I want to get off to a good start and feel that a = prayer appropriate to our efforts and offering to God would be a great way to begin. Do any of you have a general prayer that you use to open rehearsals or perhaps you only use it the day of the performance. Thoughts and suggestions are needed. Please e mail me directly since this is a bit off topic and since I receive pipechat in digest form ! Thanks, Robert

I think that I found them in a book that = was published by the Royal School of Church Music.   "Almighty God, give us grace to remember that we are in Thy Holy Presence, =   that we may serve Thee with reverence and Godly fear, Through Jesus Christ our Lord," Amen.   "Pardon.

(back) Subject: Notes on Ancient Hymns, a book by James Ostler From: "Ray Kimber" <ray@kimber.com> Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2002 12:58:19 -0600   Dear List,   I have aquired an old book titled, Notes on Ancient Hymns, Hymn Writers = and Church History, by James Ostler. This book was privately published in the UK by the authors family and printed by Sherratt & Hughes of Manchester.   I need some help. I don't know the date of publication and it is not = noted within the book, as far as I can tell. The general look of the book along with some passing references within the text to some dates would indicate after 1830 but before 1900.   Thank you,   Ray Kimber    
(back) Subject: RE: prayer for choirs From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2002 16:33:13 -0400   The third prayer that Bob Conway gave ("Bless, O Lord, us Thy servants who minister in Thy temple...") is the Royal School of Church music prayer. It's a good one.   Another, which I think I saw in the RSCM prayer book in the 1970s. If I remember correctly:   "O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven: be with us, = we pray Thee, as we seek to perfect the praises of Thy children on earth; and grant us even now such glimpses of thy beauty, that we may be made worthy = to behold it unveiled forevermore."   The 1976 Book of Common Prayer has a slightly altered version of this prayer. (As usual, we could not get it across Atlantic without its inscrutably becoming somewhat the worse for wear). I have used it _default_de_mieux_, but distinctly remember that the original is more elegant..
