There were plenty of key scriptural phrases to choose from in planning today’s music. The Gospel reading gave us

It was the stone rejected by the builders
that became the keystone.
This was the Lord’s doing
and it is wonderful to see.

which we sang in the final verse of our opening song. We took the entrance antiphon verbatim in Daniel Bath’s gentle African Gospel-style setting for our song at the preparation of the gifts; and at communion we sang the antiphon from 1 Cor 10:17 in John Foley’s now-venerable and still much-loved setting.
