Cathedral, London, on 3rd June 2022 by the choirs of St Paul’s Cathedral and Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal conducted by Andrew Carwood, with William Fox, organ. [ SPACE} Happy is the one who finds Wisdom;
the one who gains understanding.

Her price is greater than silver;
her profit is better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels;
all that you desire cannot compare with her.

Long life is in her right hand;
in her left are riches and honour.
Her ways are the ways of pleasantness;
and all her paths are peace.

She is a tree of life to those who grasp her;
and those who hold her fast are blessed.
By Wisdom, the Lord laid the foundations of the earth;
he established the heavens by understanding.

Proverbs, Chapter 3
