I sing in my Episcopal Church choir, and I have been thinking about the hymns that we use during Lent.  In past years, we have focused more on the somber music from the "Lent" section of the 1982 hymnal.  This year, however, we are doing something different - soloists have been singing a selection from Handel's Messiah each week, and we have been practicing the Hallelujah Chorus to sing as an ensemble on Easter Sunday.  Very exciting, and an opportunity for us to stretch our musical wings! 


I am curious and I have a question for those who observe Lent and attend church services - how do you feel about the music during this season?  Do you have a favorite hymn or piece?
