An accessible choral Ascension offertory

Not fabulous, but definitely worth a look or three:

The off-the-top-of-my-head list of anthems for Easter season at my parish is starting to coalesce into some combination of:
Billings “Easter Anthem”
Inwood “Easter Anthem”
Thompson “Hosanna to the Living Lord”
Lewandowski Psalm 23 (translated by myself)
Tallis “If Ye Love Me” (I think this is the year the Lectionary quotes that passage?)
Schaller “Ascendit Deus” (Ascension)
Aichinger “Confirma hoc, Deus” (Pentecost)

I would do a Gregorian communion or two, but they look quite a bit harder in Eastertide than in Lent. Gotta pick my battles.
