There have been two memorial services in Saint Paul's Cathedral for the War in Iraq. The first was to commemorate victory in the initial invasion, it took place in the fall of 2003. The Second one took place in the fall of 2009 when the major British participation in Iraq was complete and Soverignty passed back to the people of the city of Basra. Below is a clip taken from the second service, including the Coronational Fanfare, which is played much to quickly, and the organ comes in much to late, but other then that, a good showing

Something Horrific that I have discovered from the video, if you look at the start of the anthem, you can clearly see the Dome Altar has been stripped! this saddens me greatly :'( I guess it was done to honour those who died. You NEVER strip an altar without good reason. The only time you should ever see an Altar in such a state is 1) if it has a freese on its front and is therefore never dressed, or rather, can never be undressed without vandalism 2) someone is in the act of changing the linen or frontal 3) its late on Good Friday, or Easter Saturday. Its akin to the Jewish King tearing his clothes out of woe...its not something intended, its something thats a response to something really tragic

The news covered the event because the Church of England has NEVER been supportive of the War, like a referendum would have shown, the Populas did not back the Governments decision, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, apparently used his address to say as much, infront of Queen, and the Parliamentarians who authorised the decision.

Can you say...Awkward...for the Politicians and Soldiers who had to listen to it? The Church of England Famously refused to "Pray Fr Victory" over Iraq, stating that the Church doesnt do that sort of things with Wars, but this was the first time they ever stressed that. Even the Crucifix hanging in the pulpit behind him has been removed. Clearly, they are making a reference, to the absence of Christ in the conflict...thats why the Altars are stripped and during Lent often statues are removed or covered, its to symbolize their absense at a point where in Chronology it looked like Christ has failed. I am very suprised that Williams dared to do this. Whilst I may aggree with him in this instance, I have great disdain for the guy for most of the other things he does and says. He famously uttered that he didnt care about State Religion, and he famously uttered that many parts of Sharia Law pertaining to civil dissagreements should be implimented. Disgusting from someone in his office.

What IS strange though is the Cope that he is wearing, that is NOT one of ours, not unless they have had a new set made, which I doubt considering the fact the rest of Chapter is in the Reds that I recognise. WHY are they wearing Red. October the 9th is not a Major Feast Day....are they REALLY dressed in Red to signify Martyrdom??? Unbelievable!! It would be more customery to wear black, the Churchill Copes for example...Clearly this is a statement. The Church is blaming the Government for the loss of lives during the Iraqi Conflict, and they are BOLDLY stating this, from the Altar frontal (or lack there of...not even Red...but beyond red....absence of colour) to their Blood Red copes! Thats Harsh...I think far TOO Harsh for a Christian Memorial Service. Lets face it, regardless of what you think of the legitamcy of the war, it happened, and it happened a long time ago...what good does it do, after its all over, to make a fresh statement of condemnation...embarissing the service personnel, embarissing the Government...when you as a Church used political unbiasness as an excuse not to pray for victory in the first place. Thats Really Low!

David Fanshawe, the English composer, died last month apparently, he was most famous for his African Sanctus, which across the whole setting of a Latin Mass, juxtaposed the Roman Catholic Mass, against Tribal Worship of Native Africans. As well as being a Christian mass, it reflects an interesting interpretation of the history of evangelism througout Africa, often the Chruch Music is loud, abrasive, and dommineering over the African chants, one movement almost relates a call and response outline, thats very strange and hard to listen to actually

Two movements are the best known, the Sanctus itself, and his version of The Lords Prayer both below

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnPfEfSTcp8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIi31nmIMLU Its actually a beautiful setting of what is usually quite a boring prayer musically by this time of course you are drawring the mass almost to a close, is it any wonder the African has been almost passified into an echoing operatic voice...where once it was strangely wild and at odds, now it seems to have fallen in line

I dont quite know what Fanshawe was actually trying to show in this setting

Most of your will probably know that I am a Royalist...well do you know what struck me about the above music video, wasnt Queen Elizabeth...so much as The first scene where Her Mother, Elizabeth Also in name is greeted at the doors of Saint Paul's Cathedral Whatever she was wearing...it SO worked!

Oh...and she was Greeted by the Lord Mayor who is symbolising the Political City of London...thats not a Canon or the Dean.
