    Here is ours. I think the worship aide is better than the music, which was rather pedestrian this Sunday.

    This is ours. First time Candlemas has fallen on a Sunday since I’ve been here. It was decided not to print a 1-off worship aid for the high Mass this week, but to wedge everything on the front of the bulletin next to the masthead, where stuff would have to be anyway for the other 3 Masses.

    This usually works fine when it’s the Nth Sunday OT and nothing really special going on. This week it was tight and the secretary did battle royal with Publisher, and it worked, albeit not with the usual parallel Latin/English we usually can do for chant/polyphony.

    Glad I'm not the only one without a pdf: our aid is a wooden hymn board and hangs next to the sanctuary by a nail. After a little discussion with our pastor, it turned out the assistant priest would preside at the choir Mass, so we went back to the 3 hymn sandwich instead of the open-face plan, the candle blessing (GIA's "A light of revelation to the nations", mode viii) happening at the altar instead of the entrance. Offertory was Gibbons' Nunc from the Short Service.

    Thanksgiving after Mass: Anima Christi

    This Mass is offered on the first Sunday of the month only, and is often Low Mass; this was the first Missa Cantata since May 2019 for various reasons, mainly having to do with priest availability. My schola was formed in 2008 to provide the chant for this Mass and has since branched out to assisting with some Sundays and holy days at one or the other of two parishes in the diocese with Sunday EF Masses. They also assist when I teach chant workshops. We are all volunteers.

    The Mass is sandwiched into the cathedral's regular schedule at 4:30 pm, between a Spanish-language NO and the campus ministry NO, so we were unable to have either blessings and procession beforehand or candle and throat blessings afterwards, and we used the slightly-time-saving Chants Abreges in the middle. But we still ended up singing nine verses of the Communio after the two other Communion pieces!

    This particular Missa Cantata was the first one that our schola sang alone (not with the small parish schola at my home parish) for four of our members, a mom and her two teenage sons plus one other teen. There were a couple of glitches but I was very happy with it overall and the congregation was very appreciative.

    I have attached the bulletin that I prepared for the Mass.

  • We just do a seasonal worship aid which contains the ordinaries for the liturgical season and a section in the back with the printed introit hymn and words for the offertory and communion chants for each Sunday. Here's what we did last Sunday:

    Our Lady of Fatima, Seattle, WA
    Introit: C. Tietze's Hymn Introit
    Kyrie: ICEL
    Other ordinaries: Norah Duncan's Mass of the Holy Name of Jesus
    Psalm: Gelineau
    Offertory: Adam Bartlett's Simple English Proper, The Presentation by Rachel Aarons (St. James Music Press), In His Temple Now Behold Him (ST THOMAS)
    Communion: Andrew Motyka's Laudate Communion Antiphon, Te Deum by Marty Haugen
    Closing: Crown Him With Many Crowns

    This is a pretty representative mix of what we're doing around here these days. And in case this looks appealing and you'd like to live in a place that just set a record for rainfall in January, we're also looking for an organist!
