In choosing the processional, Psalm, and offertory, I had the theme of "Shepherd" in mind. In the processional, I also added on the need to "come ye before him and rejoice".
I really wanted to pull off the Veni Creator Spiritus, but since I just got word of this Mass tonight, and I have to inform the choir tomorrow, and Mass in two days from now, there's no way the choir will pull this off on short notice. I highly doubt most of them know it. At least there will be a good three rehearsals before Pentecost (5/15) and Confirmation (5/18), so at least it will be ready then.
I went with the suggestion list from the OCP site in choosing the Communion anthem. They listed "Panis Angelicus" among the Communion listings. Though the numbers provided all reference to the Lambillotte tune, which is nice. But I'll admit - I'm partial to the Cesar Franck setting, and my choir knows it, so Franck it is.
The recessional is self explanatory, I think. :-)
The Gloria will be omitted. I gave the pastor the option of Latin or English for the Sanctus and Agnus. Being for Pope Benedict, and knowing his views on liturgy, I fully agree with Father's preference for the Latin.
