The following is lifted from the current music list on Bristol cathedral's website. Am I the only one to find the anthem choice funny?

3.30pm Choral Evensong with Valediction Preacher: The Dean

Responses: Clucas Psalm 96

Setting: Aston in F

Anthem: Here is the little door - Howells

Hymn: 54; 382; 376

Reminds me of a little church in Weston-super-Mud about 30 years ago. The Rector was deeply unpopular, but rarely went there, preferring the parish church (which was closer to the pub) Shocked When he was seen at the rear of the procession, half of the congregation headed for the door (before he got to his stall).

The organist was a saintly old lady with a wicked sense of humour. Her usual repertoire when His Reverence visited was along the lines of:-

Prelude - Dead March (Saul) - Handel
Introit hymn: Fight the good fight
Gradual hymn (before the sermon) - Tell me the old, old story
Anthem - after the sermon - O clap your hands together all ye people
Final hymn - Now thank we all our God
Postlude - War March of the Priests - Mendelssohn
