Collect for the 12th Sunday after Trinity

Almighty and everlasting God,
you are always more ready to hear than we to pray
and to give more than either we desire or deserve:
pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy,
forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid
and giving us those good things
which we are not worthy to ask
but through the merits and mediation
of 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 Brother Sister Let Me Serve You 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.

March from the Occasional Overture

Martin writes: There are two organ pieces this week. The first piece this week is the lovely Aria by Flor Peeters. He was a Belgian composer, organist, and academic teacher and was director of the Conservatoire in Antwerp and organist of Mechelen Cathedral from 1923 until his death in 1986. The tune, in the right hand, is accompanied by pulsing chords in the left whilst the pedal part holds it all together. The second piece is the well-known March from the Occasional Overture by George Frederick Handel and if you listen carefully you may hear the Zimbelstern towards the end.
