Hymns & Music for the 2nd Sunday of Advent 2020 recorded by Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist

Mel writes:-

For the second Sunday of Advent, the theme continues with us looking forward to the coming festival with three new hymns added to the archive. 'Forth in thy name' was first recorded here in August but the others are all ‘oven-ready’ fresh.

AMNS 27 On Jordan's bank the Baptist's cry -

AHONb 669 Songs of thankfulness and praise -

AMNS 25 The advent of our King -

AMNS 239 Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go -

This week's 'bonus item' is J S Bach's chorale prelude on the tune "Sleepers Wake" ("Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme"), an item I normally play in church on most Advent Sundays. This year I recorded it in St Paul's on Tuesday. and I will probably play it in church this Sunday.

All the hymns and other items created since our on-line services began almost nine months ago can still be found at
