Programme Note


When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have ordained,

What is man, that you should be mindful of him;
the son of man, that you should seek him out?

You have made him little lower than the angels
and crown him with glory and honour.

You have given him dominion over the works of your hands
and put all things under his feet.

O Lord our governor,
how glorious is your name in all the world.

Psalm 8: 4–10

Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God
as a little child will never enter it.

Mark 10: 15

I will bless the Lord at all times;
his praise shall ever be in my mouth.

My soul shall glory in the Lord;
let the humble hear and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me;
let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.

Psalm 34: 1–4

Truly I tell you .
