Ash Wednesday (2012)

Entrance Lord Jesus, think on me
Psalm Ps 50 (Stephen Dean)
Gospel Acclamation Lenten Gospel Acclamation (mcb)
Imposition of Ashes Lord, Cleanse my heart (Psallite)
Sanctus, Acclamation C, Amen Mass XVII & Missal tones
Agnus Dei Mass XVII
Communion Miserere Mei (Orlande de Lassus, 1532-1594)
Recessional Our Father, we have wandered
 

Small changes, as usual, to our musical bill of fare; both the Psallite setting of Ps 50(51) and the one by Stephen Dean, for instance, are strong and simple settings that easily bear annual repetition. Our third setting of the opening verse of this psalm was by Lassus.

My setting of the Gospel Acclamation offers a hybrid refrain adapted from three of the suggested texts:

Glory and praise to you, Lord Jesus,
You are the Word of God.
