While planning the Easter Season I did look over what we have done in previous years. Sometimes you can forget local ideas and solutions. As I suspect I have mentioned in previous years I find Easter not an easy season to prepare music for. I think it is because I find the horizontal and vertical aspects of the Lectionary more opaque than other seasons. By this I mean how the passages relate together on one Sunday coupled with how the semi-continuous Sunday by Sunday passages work. You could suggest that there is a further dimensions which is how the Sundays in each cycle relate - for example this Gospel is common to all three years. On other Sundays there some correlation between the Gospels in each cycle.
It is a very rich Gospel. We went more to towards Thomas rather than 'Peace be with you' and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
