Entrance O God, I seek you (Marty Haugen)
Psalm Ps 50 (Stephen Dean)
Gospel Acclamation Glory and Praise (mcb)
Imposition of Ashes Lord, Cleanse my heart (Psallite)
Sanctus, Acclamation C, Amen Missa Orbis Factor & Missal tones
Agnus Dei Missa Orbis Factor
Communion Miserere Mei (Antonio Lotti, c.1667-1740)
Recessional Our Father, we have wandered

A Latin chant setting as usual for Lent. This year we're going back to Mass XI (Missa Orbis Factor), which we last sang four years ago. In the past, we've done the Kyrie and Sanctus from Mass XI, coupled with the Agnus from Mass XVIII, but the fact that we've sung the latter in English during Advent for the last two years seemed a good excuse to add the Agnus from Mass XI to our repertoire this time round. It's beautiful, but fairly challenging for a singing assembly, with little of the repetition that makes other chant settings a bit easier to assimilate. I'm hoping our assembly will have mastered it by the time we get to Holy Thursday.
