SOME NOTES ON TODAY'S MUSIC:
The Introit verse to this Mass once again is the beginning of Psalm 19. This results in once again having the choir repeat Beethoven's The Worship of God in Nature.
One of the better additions to the OCP repertoire is the hymn Church of God, elect and glorious. I found this to be a viable alternative to the conceited refrain of We are the light of the world (that they may see the good that we do...). The text is cleverly set to a familiar hymntune, HYFRYDOL (most familiar with Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!).
