Cantate Sunday
Incipit of the Gregorian chant introit for the fourth Sunday after Easter, from which it gets the name Cantate Sunday.[1]

Cantate Sunday is the fifth Sunday in Eastertide, being the fourth Sunday after Easter Sunday in the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar and the Lutheran liturgical calendar.[2][3]

It is known by the Eastern Orthodox as the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman.[4]

Because it's often used for an annual sermon about hymns and liturgical music, it's sometimes nicknamed "Sing-song Sunday."
