Entrance All who hunger, gather gladly
Kyrie Mass for John Carroll (Michael Joncas)
Gloria Mass for John Carroll
Psalm Ps 109 (Geoffrey Boulton Smith)
Sequence Lauda Sion (Chris Mueller)
Gospel Acclamation Mass for John Carroll
Preparation of the Gifts Godhead here in hiding
Sanctus, Acclamation, Amen Simple Sanctus (mcb)

Communion One bread we break (Stephen Dean)
Postcommunion Ave Verum Corpus (W.A. Mozart)
Recessional O praise our great and gracious Lord
 

We hadn't sung Godhead here in hiding for many years, and by the time we got to verse 3 or 4 I'd remembered why. I don't think Gerard Manley Hopkins’s poetry, engaging and intriguing as it is, works terribly well for public declamation in a hymn text.
