Choral Eucharist - Ascension Day

Ascension Day


Psalm: 47


Hymns: See printed sheet


Setting: Missa Sancti Joannis de Deo (Haydn)


Anthem: God is gone up (Gerald Finzi)


A Choral Eucharist is the same as a said Eucharist, except with the addition of glorious organ music and choral pieces, hymns in which the congregation joins the singing, and a homily or sermon. This usually takes place on Sunday mornings and at other times on special festival days.

The Choral Eucharist is almost always located in the nave; the service lasts for a hour or more, depending on the choice of music and other elements of the service.
