Collect for the 16th Sunday after Trinity

O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers of your people who call upon you;
and grant that they may both perceive and know what things they ought to do,
and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil them;
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, Glorious things of thee are spoken , was recorded by the musicians of St Martin in the Fields.

The voluntary was recorded by the Director of Music at St Mary’s Beaminster, Martin Schellenberg. It was recorded on the organ St Mary’s Beaminster.

Prelude to the Te Deum

Martin writes: “The two organ pieces this week are as follows. Quiet and reflective – Cantilene by Malcolm Archer is a gentle piece from this illustrious composer who has held positions in Norwich, Bristol, Wells, and St Pauls Cathedrals. Big and bold – The spritely Prelude to the Te Deum by M.A. Charpentier (17th century French composer) needs no instruction, especially if you are a supporter of the Eurovision Song Contest.
