Never let it be said that ADU is not catholic ... at least in taste: Tommy Tallis zooms into Holy Week favour with this song
Spem in alium
Spem in alium nunquam habui
praeter in te, Deus Israel,
qui irasceris et propitius eris,
et omnia peccata hominum
in tribulatione dimittis.
Domine Deus, creator caeli et terrae
respice humilitatem nostram.
My hope have I never put in any
but in you, God of Israel,
who will be angry and again be gracious,
and who forgives all the sins of humanity
in their time of trial.
Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth,
have regard for our lowliness.
Thomas Tallis (1505-85)
As well, I note here a very heartening initiative from Christchurch church leaders who have written and signed a letter of unified support for Bishop Victoria Matthews in respect of the controversy here about our decision to deconstruct our cathedral.
