Dominica Palmarum - March 16, 2008, 5 PM
Extraordinary Form, Ritus Simplex
Saint Leo the Great Church, Pawtucket, RI

As much as I would have loved to do a good High Mass for this day, we just don't have the choir to do it. So, this will be my first Palm Sunday Tridentine LOW Mass. The blessing of the palms will be done according to Ordo Hebdomadae Sancte Instauratus, Ritus Simplex, 1957, which deals with Holy Week in smaller churches and oratories and the like. Here it indicates that the Mass may be sung or low.

Hosanna Filio David...Mode VII
Pueri Hebraeorum (first antiphon only, no verses)...Mode I
- (possible second antiphon ONLY if time permits, which I doubt)
Gloria, Laus, et Honor...Mode I
Ingrediente, Domino...Tone 8G
- (if procession goes outside of the church, again, which I doubt, but if it does, the Ingrediente is for when we go back inside)
Adoramus te, Christe...Dubois (from his "Seven Last Words of Christ")
Pange lingua gloriosi...Mode III
O sacred head surrounded..."Passion Chorale"
