Collect for the 15th Sunday after Trinity 

God, who in generous mercy sent the Holy Spirit
upon your Church in the burning fire of your love:
grant that your people may be fervent
in the fellowship of the gospel
that, always abiding in you,
they may be found steadfast in faith and active in service;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.


Our hymn today, Sing of the Lord’s Goodness, was recorded by the musicians of St Martin in the Fields. The voluntary, details below, was recorded by the Director of Music at St Mary’s Beaminster, Martin Schellenberg. It was recorded on the organ St Mary’s Beaminster. 

Voluntary VIII/Allegro

Martin writes: “There are two organ pieces this week.

“Quiet and reflective: Flutes is from the Suite du Deuxieme Ton by Louis-Nicolas Clerembault. He was an 18th century Parisian organist, harpsichordist and composer and a minor but by no means insignificant contemporary of Bach, Scarlatti and Couperin. Flutes is a highly ornamented piece and explores all the flute stops on the organ of St Marys.

“Big and bold: Voluntary VIII/Allegro by John Stanley. Stanley was an 18th century English composer who wrote 30 voluntaries. They were mostly of three movements (fast, slow, fast) and this is the jolly last movement of hs eighth voluntary which uses echo effects.”
