For some reason, my Ne Timeas post from last year has been getting small but steady traffic over the past few weeks. Concord Pastor has a number of posts up on the Immaculate Conception fro the past few days: worthy reading all.
I see that one year later, I still don’t have a musical setting of Ne Timeas forthcoming. I’m surprised there is nothing from Taize, as this line from Scripture would be a great chant:
Instead, I’ve been working on this line from Isaiah 40:
Consolamini, consolamini, popule meus, dicit Deus vester.
But it’s not coming to completion very well. “Consolamini” is the vital word and it flows so easily to music. I suppose I could have a listen to any number of the settings, but I don’t want to pollute my head and get into George Harrison trouble down the road.
