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 -

AMNS 83 Loves redeeming work is done -

AMNS 85 Good Christian men rejoice and sing -

AMNS 84 The Lord is risen indeed -

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 -

Jesus lives thy terrors now -

At the Lamb's high feast we sing -

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son -

Now the green blade riseth -

This joyful Eastertide -

The head that once was crowned with thorns -

There is a green hill far away -

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 -
