5th Sunday of Easter, Year A

What we sang 

  • Entrance:   Seek Ye First - Karen Lafferty
  • Gloria:  Peruvian
  • Psalm:  - spoken
  • Gospel acclamation:  Alleluia, alleluia Give thanks ... Fishel
  • Offertory: - instrumental
  • Communion:   Servant Song - Richard Gillard
  • Sending:  Hail Queen of Heaven

What I'd like to have sung:

The Celtic Alleluia, and in particular some of its verses.    People in Ireland do know this, but for some reason it's hardly every sung.    Maybe they just don't like the word "celtic" - people overseas don't realise how much some Irish despise this term, which is a catch-all for a whole collection of sub-national groups today.

And I'm sure there's another hymn I know with "The Way, The Truth and the Life" in it - can't think of it any more though.

HQOH was put on because it's May, so "Mary's month" in the northern hemisphere.
