Sunday music spot: Eccard's When to the Temple Mary Went

This magnificent piece of music, which is not sung nearly as often as it deserves, is most often performed on the feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, for which it was of course written, or for Epiphany generally.

However, as the anthem commemorates Jesus coming to Jerusalem, in my opinion it is also suitable for Palm Sunday.

A wonderful recording of Eccard's masterpiece as sung by the Choir of King's College Cambridge.
