Musica Sacra at St. Leo Church, Lafayette

Subbing this weekend at all Masses at Leo: 4pm vigil, 8:30 and 10:30am Sunday. There is no cantor this weekend, so each Mass is a good old German Orgelmesse. Here's the all-Bach lineup. The chorales, it's being summer and with the need for items to be on the shortish side and on the less weighty side, but still on the high quality side, come from the Neumeistersammlung. For those of you who are trivia fans, my score for the Neumeisters is a first edition Baerenreiter purchased in a music shop near the cathedral in Cologne in 1985.

Ordinary: spoken
Prelude: Das alte Jahr vergangen ist
Procession: free improv
Alleluia: chanted by yours truly
Offertory: Erhalt uns, Herr, bei deinem Wort
free improv
Communion: Herzlich tut mich verlangen
Wenn dich Unglueck tut greifen an
Final: Christe, der du bist Tag und Licht
