In recent months I have been both flattered and delighted to be invited to join the choirs for the weddings of two separate sets of friends. I would stress that I am not alone in this honour; I think all the guests who can sightread have been so invited. Which, when you think about it, says rather a lot about my particular group of friends...

Anyway, the first of these two weddings is in a couple of weeks, and so, quite apart from the usual palaver of borrowing the car and picking some poor unsuspecting relative to stay with, I have been bashing through Walton's Set me as a seal. The other anthem is I was glad, which I don't need to notebash as we only did it in July, complete with vivats. (My partner has, though, having been bumped up to alto 1 for the occasion.)

And the hymns, of course. The bride writes: in case you'd like to know about hymns (it's always the first thing I want to know about other peoples' weddings!) we're having: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty; Come down O Love Divine; and God is Love, let Heaven adore him (to Abbot's Leigh).

The other wedding is next April. I have been told what the anthems are, but they mostly seemed to be by Rutter, so I have forgotten again.
