All Saints' Day

As celebrated at Mount Olivet Methodist United Church with the processional hymn For All the Saints. Bishop William Walsham How's stirring words and Ralph Vaughn William's splendid tune, Sine Nomine.

One of my favourite Sundays in the Church commemorating and honouring all those faithful enduring and endearing ones who have gone before us.

This year I played it at home on the piano, faithfully.....

One of my favourite hymns Hildred. I play it on the piano too - I love the way it begins with that note in the bass.

Oh yes Weaver, that G is so bold yet settling, - a great introduction to a wonderful hymn that can be sung with such gusto!
