Lent and Easter Suggestions

Here is a list of music which we've suggested for Lent, Holy Week and Easter. It's not comprehensive, but we are adding to it, so keep coming back to see what's here. 

Ash Wednesday

Chris Walker's Psalm 50, Give me a new heart from OCP (downloadable) 



A Lenten summary hymn (As we start our Lenten journey) which sums up many of the themes of Lent. In Word and pdf. The tune

A Lenten Gos 


Palm Sunday

An alternative to All Glory, Laud and Honour (Ride on: Jerusalem awaits). To the tune of "All Creatures of Our God and King". In Word and pdf

Chris Walker's rich, but maybe long and medium-difficulty, version of the psalm.

Maundy Thursday 

For the Reception of the Oils concsecrated at the Chrism Mass, we tend to alternate David Ogden's Hymn of Chrism (contact whitelightpublishing.co.uk) and Richard Jeffrey-Gray's version (contact Richard at This email address is being protected from spambots.
