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 PsalmsAlleluia (simple mode ii Alleluia from Parish Book of Chant)Offertory from the Simple English PropersOffertory motet: Josquin’s Ave ChristeGregorian Communio Dominus dabitPost Communion motet: Weelkes’ Let Thy Merciful Ears, O Lord Recessional: don’t know yet!
What will you be singing this Sunday?
