There are certain, presiders, that like to keep things moving.  What’s funny about this particular improvisation, during the communion procession, is that there was a Eucharistic minister serving the wine that took longer than the rest of the ministers.  From my vantage point, I didn’t notice this.  That caused me to tack on an extra coda ending as the priest was waiting for things to move on.  I have often thought that this sort of improvisation is all about how to extend an ending.  It is an art to make an ending not sound like an ending.
