I have observed that it is a difficult thing to sustain Easter Time over its fifty days. Flowers wilt and spirits sag.
The Liturgy of the Hours and the Eucharistic and Lectionary Antiphonaries (Roman Gradual, Simple Gradual, and Roman Missal) ply their alleluias valiantly.
But the songs chosen for entrance and communion processions and the antiphons chosen for the responsorial psalms seem deaf, for the most part, to the ubiquitous “E.T. Alleluia,” “P.T. Alleluia,” and “Or: R/. Alleluia” of the official books and those that follow them (e.g., By Flowing Waters, Psallite, and Simple English Propers).
Is this your experience too? Or have you found ways (music, environment, number of ministers, vesture, to name a few) to sustain the newness of Easter?
