The Epiphany (2012)

Sunday, 8 January 2012

Entrance O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness
Gloria Gloria de Noël (Thomas Niel)
Psalm Ps 71 (Eugene Monaghan/Stephen Dean)
Gospel Acclamation St Agatha Alleluia (mcb)
Preparation of the Gifts Bethlehem! of noblest cities
Sanctus, Acclamation, Amen Missa Ubi Caritas (Bob Hurd)
Agnus Dei Missa Ubi Caritas
Communion Laudate Omnes Gentes (Taizé) & Reges Tharsis (chant)
Postcommunion Videntes stellam (Francis Poulenc, 1899-1963)
Recessional The first nowell

Poulenc’s Four Motets for Christmas Time are among my all-time favourite pieces of music. So I’m glad we could muster the forces for the quirkily serene Videntes Stellam. At least one member of the congregation reported a tingling spine.
