Evelyn Underhill’s notes toward the retreats she gave at Pleshey, as well as her later writings on worship and prayer, include mention of hymns that were important to her both in preparing retreats and hymns and in her own devotion.  On this day of quiet reflection we will listen to the poetry of some of Evelyn’s favourite hymns, sing some of them together, and experience how song and hymnody can become ways of prayer.
