Some positive replies to my submission of antiphons for Lent has emboldened me to provide some for Eastertide.

Here they are.

Thanks, Gwyn.

I have a chant project in the pipeline, hopefully issuing forth in the next few weeks. Watch this space!

Yes - we have been doing the entrance and communion antiphons for some time now, just to simple chant (Tone 2). This looks like an interesting challenge for a special ocasion - I can't wait to try them out!

Nicely done, John! They have real character and don't just meander.

I'd been interested to hear from anyone who's been using John's Processional as inspiration for other genres of music. :)
