Like a number of Sundays in Year C there is an alternative psalm today. I am not sure if the alternative, Psalm 94, was an addition with the 2nd edition and so was meant to clarify the text or is offered as a more familiar alternative to Psalm 89. We went with Psalm 89. So, to crudely paraphrase not - now is the time to listen to God's word - but - now is very short make the most of it.

In the land was when Bernadette Farrell worked for the Eastern pastoral area of Westminster diocese and the diocese was celebrating a Year of the Eucharist. It shows, I think, the influence of the 'Dutch school': Huijbers and Oosterhuis, particularly in the verses. To the strong text and melody Bernadette brings a propulsive harmony.
