    What are you doing for this solemnity?

    Home parish is doing:

    Processional: Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise (LLANFAIR)
    Gloria: C. T. Andrews
    Psalm: from Alstott's Respond & Acclaim
    Alleluia: from Alstott's Respond & Acclaim
    Offertory: Crown Him with Many Crowns (DIADEMATA)
    Parts: from Schutte's Mass of My Little Christ the Savior
    Communion: One Love Released
    Recessional: Go Make of All Disciples (ELLACOMBE)


    Overall, not a bad lineup.

  • Catholic Z09,

    I don't think I know "One Love Released". What is it?

    Did you spell Thurnday that way on purpose?

    My home parish will end up having a Low Mass for Ascension because of last-minute changes to the schedule and a rash of absences from regular rehearsals. I had hoped to sing the Gregorian Propers, Couillart's Viri Galilaei at the Offertory, and Isaac's Psallite Domino in place of the Communion antiphon chant.

    I’m really hoping our MD remembers that I told him Alleluia, Sing to Jesus is an Ascension hymn. Otherwise OCP’s “Ascension” hymn section is pretty dire and sad.

    Or, as I put it today in the Northeast USA, Ascension Thursday Sunday Thursday.
  • Ascension Thursday at noon at Walsingham -

    We had Palmer-Burgess propers and Willan, with Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silence at the communion today - Regina Caeli (English) after mass.

    There will be a pontifical high mass at six o'clock this evening.
