Friends,

Here is the week’s page. It includes settings of today’s Introit from Psalm 27 by two 19th-20th-century composers who were new to me, and whose work I hope our own choir can sing some day.

Since today’s Gospel is about the disciples of Jesus casting their nets, I included a recording of and the text to the hymn “They cast their nets in Galilee” and a bit of information about the poet who wrote that hymn.

That page also includes an introduction to a Bach cantata based on the “fishers of men” theme in today’s Gospel. (Bach somehow expanded Jesus’ words to Peter to suggest that some of the apostles would become hunters of men, and he brought in the sound of hunting horns to underline the novel imagery.)

Finally, you may have noticed that I have been including each week the text of poems by two important Anglican hymn-writers, John Keble and Christopher Wordsworth. Both of them wrote collections of poetry containing verse for every Sunday and major feast day in the year.

Happy listening (and reading),

Ken Myers
