The Anglicans have a nice collection of the most poetic passages in the New Testament, covering what Catholics will find in their breviaries, and a bit more.
In the post below on a funeral entrance song, I was thinking the canticles from Revelation 4-5, 11 (missing from the Anglican list), 15, and 19 were the most appropriate Biblical material for a scriptural item covering both eternal life and petition for the dead. (See nos. 69, 70-72 on the link.)
But I also like the crafting of two excerpts (nos. 57 & 58) from Romans (4.24, 25; 5.1-5, 8, 9, 11) and (8.2, 14, 15b-19) as canticles. Outside the Anglican tradition, are any readers familiar with these new renderings?
