33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

15 November 2015

Entrance Let all mortal flesh
Penitential Rite St Gabriel (mtgf)
Gloria Angels and Saints (Steven Janco)
Psalm 15 Preserve me, God (mtgf)
Gospel Acclamation Salisbury Alleluia (Christopher Walker)
Preparation of Gifts Long is our winter (German, 14th c.)
Eucharistic Acclamations Creation (Marty Haugen)
Lamb of God Angels and Saints (Steven Janco)
Communion Antiphon To be near God (mtgf)
Communion Love divine (Purcell)
Final Lo, he comes on clouds

One of my favourite bits of 'trivia' is that Wesley wrote the words of Love divine' to the tune of Purcell's Fairest Isle. We sang it as a choir piece and not only do the words fit well I think there is a also an element of 'parody' (in the purest sense) of Dryden's original words.

I think this is the first time we have sung Lo, he comes as a hymn. Following last year it serves as a preparation for our Advent 'Helmsley Alleluia'.
