I love alleluias.
Sure, the word means “praise the Lord” and I’m not big on the word “Lord”, but as a word of praise, it’s gorgeous and lyrical and pretty much no matter how its sung, I am in. This one’s in a pretty round from an unknown source, one that I wish all choirs had in their back pocket and could pull out at a moment’s notice to punctuate a part of the service as needed. A sermon on hope? This. A reading that opens us up? This. Easter? Well, of course this.
And the truth is, there’s not much more to say. This is lovely piece that will get stuck in my brain for the rest of the morning.
The image is what came up when I typed “alleluia” into the Pixabay search bar. Told you this section could get weird…
