Schola Cantorum of St. Peter's-in-the-Loop Church, Chicago, J. Michael Thompson, Director
The Roman Lectionary reform of 1969 called for a restoration of the "Great Fifty Days" of celebration between Easter and Pentecost.

Music for Easter II serves as a resource for music liturgists in search of chant, hymns, and anthems for the season. If offers a time-honored treasury of old selections as well as new creations of variety and richness. The plainchant and the Renaissance motets recorded here express the rich patrimony of the Western Church. The newer music selections reflect the strivings of the Church for good contemporary music to enhance today's celebration.
