Crowdsourced Liturgy for Pentecost

I need your voice:

For the Pentecost worship as a part of the Archbishop’s Call for Prayer, we at Holy Ground at Exeter Cathedral are creating something different, unique and special and we’d like your voice to be a part of it.

I need this recorded: (instructions are below)

Give us a zeal to work for your Kingdom on earth, protecting creation, striving for peace
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

Breathe on us Lord, expel our sinfulness, stir us up to stand for justice
Christ have mercy
Christ have mercy

Set us on fire with a Passion burning in our hearts for the Lord, to reach out to the marginalised
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy


  1. If you have a phone like an iPhone or an Android, there is usually an app to record your voice – often called “Voice Memo” or some thing similar. I use a free Android App called ASR which can be installed for free from  If you have better recording equipment, then even better, but I have found that most smartphones are good enough nowadays. You can configure it to record at quite a good quality: I would suggest 192k in MP3 or MP4 format if that means anything to you. If not, just record it as it comes and I will do spooky mysterious things with it with electronics.
  2. iPhones will record in the very nice .M4a format. This is fine, but please try and set it to the highest quality you can.
  3. Read (nicely and in the highest possible quality)  the above text. Click here to see the optimum settings in ASR…
  4. After recording select “Share” (or similar) and email it to me at
  5. It would be really helpful if you named the file with your name. This will help me collate them.
  6. I will cut it up with all the others and make these into a cool video using the multiplicity of voices, accents, genders etc.
  7. Can you tell others and ask them to do it for me please so I get lots and lots of voices.
  8. This is an offshoot of a bigger project: a desire to record in this way all 150 Psalms please visit to add your voice by recording any of the outstanding Psalms.

Thank you.
