Sunday Afternoon Music Video: This is the Feast
I learned this great canticle from the Lutheran tradition, based on those amazing texts from Revelation, in my college choir when we sang at a Lutheran church during the Easter season. It was a joy to rediscover it when my daughter Ladybug learned it this week at choir practice for the recessional hymn during today's worship. This isn't the most professional rendition, but the singers are clearly giving it all their hearts, and every word is crystal clear.
I also have many happy memories of singing it for Easter Vespers in my grad school chapel--most joyously, when my oldest was a wiggly toddler delighted with the lighted candles in the dark church, and dancing around during the Magnificat!
What did you sing for the third Sunday of Easter?
