Collect for the 13th Sunday after Trinity

Almighty God,
who called your Church to bear witness
that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:
help us to proclaim the good news of your love,
that all who hear it may be drawn to you;
through him who was lifted up on the cross,
and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.


Our hymn today, Lord Enthroned In Heavenly Splendour, 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.

Plein Jeu

Martin writes: “Elevation by Theodore Dubois is a very simple yet challenging piece as it’s a study in legato (smooth) playing. Dubois was a late romantic french organist, composer and teacher known for his technical books on harmony, counterpoint, and sight-reading. He taught at the Paris Conservatoire (1871–90) and was director there (1896–1905). He wrote music of all types, including operas and choral and orchestral works and is particularly known for his Toccata for organ.

“Plein Jeu comes from the 18th century french organist and composer Pierre du Mage. His main claim to fame was that he played in the inaugural recital on the new organ in Notre Dame in Paris. The noble Plein Jeu begins his Livre d’Orgue. The Plein Jeu was a stop on the french classical organ comprising many other sounds.”
