First service with the new recorder! This allows us to record services over 80 minutes such as this one effectively without interruption. You'll note some unpleasant overmodulation in the loudest parts, which we will adjust for in the future.

There was some parts of the worship that didn't record very well so this podcast ends with the prayers.  The Choir is worth listening too.
