I won't be blogging for the Triduum; our family's participation in our parish choir means that we will be very, very busy from Thursday through the Easter Vigil.
Before I go, though, I'd like to ask two Easter-related questions, one silly, one not. First, the silly one:
What is your favorite kind of Easter candy?
Now the not-silly one:
What is your favorite piece of Easter (not Lenten, not Holy Week, but Easter) music?
My favorite candy, since chocolate is a migraine trigger for me and I avoid it, are those Reese's white chocolate peanut butter eggs. I know some people hate the combo of white chocolate and peanut butter filling, but I find the sweet/salty contrast really enjoyable.
My favorite piece of Easter music is more difficult to nail down. I love all sorts of Lent/Holy Week music, including Ah, Holy Jesus, O Sacred Head Surrounded, and all the Latin pieces we can sneak in (we're doing Anton Bruckner's C Major setting of the Tantum Ergo for Holy Thursday). But many Easter hymns, like this setting of Jesus Christ is Risen Today, while lovely to listen to, are murder on a soprano's vocal range (well, on mine, anyway; these days I struggle with anything below the middle "C"). So I'd have to say that I'm most looking forward to singing the Regina Coeli on Divine Mercy Sunday (which falls, by happy coincidence, on May 1st this year).
How about you? Favorite Easter candy--favorite Easter song?
Have a blessed and holy Triduum and a Joyful Eastertide!
(Oh, and if I don't blog Easter Monday it's because that's when we're having the termite treatment done.)
