"What sounds good to YOU for Eastertide?"
I play recorder and percussion with a flautist and a pianist. This morning I prepared a high version of 'Beautiful Savior' to play as the prelude. It was lovely! The pianist played quietly and let us take center stage.
We also did 'This Joyful Eastertide,' a 17th C hymn which has measures in 4/4 and in 6/4. The congregation handled it just fine.
Now I'm interested in a tune from the 15th C., O Sons and Daughters Let Us Sing. When my band gets together, the earlier the better.
