23 August 2008

A couple of years ago I attended Epiphany Sunday services at St Mark's Philadelphia before I became a Mystery Worshipper, and found it to be one of the most memorable services I ever attended anywhere, from the "holy pretzel" procession to "We Three Kings", including the censing of the crèche to a magnificent rendition of Menotti's setting for the modern English service, the counterpart to Rite II. They had a virtual brunch that day, too, including great bagels with cream cheese and salmon! No change ringing, unfortunately.
