Music for Holy Mass

Following is the music lists at Sacred Heart Church, West Warwick, RI, for:

Friday, XII-4-15: First Friday (Sacred Heart Community Mass)
Saturday/Sunday, XII-5/6-15: Weekend for the Second Sunday of Advent
Tuesday, XII-8-15: Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception

The Sung Ordinary of the Mass will be the same for all three sets:
Gloria VIII (Tuesday only - omitted otherwise)
Sanctus XVIII
Mysterium Fidei: Mortem tuam annuntiamus, Domine
Amen: tune of the first line of Sanctus VIII
Agnus Dei XVIII

The Alleluia will also be the same, in terms of the response.
Alleluia "Conditor Alme Siderum", which I adapted from the Mode IV chant of the same name.  (The versicles for First Friday and Immaculate Conception is not on the .pdf linked here, but I added it by hand for use at our parish.)

First Friday (Sacred Heart Community Mass)
Mass at 6 PM

Entrance: O Sacred Heart, O Love Divine
Psalm 19: R./ Your words, Lord, are spirit and life (BMP)
- NOTE: This link will change in the next couple of weeks as I continue work revamping my Psalms/Propers project.  For the one that's here now, we're using second response and "A" versicles.
Offertory: Conditor Alme Siderum (Mode IV)
Communion: Veni, Veni, Emmanuel (Mode I)
Recessional: To Jesus' Heart, All-Burning

Second Sunday of Advent
Saturday Mass at 5 PM; Sunday Masses at 7:30, 9, and 11:15 AM

Entrance: Hark! a Thrilling Voice Is Sounding (Merton)
Psalm 126: R./ The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy (Alfred Calabrese)
Offertory: On Jordan's Bank (Winchester New)
Communion: Comfort, Comfort, O My People (Geneva 42)
Meditation: The King Shall Come When Morning Dawns (St. Stephen)
- Our two hymnals (Worship III and Hymnal 1940) are amongst only a small handful left that use the tune "St. Stephen" for this hymn.  Many are now using "Morning Song" (a fine Early American tune, but I'm partial to "St. Stephen")
Recessional: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel (Mode I)

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
Monday anticipated at 6:30; Tuesday at 9 AM and 7 PM

Entrance: Immaculate Mary (Lourdes Hymn)
