Lenten Music

New music telling the ancient story can bring that story alive in our own time. This week’s liturgy offers three new congregational hymns that are part of the Lenten/Holy Week story. And for the choir, consider John Bell’s “Why did you ignore me?” with words based on the Good Friday reproaches. Stretching a little farther, try U2’s “MLK,” with the haunting words: Sleep, sleep tonight. And may your dreams be realized.
