What do you play for a Deanery Synod Mass?

Having been booked to play for a Deanery Synod Mass (Pontifical, no less) last Tuesday evening when all sensible people were at home eating pancakes, I pondered long and hard what might be a suitable final voluntary.

 

I have to admit I forgot that Quentin told me a while ago that our mutual friend the new Rural Dean is rather partial to the War March of the Priests and, anyway, the Deanery Synod has laity as well as clergy (although some of the laity are pretty warlike). In the end I went for Bach BWV 680, prelude on "We all believe in one God" (and I'm not even sure how true that was!).

 

What would you have played and why?

I did a mass for a priestly ordination in one of the bascilicas in Rome a couple of years back. The candidate requested that I play Scotson-Clarke's Marche aux Flambeaux!

 

Such fun!

 

And Brighton congregations absolutely love it - almost as muchg as they love that awful Sortie in E flat by the other, French, bloke!
