The Recessional Hymn was written in 1844 by Henry Alford, Dean of Canterbury as a hymn for the English Harvest Festival. The second verse comes from the parable in Mark 4:26-29; the third verse, Matthew 13:24-30. The tune “St. George’s Windsor” is named for the chapel at Windsor Castle where the composer, George Elvey, was organist-choirmaster. The prelude, where the tune is placed in the tenor on the organ krumhorn between interludes, is by Flor Peeters (1903-1986), organist for St. Rombault’s Cathedral in Mechelen, Belgium and a director at the Royal Conservatory. The postlude, with its active pedal line, is by Francis Cunningham Woods (1862-1929), composer of choral and orchestral music, teacher and choral director.

The Gradual Hymn, “Now Thank We All Our God,” is a German text written in 1636 by Martin Rinckart during the 30 Years War; its tune from 1647 by Johann Crüger. The organ offertory is by Georg Friedrich Kauffmann (1679-1735), Court Organist and Director of Church Music for the Duke of Saxe-Merseburg in Germany.

Holy Communion:  If you have been confirmed by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession, you are invited to receive the Blessed Sacrament.  If not, but are a Baptized Christian, please come to the Altar Rail for a blessing (simply cross your arms over your chest when the Celebrant approaches.)  If you have questions, please speak to the clergy.
