Liturgical Hints & Ideas

Be sure to carry some of the exuberance and joy of last night's Vigil of Vigils over into this morning's Masses. Don't skimp on the extra instrumentalists. Some of the music can easily be repeated; most people from the vigil Mass will not be at another Mass today (or if so, they won't mind hearing it again!). The Easter Sunday liturgy does have one special element of its own: the sublime sequence Victimæ paschali. Find a way to perpetuate this treasure in its Gregorian chant form. It is possible for a small ensemble to sing this Latin chant at its place in the liturgy (it does not need to be a congregational event). If you lack a choir capable of the Latin chant, or you want the people involved, I've found no better setting than CNP's Praises to the Paschal Victim by Alex Hill.
