Hymns and Music for Easter 2021, recorded by Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist

Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist, writes:

A happy Easter to you!

I look forward to opening up the full power of St Paul’s organ on Sunday, after an appropriately subdued Lent. I have added four Easter hymns to our online music resource as suggestions for this week’s online service.

AMNS 73 Ye choirs of new Jerusalem - https://youtu.be/HtAH6_84Zko

AMNS 83 Loves redeeming work is done - https://youtu.be/V8G3cXVleJI

AMNS 85 Good Christian men rejoice and sing - https://youtu.be/s1IxPNSFP5M

AMNS 84 The Lord is risen indeed - https://youtu.be/oVtsuiCJdL0

Singing seems a great way to express our Easter joy but in case your favourite isn’t listed this year, there are also the Easter hymns added a year ago such as:

The day of resurrection - https://youtu.be/FquqsZ1iySo

Jesus lives thy terrors now - https://youtu.be/3nlr6vraOUk

At the Lamb's high feast we sing -https://youtu.be/htbLgaqpv0Q

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son - https://youtu.be/21WzFNcK224

Now the green blade riseth - https://youtu.be/4Pdejbi37lI

This joyful Eastertide - https://youtu.be/WmTjQp2_vgA

The head that once was crowned with thorns - https://youtu.be/Y8x7UWJxbGA

There is a green hill far away - https://youtu.be/Ac71j1EtsIo

I hope that’s enough to keep you singing at home while we can’t do it inside the church building. If you need something for calm reflection, here’s a bonus of 'Caswall' (Glory be to Jesus) by Peter Hurford played at Holcombe - https://youtu.be/MSc7gqQe3VA.
