Ruth Enns spoke on the binding of Isaac by Abraham in Genesis 22:1-14, and referred to Benjamin Britten’s musical re-enactment of the story based on the 15th-Century Chester Mystery Plays. What a blessing that most of us are never tested to this extent, and that God is faithful in his ongoing care for people.

NOTE: a BBC recording in 2013 of the full 18-minute performance of “Abraham and Isaac” by Benjamin Britten featuring Ruby Hughes (Soprano), James Gilchrist (Tenor), and Imogen Cooper (Piano) is available on YouTube.
