Harvest Festival hymns and music recorded by Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist, for 4th October 2020

Mel writes:

Although I like to add new material, at heart I’m rather a traditionalist church musician. Some of our minor annual festivals seem to bring out the musically-conservative (with a small “c”) in me. This week in church we will mark Harvest and despite whatever limitations our present circumstances force on us, there is still a huge amount for which I am grateful. Three of this week’s hymns are new to the YouTube hymn archive.
