From today's Gospel reading: '''Jesus said to them, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name ...' And so today the communion motet and organ voluntaries are all based on the Lord's Prayer, the voluntaries including ones by J. S. Bach and Friedrich Zachau, Handel's first teacher and predecessor of Bach at the cathedral in Halle.
Robert Stone's setting of the Lord's Prayer was written around 1550 when he was a member of the Chapel Royal. It will be preceded by Responses by John Sanders, organist at Gloucester Cathedral until 1994. He and Julian Elloway received their Honorary Fellowships of the Guild of Church Musicians at the same ceremony in Westminster Cathedral in 2003.

Today the two churches in our benefice dedicated to the Holy Trinity celebrate their Feast of Title, while the third, dedicated to St Barnabas, had its dedication feast day last week. The music in the morning celebrates aspects of the Holy Trinity. One of the many delights of Hildegard's Laus Trinitatis is her use of the word Creatrix rather than Creator, i.e. a female God the Creator. In the evening we have a Songs of Praise with items selected by members of the congregations.
