When Jesus Comes to be Baptized is written by the Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. In the Divine Office (1974) it is sung on the Sunday after January 6th, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. It is set to the tune: Winchester New by Bartholomäus Crasselius (1667-1724), first published in the Mu­si­kal­isch­es Hand­buch of 1690.
