Easter Sunday morning always attracts a number of people - but it was good to see many of the regulars from both morning and evening Masses ready to sing their parts.

This year I have resurrected my adaptation of or settings based on Lux et Origo Mass chants for the Penitential Act and Lamb of God instead of using the Mass of Wisdom all the way through. This is less a reflection of the quality of those parts of the Wisdom settings (which is fine) rather there is a unity of smooth sameness that to me needs a little more grit - or at last a difference of texture.
