One of our favourite texts for this time of year is the song Zechariah sings when he regains his voice after naming his son, John (the one who they will later call John the Baptist). This beautiful ancient song of the church, the Benedictus to use its Latin name, is found in the first chapter of Luke. Here’s a simple setting with a rhythmic refrain, allowing you to sing the entire prose version:
