Wonderful Words from the Wonderful Service Celebrating the Wonderful Life of Leonora Haynes

March 9, 2012

Holy is the true light, and passing wonderful, lending radiance to them that endured in the heat of the conflict: from Christ they inherit a home of unfailing splendour, wherein they rejoice with gladness evermore. Alleluia.

[Approximately 25 members of St. Paul’s shared in the Celebration of the Life of Cyril’s mother, Leonora Haynes, at the Cathedral on March 6. The above words of the Salisbury Diurnal, translated by G. H. Palmer, were printed in the Order of Service. The music by Sir William Harris (1883-1973) to these words was sung as an anthem by the Choir. A version of this piece, sung by the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, is embedded below.]
