This was my first Induction Service, and it felt a little bit closer to a Coronation because of the intensity I brought to it. I certainly wanted to make an impression with my new boss, as we inducted Ed Bacon as the ninth rector of All Saints Church.
We had both Canterbury and Coventry sing, along with brass quintet, for which I composed my arrangement of Ralph Vaughan Williams' Psalm 91. I remember Ed to be over-the-top excited about all of it, including much care in the choice of all hymns and service music, adding several new congregational pieces to our repertoire, all in that one service.
