Lighten our darkness

composed for the christening of Toby William Forbes L’Estrange, 28 January 2007

Third Collect 'For aid against all perils' at Evensong, Book of Common Prayer, 1928

I used to love hearing this prayer at Evensong every night when I was a chorister in Oxford. Indeed, it must have been heard and enjoyed by countless generations at Evensong ever since the days of Cranmer’s first Book of Common Prayer in 1549. What a privilege for me to be able to set it to music, and to sing it at our first son’s christening.
