Entrance Of the glorious body telling
Kyrie Peter Jones
Gloria Mass of the Redeemer (mcb)
Psalm Ps 115 (Stephen Dean/Psallite)
Gospel Acclamation (i) Sequence: Lo! The angel’s food is given (ii) St Agatha Alleluia (mcb)
Preparation of the Gifts Tantum Ergo (Gabriel Fauré, 1845-1924)
Sanctus, Acclamation A, Amen Mass of Creation (Marty Haugen)
Agnus Dei Peter Jones
Communion Take and Eat (Michael Joncas)
Recessional Soul of my Saviour

We sang the sequence in English to the traditional plainchant melody, taking it from the New English Hymnal, starting at part 2, as permitted because the unabridged form is so long. The little-known setting of Tantum Ergo by Fauré has a charming melody, sung first by a soloist and then taken up in the second verse by the full choir. The solo was beautifully executed by choral scholar Hana Ilčić.
