Anticipated Mass for the Third Sunday of Lent

It's been a few months since the last time I filled in. Last summer I had filled in at St. John's after the death of our good friend Paul Martin. This Saturday, I'm filling in for the new music director, Robert Giambo. All of the music was of his choosing, except for the Communion, which was at the request of the pastor.

Organ recessional (to be determined by yours truly - probably last minute)UPDATE 3/7/10 8:36 AM:
Said organ recessional was three variations on Passion Chorale
, the first being the very basic two-part piece on it by Flor Peeters (cantus firmus in the tenor) from his Little Organ Book
, the other two were my own (one with cantus firmus in the pedal, the other with the melody on top, but with a snarky impromptu reharmonization).
