As I had alluded to in my previous post, I had to spend so much time on our pieces for the Xmas concert, that Advent stuff was quite neglected. That shall be remedied next year . . .

So a few items of interest: I started introducing "Mass for the City" during Advent (just the Kyrie and Sanctus for now; the rest to come in January), introduced the Isele "Lamb of God" (a bit syrupy, yes, but quite lovely and the ascending motive fits well with the Proulx mass), and gave some of the Weber chants a run (we performed w/organ accompaniment for some variety--quite nice).

My only lament is that it looks like I'll be cheating the wonderful repertoire of metrical Advent hymns since I only programmed one for each of the first two weeks. I'll try to make up for lost time the next two weeks since my choir is gone for break : (
