The Responsorial Psalm today was from Ps 32(33). As well as Alan Rees’s setting, we had Viadana’s exuberant version of the opening verses. Our opening song was from the second reading, from 1 Peter.
We prefaced Samuel Webbe’s sunny setting of the Eastertide Marian antiphon, mainly for upper voices, with the plainchant melody, sung by the men of the choir.
