Well, not a woman composer for this evening, but I find this so lovely and thinks it deserves to be heard. Plus, truth be told, finding more women composers is getting challenging, and I found next to nothing for Easter.

‘During this season of Easter, we are pleased to share with you our first social-distancing performance of the well-loved hymn, ‘This Joyful Eastertide’, arranged by Charles Wood.’ – Richard Mason, Director of Music

    We used to sing this in church. I took the top line. Now it feels like Easter. Thank-you Patty. This means more to me than I can possibly convey.

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  3. One of my favorite Easter hymns!
