Stow Candlemas Eucharist, originally uploaded by gordonplumb.

My absence is due in the most part to busyness in the parish. One of the things I've been working on is the liturgy for a solemn Eucharist for Candlemas. This took place in the glorious surroundings of Stow Minster last Sunday 31st of January. The following photo, taken by Gordon Plumb, shows the Gloria being sung in the twelfth century chancel at Stow.
