Easter Decorations and an Easter Carol

Here are some photos of the church on Easter Sunday. Sorry I couldn't take any of the service itself - I was too busy leading it! We had a very good turnout though, and a lovely atmosphere of rejoicing. Sermons from Holy Week and Easter are here. Many thanks to all who have helped make Holy Week and Easter so special this year at Seal

The new Paschal Candle. Many thanks for decorating the candle stand so beautifully, Chris.

The board of remembrance. We prayed for those we mourned at Easter.

Some of our resurrection butterflies decorated the board and flew up from it across the Lady Chapel screen.

The empty tomb, glowing with glory in the Lady Chapel.

Easter egg decorations.

There are giant bunnies in the windows!

Here's the Easter Carol the choir sang on Easter Sunday morning at Seal, and some photos from Holy Week and Easter. The words are by Bishop Philip Brooks (writer of "O little town of Bethlehem) and the music is by my husband (and our choirmaster) Philip Le Bas. He was rather chuffed to discover another video of it on YouTube, sung by a choir at a church in Bangalore! They had presumably found it on his page on cpdl Their version with accompaniment on assorted Indian instruments, by the sound of things, is here.
