Lineup for the First Sunday in Advent

As we are waiting on the miraculous, the general sense is that mysterious music should be happening in our parishes; music that reflects the many moods of anticipation. Alas, Advent always sneaks up on me in terms of planning. That's the nature of the Ordinary Form. So, for the First of Advent, we're singing:

Gregorian Introit Ad te levavi
Responsorial Psalm - Parish Book of Psalms
Alleluia (simple mode ii Alleluia from Parish Book of Chant)
Offertory from the Simple English Propers
Offertory motet: Josquin's Ave Christe
Gregorian Communio Dominus dabit
Post Communion motet: Weelkes' Let Thy Merciful Ears, O Lord
Recessional: don't know yet!

What will you be singing this Sunday?
