Vaughn Williams, "For All the Saints", to honor those who survived Halloween costume parties unscathed

I don’t think I’ve ever presented this hymn online, “For All the Saints”, on “All Saints Day”, on Nov. 1, with music by Ralph Vaughn Williams.

When November comes to the DC area, it is usually mild for another week or two, and the leaves have finally changed, and you know that the calendar year is winding down.
And the costume season is over.  You find out who survived Halloween with their bods intact.
Saints are not the same thing as angels.  Saints have really sacrificed.
Gender fluidity goes back down a little bit.
