Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord

29 March 2015

EntranceHosanna (Paul Inwood)
Psalm 21My God, my God (Christopher Walker)
Gospel AcclamationLenten (mtgf)
Preparation of GiftsOurs were the griefs (Stephen Dean)
Eucharistic AcclamationsMissa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Lamb of GodMissa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Communion AntiphonFather, if this cup (Stephen Dean)
CommunionChristus factus est (Anerio)
FinalMy song is love unknown

By request I changed the communion antiphon to see Stephen Dean's setting which we have not sung for a number of years with its grinding chromaticism. One of the challenges of Holy Week more than any other time of year is all the music you could sing and making choices and fitting in. The danger as I think was the case here, and later on Good Friday, was that there may be time but that does not mean there will be space - that is enough time so that each piece has its space and it does not seem like a continuous soundtrack of music.
