- WATERMEAD STORY The music was composed on the day that Monty died. He and Sheila had gone home to his native Ireland for a holiday where, sadly, he had fallen and died. Sheila was to bring his body back to his home parish in England for burial, and the wording was written to reflect the love and longing we all share of "home". The finished hymn was given to Sheila on her return and, a few days later, a full church all sang Monty's hymn at his Requiem Mass. See the Watermead Apostolate website for pictures of Monty and Sheila. BACKGROUND TO OUR LAMINATED HYMN WORDINGS Making our hymns available as presentation laminate began when Lee asked if the words of ‘O Child’ could be framed as a gift for a new baby in her family. Other requests followed, asking for framed hymns for a variety of occasions, and once designs have been set we added them to this collection. We have them available as framed prints in our shop - but not through the website. People can, however, ask us for unlaminated prints and then frame them themselves (the pricing is the same).
