The Exaltation of the Holy Cross (2014)

Sunday, 14 September 2014

Entrance The Glory of the Cross
Kyrie Mass of the Redeemer (mcb) - Penitential Act
Gloria Psallite
Psalm Ps 77 (Eugene Monaghan)
Gospel Acclamation Easter Alleluia (chant) & Adoramus te no. 2 in G minor (Antonio Lotti, 1667-1740)
Preparation of the Gifts Behold the wood of the cross (Dan Schutte)
Sanctus, Acclamation, Amen German Mass (Schubert, arr. Richard Proulx)
Agnus Dei Mass of the Redeemer (mcb)
Communion Forget not what God has done (Marty Haugen)
Postcommunion O Crux Ave (Rihards Dubra, b.1964)
Recessional At the name of Jesus

It’s unusual for us to have an elaborately choral Gospel acclamation, but the Lectionary text for today was virtually that of Lotti’s dramatic miniature. We preceded and followed it with the chant Easter Alleluia, so the whole thing, I trust, felt like a moment for the entire assembly.

Fr Michael’s powerful homily dwelt on the word behold, so Dan Schutte’s simple invitation to adore the Crucified was (fortuitously) well-chosen.
