Programme Note


The darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

First Epistle of John 2: 8

O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious, and his mercy endureth for ever.
Let them give thanks whom the Lord hath redeemed, and delivered from the hand of the enemy;
And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

Psalm 107: 1-3
