All the music this morning relates to John the Baptist, the four hymns most obviously. Instead of a communion motet the choir will sing the Benedictus canticle: a song of thanksgiving attributed by Luke to John the Baptist's father Zechariah. The organ music before the service includes a setting by Flor Peeters of the hymn to John the Baptist 'Ut queant laxis' whose plainsong melody is noted for its role in the history of musical notation.
