Advent 1 & 2--Year A
Advent 1--Year A
Processional: O Come, o Come Emmanuel (vs. 1-4)
Kyrie: Mass for the City (Proulx)
Gosp. Accl: Robert Twynham setting (WLP) w/choral verse
Offertory: Come My Way, My Truth, My Life (Paul French)
Euch. Accl.: Community Mass
Agnus Dei: Holy Cross Mass
Communion: Dominus Dabit (chant)
Recessional: The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns
One of my altos is a flautist and I had always admired the French piece (by WLP), so we gave it a whirl. Conditions were less than ideal since I had to play on it, but it went pretty well.
Advent 2--Year A
Processional: O Come (vs. 4-7)
Psalm: Oost-Zinner setting (from Chabanel site)
Offertory: Proper chant (hmm; can't think of it right now)
Communion: Jerusalem Surge (chant and Martini motet)
Recessional: On Jordan's Bank
I had hoped to stick with the Chabanel settings throughout Advent and give them a test-run, but I found the musical setting for the antiphon for this Sunday to be terribly difficult for a congregation. Luckily, Arlene had a mode 2 setting on there that worked perfectly.
We had our Christmas Concert about 36 hours before, so the "Jerusalem" was good to go. The motet is actually quite nice; a bit of "stile antico" with some more advanced harmonies.
