Sunday Music

Katherine Jenkins with the Morriston Tabernacle Chapel congregation, Wales, singing the hymn Here is Love Vast as the Ocean.

Peace and love, like mighty rivers,
Flowed incessant from above.
Heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love.

This is one omy favourite hymns. The words are really moving.

This isn't a Mormon building or congregation though. It looks like the chapel I visited when i spent the summer in the UK a few years ago. That would make it a variant of Presbyterianism -- the Welsh version.

That said, no group of people sing like the Welsh. I was able to attend two music festivals while in Wales. The singing just about knocked me out of my chair.

Hi James, a quick look at Wiki says this place is the "Nonconformist Cathedral of Wales." No indication of LDS as I skimmed further. I was in the Washington DC temple before it was closed to the public in the mid-1970s, and you are right, this isn't their style!

I've seen Baptist churches with "tabernacle" in their names...
