March 29, 2015 | Palm Sunday

Two additions this year:

One Day by Matisyahu 
Some of our younger singers will sing this one.

Comes and Goes in Waves by Greg Laswell
Perhaps a solo, slower, mellower version.

Hello and welcome to Holy Week.

Overall keeping a quiet, contemplative tone for Palm Sunday.

Over the years many of the Grace folk, regular musicians and otherwise, have written songs—lyrics, music or both. I am including some of these chants/songs here.  Caroline Clucas and Scott Lawrence are both huge contributors to our Grace music circle. Their music and poetry is thoughtful and very moving. Feel free to use these songs in your services with credits listed below.

Open My Heart to Your Light and Truth by Ruth Cunningham from Music By Heart

Kyrie by Paul Merritt

This one was written during our Lenten evening program last year-- a group effort, mostly kids!
Written by Grace Episcopal Church Lenten Program 2012

Comes Jesus to Jerusalem
Music: Jesu dulcis memoria, plainsong, Mode 2 from Hymnal 1982 (#134)
Text: Scott Lawrence

Much Abides from Tennyson, music by Ann Strickland

Chords: NC (pick up notes), A, C3m/G#, F#m, D

What Wondrous Love/Chant by Ann Strickland. Inspired by the American folk hymn.
When Jesus Entered Jerusalem
Music: Traditional; Lyric: Scott Lawrence

Desert Winds by Caroline R. Clucas
Not quite for Palm Sunday, but a great Lenten piece.

ONE more. Last year we ended with a beautiful solo a capella version of
Winter Sky by Billy Edd Wheeler. The congregation then exited in silence. Powerful.

Judy Collins - Winter Sky from drakemerchant on Vimeo.
