This thoroughly straighforward, but tuneful setting of the Eucharist is intended for congregational singing, with or without the support of a SATB choir, the congregation singing the upper stave throughout. Certain sections such as ’Jesus Lamb of God’ where local conditions permit may be sung by the choir alone. The organ part is intended for 2 manual organ with pedals, and the registration should always be kept bright. The metronome markings are only intended as a rough guide. All the possible variations within Common Worship are included, except the seasonal items (e.g. ’Alleluyas’ at Eastertide)
