Breathe on me, Breath of God,
fill me with life anew
that I may love the way you love
and do what you would do.
-Edwin Hatch, 1880
At the Prelude, the Plymouth Ringers offer "New Life" by Matt Johnson, a piece celebrating the birth of his newborn son. Cellist Lucas Jackson joins the handbells in this joyous work. The Chancel Choir with flutist Aaron McGrew present "Celtic Communion" by Mark Hayes incorporating the well-known Gaelic tune "Bunessan" (commonly sung to the text "Morning Has Broken.") A fanfare on the hymn tune "Gopsal", the melody of which is attributed to composer G.F. Handel, closes worship in an exciting and concise setting by renowned British composer David Willcocks.
