Sunday XXV at Holy Ghost

As customary on the last Sunday of each month at Holy Ghost, we use the Latin (Jubilate Deo) Ordinary setting. We are beginning to teach Gloria VIII. This will finish off the manilla cards in our pews. Like the case of any possibility of a "papal crackdown" on music, we're doing this in little bits. In my first year (2004), the congregation learned the Sanctus and Agnus Dei. In my second year (2005), they learned the Memorial Acclamation "Mortem tuam annuntiamus, Domine." Now beginning my third year at Holy Ghost, we're working on the Gloria. We will begin use of it at Christmas at ALL Masses.
On the last Sunday of the month during the choral season, we'll be adding on a sung Introit to a Psalm Tone, in Latin. Also, during Communion, as the choir receives the Most Blessed Sacrament, I will chant the Communion antiphon to the melody in the Gregorian Missal.

Without further ado, here is this weekend's list:

(10:30 only) Salus populi ego sum, dicit Dominus (Psalm Tone 8G)
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty (Lobe den Herren/25)
Mass of the Bells (Peloquin) (Gloria)
The Lord upholds my life (Alstott)
Alleluia (Mode VI) / Verse sung to Psalm Tone 6F
O God, beyond all praising (Thaxted/547)
Jubilate Deo (chant) (Sanctus, Memorial, Amen, Agnus)
Lord's Prayer in English (chant/Snow)
(10:30 only) Tu mandasti mandata tua (Mode V/Gregorian Missal)
(10:30 only) Cast thy burden upon the Lord (Mendelssohn)
(except 10:30) Keep in mind (Deiss/657)
Praise the Lord, ye heav'ns, adore him (Hymn to Joy/553)
