Easter music 


Here is how some of our parishioners are using their time creatively while in isolation. Thank you to Georgina and Duy (members of the ICC 9.30 am choir) for this beautiful rendition of 'Hallelujah' and accompanying inspiring visuals.

'Now We Remain' 

'Now We Remain' written by Davis Haas - a Pentecost hymn created "so people could raise their voices and sing the Paschal Mystery", in a special performance by ICC musicians Jane Matheson, Patrick Shannon and Fiona Dyball. More information about David Haas and this hymn: "Now we remain with Jesus the Christ" and "Want to compose new music for Mass".

Followed by 'Shelter Me' composed by Fr Michael Joncas and performed by Jane, Pat and Fiona. Based on Psalm 23 it lights a way to find God's presence even in these fraught times. See Composer's Note and Sheet Music (Copyright 2020. The Jan Michael Joncas Trust. All rights reserved)
