The anthem Laudibus in sanctis by William Byrd, with words in a paraphrase of Psalm 150

Laudibus in sanctis Dominum celebrate supremum,
Firmamenta sonent inclita facta Dei.
Inclita facta Dei cantate, sacraque potentis
Voce potestatem saepe sonate manus…..

Celebrate the Lord most high in holy praises:
Let the firmament echo the glorious deeds of God.
Sing ye the glorious deeds of God, and with holy voice
Sound forth oft the power of his mighty hand…..

The reflection ends with the processional Hymn:

For all the Saints, who from their labour rest

by the Rt. Revd. William Walsham How (1864)
