EASTER, PENTECOST and TRINITY
Festal pieces for the season of Easter and Afterwards


BELOVED
by Helen Williams
art by Chris Hyde
SATB, eight parts with tenor solo, unaccompanied
Originally a wedding anthem, setting the 'Rise up, my love!' text from the Song of Songs.
LOVE IS THE KEY
Music by Helen Williams
Words by Christina Rossetti
SATB with two-bar bass solo.
The poem '
Song for the least of all saints' alludes to Jesus' post-resurrection appearance to St Peter. It is especially appropriate for Easter season and St Peter's day but her concluding words, "I love Thee" let it fit into almost any act of worship.


for PENTECOST
by Nigel Williams
SATB with organ
Setting the prophecy of Joel, as quoted by St Peter at Pentecost
. Very short, less than one minute.
THIRD MODE DESCANT
Music by Nigel Williams
arranging the Third Mode Melody of Thomas Tallis
Hymn arrangement, with descant, best fitted to the words "How shall I sing that majesty" by John Mason, but alternatively set to 'I heard the voice of Jesus."


HOW CAN IT BE?
Music by Helen Williams
Words by Nigel Williams

2-part, mostly unison, with piano or organ and optional flute.
Celebrating the Visitation and musing on vocation.

This page will allow you to calculate Easter in the Church of England and other western churches from the adoption of the Gregorian calendar in 1752 until the earth, sun or moon slows down so much that it needs to be redefined.
Calculations apply the Gregorian algorithm published by Jean Meeus in Astronomical Algorithms (1991).
