Sir, — I note that a Grace thanking God for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was published on Monday 12 March (News, 16 March).

Your readers may like to know that on a panel in the medieval rood-loft gallery of St Mary’s, Ather­ington, north Devon, there is a reson­ant prayer that celebrates Queen Eliza­beth I (which I have set to music): “O Lord, save thy Church, our gracious Queen Elizabeth, and send us truth and peace in Christ. Amen.”
