I got a phone call from the brother of a deceased woman whose funeral I'm playing this Saturday 2/17/07 (the brother is our CCD coordinator for grades 6-10). Now, this CCD coordinator, in my 25.7 years experience, is an exception to the "typical CCD boss" rule. Music selections overall for Confirmation Masses over the last couple of years have been the best I've experienced. His sister's funeral this Saturday is no exception to his good taste in liturgy and music (although it's a big exception compared to your typical funeral request line).
UPDATE: Final listing as of 2/16/07
Entrance: For all the saints (SINE NOMINE)
Psalm: My Shepherd is the Lord (Gelineau)
Offertory: Pie Jesu (Faure)
Sanctus/Agnus Dei: People's
Communion: Keep in Mind (Deiss)
Final Commendation: Come to her aid, O saints of God (Smolarski/OLD 100TH)
Recessional: In Paradisum (Mode VII)
No Beagle's Things. No Be Very Afraid. No Here I Is, Lard. No Gentle Woman. No greatest hits. Just true Catholic music. Makes me damn proud to be on the Holy Ghost parish staff. Kudos Peter, and my condolensces.
