It is over 10 years since we have celebrated a 7th Sunday of Easter. I always think of today's psalm response as my least favourite - unnecessarily archaic. We did use the straight response but in times past I have adapted a setting of The Lord is compassion and love to The Lord rules the heavens and the earth.
The piece at Communion was an even older resurrection. Iona words to a familiar Irish folksong I arrenged a simple second part for parish I was in in North London over 25 years ago. We sang it, unaccompanied, at the end of Communion on Maundy Thursday - myself and an Irish soprano from the choir.
