Just to be awkward, we did the reverse yesterday - the 'choir' (well, small ad hoc group) sang a worship song (motet?) during Communion, and then went to the altar rail for their own Communion.

Any choir I've been a member of always communed first. I could never understand congregational hymn singing during communion -- as if people are going to carry the hymnal with them up to communion. It's hard enough to juggle books in the pews, let alone juggling them while kneeling with your hands extended to receive the Host. If it's a hymn everyone knows (or should know ) from memory, OK. If the hymn is started when communion is done and "the dishes are being washed," OK. But while the people are receiving? I don't understand it.
