A good mix of music for this special occasion. The text of today’s Gospel acclamation echoes lines from the Easter sequence:
Tell us, Mary: say
what thou didst see upon the way.
– The tomb the Living did enclose;
I saw Christ’s glory as he rose!
so we sang these words to the corresponding portion of the melody from Victimae Paschali.
Mary-Liz Walker was the soloist in Shaun Davey’s haunting setting of St Patrick’s Breastplate.
