5th Sunday of Easter (Year C, 2013)

Sunday, 28 April 2013

Entrance A new commandment
Gloria Glory to God (Peter Jones)
Psalm Ps 144 (Martin Hall)
Gospel Acclamation Easter Gospel Acclamation (Brian Luckner)
Preparation of the Gifts Awake, thou wintry earth (J.S. Bach, 1685-1750)
Sanctus, Acclamation, Amen Spring Sanctus (mcb)
Agnus Dei from No Greater Love (Michael Joncas)
Communion I am the vine (John Bell)
Postcommunion Cantate Domino (Hans Leo Hassler, 1564-1612)
Recessional Christ triumphant

The opening hymn was prompted by today’s Gospel acclamation, and by the Gospel reading itself from St John. The entrance antiphon text

O sing a new song to the Lord,
for he has worked wonders;
in the sight of the nations
he has shown his deliverance, alleluia.
(Ps 97(98))

found an echo in our postcommunion motet, setting similar words from Ps 95(96). With I am the vine during the Communion procession, and Martin Hall’s responsorial psalm setting, we had (as Eric Morecambe might have put it) all the proper texts, but not necessarily in the proper order.
