Psalm 19:1-5; Rev. 15:3b,4:11

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.


The heavens declare the glory of God (published 1790), composed by William Boyce (1711-1779)

Performed by Guildford Cathedral Choir, Gavin Williams (organ), directed by Barry Rose

The Angel Binding Satan (c. 1797) – by Philip James de Loutherbourg

Revelation 20:1-3 [Latin]

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.


Et vidi angelum, composed by Marco Galvani (b. 1994)


Performed by The Choir of the Queen’s College, Oxford, directed by Owen Rees
