Funeral of Chris McArdle

Wednesday, 15 May 2013

 
Entrance Be thou my vision
Psalm Because the Lord is my shepherd (Walker)
Gospel Acclamation Easter Alleluia (plainchant)
Preparation of the Gifts If ye love me (Thomas Tallis, c.1505-1585)
Sanctus, Acclamation B, Amen Spring Sanctus (mcb)
Communion Ave Verum Corpus (William Byrd, 1540-1623)
Postcommunion Soul of my saviour
Commendation Song of farewell (Ernest Sands)
Recessional Thine be the Glory
 

The choir turned out in good number to say our goodbye to Chris. I think he’d have liked what we sang, not least a piece by his favourite composer William Byrd. The duet from The Pearl Fishers, played by Anthony just before the Mass began, was for Chris too.
