Holy Hour for the Beatification of Pope John Paul II

ExpositionO Salutaris Hostia (tune: Melcombe)
Evening Prayer: HymnAt the Lamb’s high feast
PsalmsPs 109, Ps 113, Canticle from Revelation 19 (all from Parish Sunday Vespers)
MagnificatMy soul is filled with joy
BenedictionTantum Ergo (chant)
RepositionAdoremus in aeternum (chant)
Marian HymnHoly light on earth’s horizon

Bishop Brain led a service of Exposition, Evening Prayer and Benediction, interspersed with elements of the Divine Mercy Devotion (the chaplet and litany). We kept the music simple, with familiar hymns and Latin chant items, and a Magnificat sung to the melody Wild Mountain Thyme. A cantor led the psalms for Evening Prayer, singing alternatim with the congregation (fortified by a few members of the choir). For a small gathering, we made a polished sound, I thought.
