One thought on “The Office of Compline for July 18, 2010


    I am the director of music at a Catholic church in the city of Christchurch New Zealand. I have been sent by a friend a link to your service of Compline dated July 11, 2010. I was most impressed by the anthem sung by your choir – an adaptation of the famous melody by C H H Parry – “Jerusalem” arranged for choir and guitar by Nathan Jensen. This melody is of course well known in England, (and New Zealand) sung to the words “And did those feet in ancient times…” It is quintessentially an Anglican hymn, and I have long been searching for alternative words which may enable this beautiful tune to be sung in Catholic churches. I am wondering if I may obtain copyright permission to use the lovely words from your adaptation (I can transcribe these from the recording of course), nut also if I could obtain a copy of the lovely choral arrangement as sung in the second a cappella verse. If you could send this as a PDF file, this would be greatly appreciated. Since being made aware of your services of Compline, I have saved the link into my “favourites” and have listened with much pleasure to more recent services from December 2015. It is a beautiful thing that you do, which I’m sure brings much joy to listeners around the world.
    May God’s blessings be always with you.
    Sincerely, Barry Brinson
