This year All Saints’ Day, 1st November, falls on a Sunday.
We shall have our Sung Mass of All Saints at 10.45am, with White being the Liturgical Colour.
Music will be the Missa Brevissima (Shortest Mass), by Claudio Casciolini (1679-1760). The Motet: O Quam Gloriosum, by Tomas Luis da Victoria (1548-1611)
O how glorious is the kingdom in which all the saints rejoice with Christ, clad in robes of white they follow the Lamb wherever he goes.
Being a First Sunday of the Month we also have 6pm Choral Evensong & Benediction – Radcliffe Responses, Psalms 148 & 150, Office Hymn 245. Canticles: Dyson in F. Anthem: And I Saw a New Heaven, Bainton. O salutaris & Tantum Ergo: Liszt.
Revelation 21: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
