One of my oldest friends, Peter Floyd, had his relationship with his long-term partner, Felix McLymont, formalised at a civil partnership ceremony on 26 May 2007. Prior to the legal ceremony the couple had a Sung Eucharist service in Southwark Cathedral where Peter has been not only a bass in the choir for many years but also a Churchwarden. I wanted to find a text from the scriptures for this motet which somehow managed to say the right things for a same-sex couple. I found what I wanted in an amalgamation of verses from Psalms 21, 26 and 27 which were approved by the cathedral and which begin:
You have given him his heart’s desire,Starting simply, the piece moves into eight-part, double-choir formation at the words “O Lord I love the house and the place where your glory abides”. In the warmth and richness of its choral textures it is a heartfelt tribute to two close friends.
And have not withheld the request of his lips.
For you meet him with rich blessings.
You bestow on him blessings for ever.
