MUSIC FOR HOLY MASS

St. John the Baptist, Pawtucket, RI
Feast of the Holy Family, December 30, 2007

I went to the 9:30 Mass again this morning. Paul can really get some nice sounds out of that organ!

O come, all ye faithful..."Adeste Fideles"
- (I don't know where he got the intro from, but it was gorgeous!)
Blessed are those who fear the Lord...Alstott
Alleluia...Alstott
- (the chant-like one in A-flat. Of all the Alleluias usually included in that Respond and Acclaim book, apart from the O Filii et Filiae alleluia, which is always good, especially at Easter, this one is by far the best!)
Away in a Manger...Mueller
- (I still think Kirkpatrick's Cradle Song is better, but Murray's Mueller is a fine tune as well. BTW, don't forget to check out the poll I have on the CVA Message Boards - it's in the CVA #113 thread.)
Mass of Creation...Haugen
What Child is this..."Greensleeves"
Angels we have heard on high..."Gloria"

Peace,
BMP

That sounds a lot like my program, only I used Angels We Have Heard of High as the processional because of the reference to Mary and Joseph. Also, I used God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen for the Communion Hymn. Recessional was Go Tell it on the Mountain.
