On this day: 3 December 1911 and 1916

On this day in 1911 and 1916, it was the 1st Sunday in Advent at St Luke’s, Chelsea. The anthem at evensong in 1911 was Handel’s ‘Comfort ye, comfort ye my people’, from Messiah. In 1916 it was ‘Lord, for Thy tender mercy’s sake’, at that time attributed to the 16th-century composer Richard Farrant. On both occasions there were two services with music.
