    Only one Paschal Vigil.


    How many Paschal Vigils do you usually have?
  • My schola is singing for Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday and Easter Sunday. We've only been singing since December, so this is quite the challenge! We're all excited for it, though. This is the music list:

    Palm Sunday
    Entrance Antiphon: Simple Choral Gradual (Rice)
    "All Glory, Laud and Honor" if needed (our parish does this procession where everyone gets their palms and it takes like, 20 years, so we'll probably run out of verses on the entrance antiphon)
    Resp. Psalm: OCP version, sung STB w/men singing verses
    Gospel Acc: OCP version, sung STB
    Offertory Antiphon: Simple Choral Gradual
    Sanctus: Mass XVIII
    Mem. Acc.: ICEL chant
    Agnus Dei: Mass XVIII
    Communion Antiphon: SCG
    Closing Hymn: O Sacred Head Surrounded (sung w/o organ accompaniment--I wanted to end on a more solemn note)

    Holy Thursday
    Entrance Hymn: O Cross of Christ (I'm sort of debating on just doing the antiphon for the processional instead of a hymn--undecided on that one)
    Entrance Antiphon: SCG
    Gloria: Mass of the Resurrection (DeBruyn)
    Resp. Psalm: Right now planning on doing OCP, but I might just do a simple chant version instead. Their SATB version sort of makes my eyes cross...
    Gospel Acc.: OCP, sung STB
    Foot Washing: One of the antiphons from Simple Choral Gradual (yeah, I know, I'd like to do all 6, but we're only going to have one practice before this Mass...)
    Lead Me, Lord (Wesley) during the foot washing
    Offertory Antiphon: Ubi Caritas chant
    Sanctus: Mass XVIII
    Mem. Acc.: ICEL chant
    Agnus Dei: Mass XVIII
    Communion Antiphon: SCG
    Communion piece: Panis Angelicus (Lambillotte)
    Eucharistic Procession: Pange Lingua chant

    Easter Sunday
    Prelude: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring instrumental on classical guitar and recorder
    Entrance Hymn: Come, You Faithful, Raise the Strain
    Entrance Antiphon: SCG
    Gloria: Mass of the Resurrection
    Resp. Psalm: OCP
    Easter Sequence: Christ the Lord is Risen Today (hymn)
    Gospel Acc: OCP
    Rite of Sprinking: Vidi Aquam from Simple Choral Gradual
    Offertory Antiphon: SCG
    Offertory hymn: Jesus is Risen
    Sanctus: Mass XVIII
    Mem. Acc.: ICEL Chant
    Agnus Dei: Mass XVIII
    Communion Antiphon: SCG
    Communion piece: I want to do Ave Verum by Perosi, but I don't know if we'll have enough time to learn it between now and then.
    Recessional Hymn: Jesus Christ is Ris'n Today
    Postlude: Trumpet Tune by William Boyce

    Any feedback anyone has on this lineup would be greatly appreciated! I'm sure it's not as great as some of the music the rest of you all will be doing, but I figure that we have to start somewhere. Learning all of those antiphons just makes me want to pass out sometimes! I'm very thankful that my schola picks it all up so quickly, but I just wish we would be able to sing them for several weeks after putting all that work into it.

    musiclover88 - The only thing that caught my eye is that I'm not sure it is permissible to substitute a hymn for the actual sequence text.

    Holy Week: what's going on at your place?
    TOO DARN MUCH
  • Our Lady of Pompeii RC Church, Lancaster, NY (about 13 miles east of Buffalo, NY)

    For our Easter Triduum, my Adult Choir collaborates with the Contemporary Ensemble which I oversee, but do not direct. I am completely in charge of Holy Week, although I let the contemporary leader play/direct about 1/4 of the music.

    Holy Thursday:
    Prelude: Variations on Ubi Caritas - Denis Bedard
    Gathering: Lift High the Cross
    Gloria - Heritage Mass (Alstott)
    Psalm and Gospel Acc. - Respond and Acclaim
    Washing of Feet - Jesu, Jesu
    Prep. of Gifts - I Give to You a New Commandment (Peter Nardone - choral anthem, from SJMP)
    Mass acclamations - Heritage Mass througout
    Communion - Take and Eat
    Transfer - Pange Linguia (chant)

    Good Friday has nothing spectacular on the agenda this year due to my dwindling choral groups. We will be pairing the traditional O Sacred Head, with a contemporary setting by David Hurd. All unison singing. Other than that we will use some typical Taize stuff, Were You There, etc.

    Easter Vigil -

    Again nothing too spectacular, all psalms again from Respond and Acclaim. The mass setting will be the Contemporary Group's Mass of Light revised, although we will use organ on the Gloria. Only one in our RCIA, and the individual will just be getting confirmed, so no litany of the saints. After Communion we will sing a very simple, 2 part anthem from SJMP: Day of Resurrection by Richard Shepherd. Hymn of Thanksgiving will be Jesus Christ is Risen Today. This year I was hoping to use a new postlude, but my degree recital is quickly approaching on May 3, and I don't have the time to learn something new. So it's looking Widor Toccata will get another run through this year.

  • musiclover88 - The only thing that caught my eye is that I'm not sure it is permissible to substitute a hymn for the actual sequence text.


    It's the same text, just set to a hymn tune instead of the chant. I didn't mean that we're substituting the actual text.

    I noticed very few will be singing Vexilla regis, the vespers hymn for Holy Week. It is considered one of the greatest hymns in all of Christendom. Before the so-called reforms of Holy Week in 1955, it was specified to be sung during the procession of the Blessed Sacrament from the altar of repose to the main altar on Good Friday. We plan to sing the Gregorian version at this time, as well as during communion on Palm Sunday.

    Postlude

    We are one parish in a six parish cluster, served by a pastor and a sacramental priest. In my (north) area the Holy Thursday Mass, Good Friday service, and Easter Sunday Mass are rotated amongst our 3 parishes. South parishes conduct additional Masses/services for their 3 parishes...they enjoy larger congregations. An Easter Vigil is conducted in the north and in the south, but for the first time all catechumens will enter the Church during this year's Vigil in a south parish. I believe the handwriting is on the wall: Only one Vigil (south) in the years to come, as we will likely lose our sacramental priest this July. A parish (or two) in the north may even close, six parishes would be too much for one priest to shepherd adequately. This all traces back to not producing priestly vocations from this neck of the woods for a very.long.time. But it's not for lack of trying. Vocations will come in God's time. May all enjoy a blessed Easter season!

    I have to ask: What is a "sacramental priest"? Is the such a thing as a "non-sacramental priest"? Can he only ministrate the sacraments but not preach?
  • The programs are attached along with an easy version of the reproaches using a Chabanl psalm tone for the verses - that sort of bends the mode into a transposed III. At the vigil we will sing an offertory hymn and a closing hymn , the communion will be the Latin proper and the 3 responsorial psalms will be recited. On Holy Thursday the choir will sing Nos Autem as a verse to the SEP refrain "We have no Glory" as the offertory.

  • See attached program booklet for the Triduum thru Easter Sunday. While Chrism Mass is my favorite of holy week (and the year), my favorite service during the Triduum is night prayer on Thursday. I'm not sure how many parishes do a formal service to end the Holy Thursday festivities, but I highly recommend it if you don't.
