NOTES ON THE MUSIC:
The second option in the Roman Missal for the Communion chant is from the Beatitudes, thus the selection of my own Remember, Lord, your servants. The antiphon is Remember, Lord, thy servants, when thou dost take thy throne. The five verses are based on the Beatitudes, written in a one-beat-per-bar style similar to that of the Psalms of Joseph Gelineau.
The Responsorial Psalm as set by Alexander Peloquin is just absolutely gorgeous in four parts. This is our first time actually singing it in parts. It's in his collection Songs of Israel, Volume 2, and in the CD Radiating Christ: The Music of C. Alexander Peloquin. The CD itself is a treat. It's the most recent collection of Dr. Peloquin's music. I'll blog more on that shortly.
The recessional, Holy God, we praise thy name, was Gregorian Missal-induced - at least by the Offertory, which translates, It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing in honor of your name, O Most High.
+ In Christ,
