Ķespecially of the tune that we use.  So, here is the one we always use: St. Martin in the Fields Episcopal Church in Pompano Beach, FL, at an Ordination service in 2009.

Hymn of Praise Here I am to worship
A beautiful and gentler approach/arrangement to this well-known song by the group "Anthem Lights".

Psalm 27:1,5-13 (Plainsong with Refrain)
Gospel Come take my hand
A great text to a great tune - "The Braes o' Killiecrankie" - but STILL not a single posting on YouTube or anywhere else.  Maybe we should do this!  Search for the tune on YouTube to hear many and truly varied renditions of the original text.
Sanctus Unknown version from Trinity, St. Augustine, FL
We sang this on one of Summer trips to sing at Trinity in St. Augustine a few years ago.  The Music Director there had run across it at some event he attended, but, despite much research, had been unable to discover the composer or a publication in which it might be found.  We all liked the setting, and have been using it for several years at the 6:00 pm - occasionally at the 10:15.  Nowhere to be found on the internet.
Fraction S-170 Whoever eats this bread
This is the Fraction Anthem (sung when the bread is "fractured" - broken) that we sing throughout Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany -   the text works well for all three Seasons.  As for the past several years, the only version on YouTube is one that seems to be from a Eucharist held in someone's home.  Words on the screen as sung - projected on to a screen.

Communion The Servant Song
Time to re-hear that wonderful and beautiful rendition by two Benedictine monks - one a highly skilled guitarist.

Closing The Summons
Time for some strong congregational singing: the BBC "Songs of Praise" program, location unknown.

CHOIR
Introit Love come down    
Angels Choir
One of the songs from a recent VBS - sung with great enthusiasm!
Listen Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upvOaX-B7O0

Offertory Go forth into the world   J. Rutter (b.1945)        
Full Choir
The one we have used before - it's John Rutter's own group "The Cambridge Singers" + the City of London Sinfonia - one cannot get much better than this!

Communion A Prayer of St. Richard of Chichester  L. J. White [1910-1949]  
Adult Choir Sopranos & Altos
An excellent Boy Treble sings the opening section as a solo - followed by all of Lichfield Cathedral Choir's boys. Beautiful!  From a BBC broadcast in 1998.
