We are the Easter People, year-round

A nice quote from Rory Cooney, good guidance for liturgical planning no matter what the scale of your musical programme:
I try to keep a paschal repertoire active all through the year, so that much of our music can be used on any Sunday and also works well for the Easter season.

So - if someone suggests a new Mass setting or the like, then one of the judgement calls is "could we use this at some time during the Easter Triduum or season(assuming we've learnt it during the year?" If the answer is "no, it's too banal / complicated / dreary / whatever" - then it's probably not fit for a regular Sunday either.
