Ash Wednesday (2016)

10 February 2016

Entrance O God, I seek you (Marty Haugen)
Psalm Ps 50 (Stephen Dean)
Gospel Acclamation Glory and Praise (mcb)
Imposition of Ashes Bless the Lord, my soul (Taizé)
Preparation of the Gifts Miserere Mei (G.B. Pergolesi, 1710-1736)
Sanctus, Acclamation B, Amen Mass XVII & English Missal chants
Agnus Dei Mass XVII
Communion Misericordes Sicut Pater (Paul Inwood)
Postcommunion (silence)
Recessional Our Father, we have wandered

For Lent this year, a return to Mass XVII. The Sanctus and Agnus Dei seem to draw a more enthusiastic response from our singing assembly than Mass XI (Missa Orbis Factor), which we've had in Lent for the last three years. The ‘major key’ feel of Mode 5 has something to do with it, I think, and the Orbis Factor Agnus Dei is a particularly tricky one.
