The bidding was longer the you would expect. The first Hymn was All People that on Earth do dwell...but this is one particular tune that the Abbey does better...it has the proper fanfare that they tried in Saint Paul's but it didnt work so well I will admit that the Abbey version of this is the best I have ever heard. They have a trumpet that does a harmony part over the top and its one of the most beautiful harmonies I have ever heard, and then they swap on the penultimate verse and the Quire actually sing the harmony and the Trumpet plays the melody
