Music for "Christ the King Sunday" - Cantate Domino (Giuseppe Pitoni)

Today is the Sunday before Advent (a certain Christian festival for which material has been in the shops for months is finally beginning to appear over the horizon of most people's view of the not-too-distan t future.) 

It is officially known as the feast of Christ the King, and informally as "Stir Up Sunday" from the prayer after communion which begins "Stir up, O Lord, the hearts of your faithful people." 

So I thought I should post an appropriate anthem, and I found a forum on the internet for organists and choirmasters in which there was a discussion on what they were preparing for today. My favourite among those suggested was "Cantate Domino" (which is Latin for "Sing to the Lord") by Pitoni, performed here by the Christopher Wren singers.
