Sunday (on Monday)
There is a lot of singing of liturgy involved in my church, but my favourite part has to be the Agnus Dei, sung after the congregation takes their seats, before going forward to communion. The melancholic in me loves this part. I was trying to find a recording or the name of the tune and composer online the other day, and couldn't, so yesterday I ran off with a hymn book.
Also, I was in a majestic Cathedral for an ordination service on Saturday, seated in the beams from lofty stained glass windows, and we sung this. I was moved, I have to say.
