The souls of the righteous), Cœlos ascendit hodie (trans. Christ is ascended on high today) and Beati quorum via (trans. Blessed are those that are undefiled), plus Vaughan Williams’ Lord, Thou hast been our refuge, Holst’s Nunc Dimittis, Stanford’s Latin Magnificat and the ‘Collegium Regale’ Te Deum by Herbert Howells.
