Here is a utilitarian set, perfectly designed to be the “bookends” for your Palm Sunday services. Using the hymn tune “Plainfield” as a melodic basis, the call and response style of this introit is easily sung while entering the sanctuary. The use of children in response and optional handbells are a splendid touch. The final blessing is a harbinger for Holy Week's time of reflection and helps make the transition from hosannas to kyries.
