Tony Barr has crafted these three practical seasonal responses that will be readily assimilated by your assembly.  Comosed in a mantra style, these ready-to-go settings include the comoser's performance suggestions and optional instrument parts.  "Praise to You" features a children's canon; "And God Saw That It Was Good" is the Easter Vigil Genesis response; and "Springs of Water" is a sprinkling rite with poetic images of nature.
Topic:  "Praise to You" - Entrance procession; Children's Liturgy of the Word dismissal; Liturgy of the Word with Children; Commissioning; Blessing of Easter Foods
"And God Saw That It Was Good"- Easter Vigil, Morning or Evening Praise; Stewardship; Creation; Environmental Concerns

And God Saw That It Was Good Listen
Springs of Water Listen
1). Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ
2). And God Saw That It Was Good

PERFORMANCE NOTES:
1). This response is in canon form (two to four voices), and may be sung by children as a round, suitable as a processional or a dismissal.  Choose any verse that is appropriate for the occasion.
2). Introduction/Interlude is to be played during the proclamation of the Genesis creation story (Gn 1:1--2-2).  Repeat as needed until text cue, then increase volume to lead cantor to intone the Response.  After the Response, begin again softly at Introduction/Interlude, repeating as needed throughout the reading.  Composer suggests varying the keyboard accompaniment by beginning with R.H. only and gradually adding the piece continues.
