SOME NOTES ON THE MUSIC:
The antiphon to today's Introit is the translation in the Roman Missal (Sacramentary), while the antiphon for the Communion Proper is translated from the Gregorian Missal. Meanwhile, the second verse of the Communion hymn (Seek ye first) is a paraphrase of the Roman Missal's second option of the Proper.
The opening (Processional) hymn today is the same tune as last week's opening with a different text.
We also started teaching some Latin this past weekend that we will be using starting with 1 Advent (November 27). That is, the Memorial Acclamation "Mortem tuam annuntiamus, Domine, et resurrectionem tuam confitemur: Donec venias." Response was "ok", got better at each Mass (thus, the 10:30 response, less the choir, was far better than the response at the Saturday 4:30). We'll be reviewing this acclamation the next couple of Sundays, so we can hit it head-on for Advent. "Solemn Sunday" (normally the Last Sunday of the Month) will be, coincedentally, 1 Advent.
Our next full-blown anthem will be on Christ the King (November 20) - my own "Christus Vincit" setting, with Latin verses based on Psalm 93 (92). I will also eventually be adding in "The Worship of God in Nature" by Beethoven.
We're looking to have a choral concert, with some of the band from Tiverton High School. Tentative date is Wednesday, December 28, 2005, at 7:00 PM. More on this as it develops.
