5 OT--C


OT 5—C (2/4/07)

Processional: Bow down before the Lord (DARWALL’S 148TH)

Psalm: Ps. 137 (138): 1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 7-8 In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord. W 573

Offertory: Perfice gressus meos (Franz Xaver Witt) (Marc and Peter)

Communion: Introibo ad altare Dei (chant—women)

Recessional: To Jesus Christ, Our Sovereign King W 282



The choir’s been singing well these first two Sundays. As we keep adding voices, you can feel a greater sense of comfort within the ensemble. Strength in numbers, not to mention the fact that imperfections are less conspicuous within a larger ensemble.

I came across the Witt piece over at cpdl.org when I was searching for some of the Propers. Extremely charming duet; my paid tenor soloist will be singing the alto line (he has a nice counter-tenor voice) and one of my finer basses sing the lower part. It worked out quite well, and it definitely saved me some rehearsal time with the choir to work on some CD stuff.

I am a little confused -- when I looked the Witt piece up on CPDL it said it was STAB but you refer to it as a duet.


(Save the liturgy, save the world...)

Take a look at the actual score . . . definitely not SATB. It's a typo . . .
