The Oratory Easter Vigil: The Sevenfold Alleluia

Here is a point in the Easter liturgy that sometimes can be quite comic. The celebrant intones the Alleluia and the choir follows, and he reintones this again up in pitch twice over with us following. Then we have to sing the verse. This usually ends in a shambles, but this year it went relatively smoothly!

Not bad - but I think it sounds much better with an organ accompaniment. After all, there have been no alleluias in the liturgy for over 6 weeks, so it is a moment of real jubilation.
