Covering a funeral I played this morning and the Masses for this coming weekend, all at Sacred Heart Church, West Warwick, RI

Ah, yes!  After finishing a funeral in Warren yesterday where I bit four bullets but mixed in much of what we normally do at Sacred Heart, today I did a funeral at Sacred Heart, where we bite NO bullets, even with visiting clergy.

To the casket: Requiem aeternam (Mode VI)
To the altar: At the Lamb's high feast we sing ("Salzburg") (H-89)

Offertory: Ave Maria (Arcadelt)
Sanctus and Agnus XVIII (Pro Defunctis)
Memorial: Mortem tuam annuntiamus, Domine

Communion: Lux aeterna (Mode VIII); Jesus, Son of Mary ("Adoro Te") (H-223)
Final Commendation: I believe that my Redeemer Lives (H. St. Louis)
