Postcommunion Christus Factus Est (Felice Anerio, c.1560-1614)
Recessional Christ triumphant, ever reigning

The same breezier rendition of Anerio’s setting of Philippians 2:8-9 as on this Sunday three years ago, compared with a more solemn Good Friday version. One of today’s Communion antiphons, from 1 John 3:16 was

By this we came to know the love of God:
that Christ laid down his life for us;
so we ought to lay down our lives for one another.

The refrain for our Communion song:

Herein is love: God became one with us.

echoed this, and another line from the first letter of St John:

This is the love I mean:
not our love for God
but God’s love for us when he sent his son
to be the sacrifice that takes our sins away.
