Thread Name: Eastertide and Music
Subject: RE: Eastertide and Music
Nice to see to see this thread pop up after talking about Now the Green blade riseth/Sing we now of Christmas and playing it yesterday. With Ash Wednesday so early this year, it is time to start planning what to sing.

I do like the idea of using Carter's Lord of the Dance, but another of his strikes me at perfect: Bitter was the Night. There just aren't too many things to sing on Good Friday, and this song makes me appreciate the creepiness of Judas' betrayal and suicide that get under your skin and make you think about the Passion in a visceral way. There's lots of the same-old, same-old like Hail thee Festival Day and Were You There that I can live without.
