    Attende Domine (alternate en. & es. verses)
    Responsorial Psalm Miserere mei Deus, quoniam peccavi. (even vv es., odd en.)

    Off. Exaltabo te (solo)

    A nearly full church, and our first year without any organ. I'm quite proud of the choir, who because of the early hour had 25' to prepare everything!
