"I am guessing the choral piece you're referring to is Jerusalem with text by
William Blake and later set to music by Edward Elgar, unless you're
referring to one of the acappella hymns."

The one I'm asking about  was sung just by the choir. 

 "Jerusalem" I did recognize, as well as "Guide me O thou Great Jehovah'" a personal favorite.
