Those of you who were able to attend a service this weekend were able to sing “The King of Glory My Shepherd Is” after the Mass. Last night, I re-discovered an arrangement of this hymn for chorus and harp by conductor and composer John Rutter, which you can listen to here.

The text from today’s Offertory is from Psalm 9: “They that know thy Name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee: O Praise the Lord, which dwelleth in Sion: for he forgetteth not the complaint of the poor.”

One composer who has set this text (in Latin) is the 20th-century Hungarian composer Lajos Bárdos (1899–1986), a prominent student of a famous teacher, Zoltán Kodály (1882–1967). You may listen to his meditative setting of today's Offertory text here. (It may challenge your prejudices about 20th-century music!)

Finally, J. S. Bach composed a remarkable cantata to be sung on the third Sunday after Trinity. You may learn more about it and listen to a performance here.

Happy listening!
