A setting of the Collect for Quinquagesima by that enthusiastic amateur musician who, in his journals, has left such a wonderful record of music-making in England at the end of the eighteenth century. This edition has been prepared from James Page's Harmonia sacra, 1800. The figured bass has been replaced by a reduction, principally with rehearsal in mind. During Marsh's lifetime, it was increasingly common for organs to be encountered in country parishes.
Lyrics: Collect for Quinquagesima, BCP 1662

O LORD, who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth; Send thy Holy Ghost, and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth is counted dead before thee. Grant this for thine only Son Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.
