Liturgy Preparations using "Psalm 151":
Ash Wednesday (February 10, 2016)


Following is the first of a series of "liturgy planners" utilizing components of my pet project, dubbed Psalm 151, a set of Introits, Responsorial Psalms, Alleluias (in this case, the Lenten Gospel Acclamation in lieu of Alleluia), Offertories, and Communions for the complete three-year liturgical cycle.  It is a work in progress, with the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent and Passiontide completed, as well as the Easter Vigil.  As of the time I write this post (4:20 PM on Monday, February 8, 2016), I am now into the Third Sunday of Easter in this project.

Without further ado, here is Ash Wednesday!  And yes, I've even thrown in a Parce Dómine-based responsory for the Distribution of Ashes.

Your mercy extends to all things, O Lord (Wisdom 11 and Psalm 57)
R./ based on Miseréris ómnium, Dómine; V./ Tone 1 with alternate original SATB tone

Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned (Psalm 51)
completely based on the Mode I Parce, Dómine.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION (in lieu of Alleluia)
Gospel Acclamation "Vexilla Regis" (Glory and praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ)
R./ based on Vexílla Regis Pródeunt; V./ Tonus Peregrinus

Parce, Dómine, parce pópulo tuo, ne in aetérnum irascáris nobis (Psalm 51)
completely based on the Mode I Parce, Dómine.

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have raised me up (Psalm 30)
R./ chant-style, mixolydian; V./ Tone 7 with alternate original SATB tone

He who ponders the law of the Lord day and night shall bear fruit in due time (Ps. 1)
R./ chant-style, lydian; V./ Tone 5 with alternate original SATB tone
