    We did the ordinary and usual music for a Sunday in Advent at our 8:00 a.m. mass.

    Entrance: On Jordan's Bank
    Psalm: from the WLP collection - Psalm 126
    Offertory: Dixit Maria
    Communion: Creator of the Stars of Night
    Incidental organ music: "Savior of the Nations Come" arranged by Wayne L. Wold
    Recessional: People, Look East

    Ordinary: ICEL Chant Mass

    I don't do postludes during Advent.

    While preparing for the next mass, the pastor came to the loft and said snowfall had increased and the roads were getting bad so we should get out of there before it got worse. So we slipped and slid through the parking lot, I fell while cleaning snow from the car windows, then I slowly made it home. Fortunately, traffic was light because stopping distances were long. A memorable 2nd Sunday of Advent.


  • Prelude: an adagio by Guilmant
    Introit: My spirit longs for Thee - Wm. Bradley Roberts
    Entrance: Prepare the way O Zion (TH82 #65)
    Kyrie (a simple setting using Cranham)
    Psalm 126 and Advent Gospel Acclamation - Kate Keefe
    Offertory: Prepare The Way of The Lord - Lloyd Larson
    Sanctus - Proulx (TH82#S125)
    Communion Hymn: The King shall come (TH82#73)
    Post Communion Hymn: There's a voice in the wilderness (TH82#75)
    No postlude
    Nasty weather and as many in pews as in choir. Our priest intentionally waltzed to the entrance hymn. I just rolled my eyes. Not sure some folks liked it. Nothing I can do about it.
  • CesarFranck,

    Someone once commented (I think it was Fr. Rutler?) that if one must tell the celebrant that he may not wear a cheese block on his head.... one has already lost the argument!
  • Missa XVII
    Credo I

    Quis Sicut Te
    Adoro Te, Devote
    Hark, a Herald Voice is Calling

    Very typical for a Sunday here at St. Robert Bellarmine. I am not the music director, although I lead the choir when needed.
  • Since I had a concert this afternoon, I opted to stop in at the local Orthodox church where one of my fellow concert tenors is cantor. Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, in four-part harmony. I was running on two hours of sleep at that point but it was still delightful.
  • The Cathedral Parish, Bridgeport, CT

    Hymn at the Procession: On Jordan's Bank (WINCHESTER NEW)
    Gregorian proper chants (Introit, Offertory, Communion)
    Mass setting - Missa super "Dixit Maria" - Hans Leo Hassler
    Credo III
    resp. psalm - Sam Schmitt
    motet at the offertory: Ave gratia plena - Cornelius Verdonck
    motet at communion: Ave Maris Stella - Hassler
    at the recessional" Alma Redemptoris Mater (simple tone)
    (no solo organ music during Advent)
  • No music at Mass yesterday for me. I had a 3pm concert with an 11:45 call (since the TBs didn't have time to run their repertoire at the dress rehearsal on Friday). I served at a Low Mass (just me serving and the priest who sped through Mass) at St. Vincent de Paul on Roncesvalles. Sometimes there's a simple majesty to Low Mass which can be lost in all the excitement at High Mass.
  • Weber propers for Introit and Communion

    Entrance Hymn: "On Jordan's Bank"
    Kyrie: XVI
    Psalm 126: Proulx
    Alleluia: VI
    Offertory Anthem at choir Mass: "Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus" (arr. Hobby)
    Offertory Hymn at other Masses: "Creator of the Stars of Night"
    Communion "Hymn": "Wait for the Lord" (Taizé)
    Recessional Hymn: "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel," stanzas 3-4 (I know, I know...save that for the last week of Advent, O Antiphons, etc....I nearly had a riot on my hands in previous years for doing that, and I've determined my young life is currently more valuable than that hill I'd otherwise die on)
