Subject: RE: Eastertide and Music
I've never tried it, but I can visualise a Good Friday service ending with 'Lord of the dance', but cut short at "They buried my body and they thought I'd gone". Followed by the choir processing out in silence.
Easter Day starts in silence, with the choir bursting into "I am the dance and I still go on" with chorus, final verse & chorus.
Most of the people who go to the Good Friday service (locally at least) will also be at the Sunday service. Although many at the Easter Sunday service may not have been to the Good Friday one.
