MUSIC FOR HOLY MASS

St. John the Baptist Church - Pawtucket, RI
Anticipated Mass for the Seventh Sunday of Easter - May 3, 2008

I'm usually parital to attending Mass on Sunday, but since Brittany and I are going to Woburn, MA to watch a four-show taping for a cable show called Candlepin Challenge tomorrow I went this afternoon to the 4:00 "anticipated" Mass.

Creator Spirit, by whose aid / "Lasst uns erfreuen"
I believe that I shall see... / Alstott
Celtic Alleluia / Walker/O'Carroll
I have loved you / Joncas (Musically, I don't mind this too much. However, I'm not a big fan of singing the voice of Christ in the refrain.)
Massive Cremation (except the Agnus) / Haugen
Agnus Dei XVIII
The Lord is my light / Walker (First time I heard this one. Not too bad for a Chris Walker tune. It has a flavor similar to the Early American tune RESIGNATION.)
The Church's one foundation / "Aurelia"

Next week, I'll be filling in at the console for a friend. I'll have that list posted as soon as I get it.
Peace,
BMP

I used to play "The Lord is My Light" regularly when my parish still used the OCP missals. I like it.

I like that one, too. I occasionally get requests for it at funerals, usually as the psalm or at Offertory.
