Beautiful piece of music. Would love to sing in a choir singing this! The woodwind and brass add so much life to it.

I’m sorry, however, that the quality of the video was so ropey.

What a beautiful way to begin a such a special day! Wishing everyone a blessed Easter celebration of the resurrection of our Lord.
Fr. Paul, thanks for taking the time to post on Easter Sunday. It was such a wonderful suprise to have the opportunity to be able to wish everyone a happy Easter.

Christ is risen, alleluia, alleluia! (You have to imagine the chant!)
Happy Easter to one and all!

Happy Easter to you.

Glory and joy captured in music! Christ is Risen Indeed!!

Sublime, isn’t it? Only beaten by “Spem in Autem,” the 40-part Thomas Tallis work.

Were everyone in the world to listen to this music, how then could anyone disbelieve in God?
Where else could such glorious beauty and goodness come from?
Jesus Christ, God’s Word and Being made flesh, risen from the dead to reign over all that was, is and will be: thank you Christ for the supreme sacrifice you made for us. Thank you Father, thank you Most Holy Spirit, St. Joseph and Blessed Mary, our most Holy Mother of God, sovereign and gracious Queen of Heaven and Earth, for the excruciating pain you all suffered through in seeing your Beloved Son, our Lord, redeemer, brother, king and personal friend, die in agony, nailed to a wooden cross for our sake.
Now He lives in the eternal, glorious light of God, the Alpha and the Omega, The Prince of Peace.
Grant me, and all, the graces needed to listen for, to understand, to know, and to do your will in all things. When I fall, raise me — all I love, and living creation — to stand tall and straight, giving our constant love, praise and gratitude to the Most Holy Trinity, to all the angels and saints, and to all holy men and women, both alive and departed.
Especially bless those who are not of good faith and good will toward you, dear Lord, who hurt others or cause pain and suffering to anyone, any creature, or anything in all creation. Grant them a radical change of heart that they may come to learn, along with us, the plan that Our loving Father set in place for us before our birth.
What a wondrous, beautiful world He created for us. What love He has for us. What need do we have of further miracles? All of creation is resplendent in miraculous garbe, as evidenced in the music you gave us today.
Thank you Father Paul.
Happy Easter Everyone!

You’d think such music would lead to belief, wouldn’t you? My sister-in-law is agnostic or atheist and loves to sing sacred music in a choir. She admires the beauty of the music, but doesn’t resonate with any of its meaning.

Christ is Risen! Truly He has Risen!
Easter Blessings to everyone.

Thank God! I don’t know about you, but this year I need a Resurrection.

On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb.
John 20:1 – Yea!
Many thanks for the Bach piece – Christ’s Love to all, Happy blessed Easter…
You said it in three letters – Yea!

For a more earthy take on the Passion and Easter in a modern context, Michael Sheen has just completed 72 hours of filming in his (and my childhood) home town of Port Talbot. You can get a flavour for it on http://www.port-talbot.com but I think the BBC will be putting it out in its full glory later. Although the poetic licence evident in the film may not be to everyone’s taste, the redemptive story that the film tells and has achieved in its creation is worth an easter egg methinks.

I started to watch the video(s) but didn’t immediately warm to them. I shall give them another bash (when I get back to Chicago where I have access to Flash)

I really didn’t expect many too. From what I can see it is a bit earthy and until I see it in its entirety I’ll hold judgement too. That said, for those who know anything about the area, the redemptive story is uplifting. The whole history of the town is mired in corporate and political berayal, as it is in so many working classes areas. One of a number of recurring human failings which God sacrificed His son for.
