    We're doing one of my long time favorites, K72/74f with a small string band. To keep it in our repertory I'm thinking of re-using it for Advent II.

    donr- If you have the Heritage Missal of OCP you will be shocked that Soul of My Savior is not there! I think "O God You Search Me and You Know Me" is one of the best modern hymns I have heard. Good marriage of words and tune, scriptural, etc. all the good things for an OF Mass.

    I'm playing hooky to get to Chicago early and visit St. John Cantius, so repertoire is easier than usual. But my guys are doing Ut queant laxis for Offertory motet, and the pro/re-cessional is On Jordan's Banks, the only remotely suitable hymn in the Campion missal which we use. (EF)
