EASTER SEASON - A TIME TO REJOICE!
Easter is a wonderful time to celebrate. Just as Easter is the most important Christian feast, so too, the Easter season is the longest of the special liturgical seasons of the Church. It extends from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday - 50 days and encompasses such major feasts as Divine Mercy Sunday and Ascension. Music in the Liturgy plays an important role in helping people enter into this season and to fully and prayerfully participate.
Willow Publishing is adding new compositions to its catalogue on a daily basis. Australian Liturgical composer Erica Marshall has been busy writing some wonderful compositions for the Easter/Pentecost season including Come All of You, (originally written for the three Scrutiny Sundays), Sequence for Easter, Sequence for Pentecost, Easter Intercessions and the versatile piece O Sacred Flame.
We have received very positive feedback on the song selections flyer for The Year of Mercy, all written by our own Australian composers. Download your list of hymns/song here. There is something for every occasion in the life of the church community.

liturgical song selection - planning tool gets the thumbs up!The popular LITURGICAL SONG SELECTIONS
provides an easy and practical means of locating songs/hymns based on the lectionary readings for the day and psalm responses and Mass settings. In addition to the liturgical selections we have included a list of seasonal/thematic song selections for catechetical use.
When you click on an individual song title in the LITURGICAL SONG SELECTIONS section of the website, you will be taken to a page where you can listen to a sound sample (if available), preview the music score and buy single copies of the sheet music and/or the mp3. If you are involved in planning music for worship you will know how important it to choose appropriate music in keeping with the season of the Church, and music that resonates with the scriptures of the day. This new planning tool will support you in your ministry of pastoral music and save you many hours in researching the scriptures, themes and musical choices for each Sunday. The recommendations draw on compositions contained within the popular As One Voice editions and collections published by Willow Publishing and a range of new material.
