Liturgical Hints & Ideas

The theme of light can be utilized in both hymns and anthems today. Settings of Psalm 112 (Beatus vir) may be particularly appropriate ("He dawns through the darkness, a light for the upright."). This may be the last Sunday before Lent; many of the Protestant churches celebrate the Transfiguration today, a last glimpse of glory before the discipline of Lent. At the least, our liturgies today should be filled with "alleluias" in hymns and anthems, pointing out the disparity with the more somber liturgies which begin with Ash Wednesday.
