MUSIC SELECTIONS CHOSEN TO REFLECT THE THEMES AND ACTIONS FOUND IN THE READINGS
[together with links where you can listen to the selections]
Sunday, August 25: Pe.11 / Pr.16
Hymns / Service Music 10:15 Service
Opening 304 I come with joy to meet my Lord
Amazingly enough for such a popular hymn with this tune, hardly ANYTHING worth listening to with a congregation!  There are some - but all with a different tune.  This is the best I could find: organist plays, words at the bottom of the screen for the verses.

Hymn of Praise Here I am to worship
A new video of this one by the group "Anthem Lights" - beautiful and powerful.

Psalm 71:1-6 (Plainsong with Refrain)
Gospel HYMN FOR AUGUST: 665 All my hope on God is founded
We've been doing this during the Summer, choosing a "Hymn of the Month" to be sung each Sunday for that month.  Truly POWERFUL and stirring singing at Westminster Abbey!  Text on the screen as sung.  WOW!!  They either have the mikes turned up, or the Brits REALLY gave themselves to this one!!

Sanctus Sung to "Land of Rest"
This odd situation continues: no-one has put this on YouTube or the Internet with the English text!  Here it is again, the only place I can find it, in a Catholic Church in Mexico, exact location not given.

Fraction S-154 Christ our Passover
We continue with not the best there could be, but the only one on YouTube: organ clear, and the congregation in the background - Grace Episcopal Church, Cincinnati, OH.

Communion Heaven on earth
Found on the publisher's website, GIA, who publishes in the USA the music we sing from IONA.  This is an updated version with some added vocal harmony - we just sing the tune.  Click on the 1st Track and you will hear a portion of the song.

Closing God the creator
Another one of our beloved and well-known IONA songs - not to be found sung on the Internet, but the tune is the same one as that for "Morning has broken".

CHOIR
Offertory Jesu, joy of mans desiring   J. S. Bach (1685-1750)  
Full Choir
Very close to the way we sing it (with organ), plus addition of oboe playing the accompaniment "main tune".
Listen Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSZg6sQ5J2k
Communion Wherefore, O Father   E. Bullock (1890-1979)  
Adult Choir
Alas, not well enough known to be found ANYWHERE on the internet.  However, we have sung this many times over the years.
Listen Link:
ORGAN
Prelude Prelude in a minor   J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
The link is BOTH the Prelude and the Fugue, played by the French organist Marie-Claire Alain - instrument she is playing not given.  However, enjoy watching the music go by as it is played!
Listen Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1AMV4shx1M
Postlude Fugue in a minor   J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
See above - same link as the Prelude, one runs into the other.
