A little traveling music for All Saints'

Yes, I know All Saints' Day isn't until Tuesday and that most protestant churches that do observe this ancient holy day of the church won't do so until the following Sunday. But tonight is beggars' night in Chariton --- and I have to remember to go buy another package of candy bars to replace the one I've already eaten.

So here as traveling music is the great Anglican All Saints' Day hymn, "For All the Saints," sung to Ralph Vaughan Williams' Sine Nomine setting as the All Saints' recessional during 2014 at St. James Episcopal Church in Los Angeles. The officiant was Suffragan Bishop Diane Jardine Bruce --- and that's a talented thurifer, too, showing off for the camera.
