Good Friday...

I thought I'd try a photo of the High Altar in a sepia tone, because it looked so stark and bare. I like the sepia tone - black and white seems less effective (although I think black and white works better for portrait shots - one of the only pictures of myself that I like is a black and white photo!)

I found myself in tears during the veneration of the Cross. The choir sang O sacred head ill-used, which is one of my favourite hymns. Fr. Tim Finigan is seen here, creeping to the Cross in stockinged feet, along with Michael Baldry, our deacon...

A few more photos can be seen on my Flickr page.

Can I be controversial here and say that I much prefer the "Sacred Head ill-used" version of lyrics to that of "Sacred head sore-wounded"?

Dilly, that's not controversial, it's just a plain statement of fact - the lyrics to the "ill-used" version simply *are* better than those of the other version!
;-p
