4th Sunday of Advent

23 December 2012

EntranceLonging, trusting (mtgf)
Penitential RiteKyrie - Orbis factor
Psalm 79God of hosts (mtgf)
Gospel AcclamationSalisbury (Christopher Walker)
Preparation of GiftsO child of promise (Andrew Maries)
Eucharistic AcclamationsCreation (Marty Haugen)
Lamb of GodAdvent Lamb of God (mtgf)
Communion AntiphonBehold a virgin shall conceive (mtgf)
CommunionOn the lips of an angel (Bach/Gounod/Soper)
FinalO come, O come Emmanuel

Some choir members could not be with us and so this meant a couple of changes. Whether the congregation thought they were getting Monteverdi when they were getting the Bach/Gounod/Soper mash-up I am not sure.

The reference in the Collect to Christ's Passion and Cross made a connection with Andrew Maries setting of James Quinn's O child of promise - the promise is salvation and it is won through his Passion, Death and Resurrection - this is what we invoke.
