Ah yes, the day we hear the Gospel reading of the Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ.


All numbers refer to the Maroon hymnal.

Entrance hymn: 343 (First Tune) Praise to the Holiest in the height (Listen)

Kyrie: Messa Popolare "Laus Tibi Christe", music by Federico Caudana
- sung at Masses celebrated by Father Bucci

Responsorial Psalm: The Lord is my light and my salvation, music by Richard Proulx (antiphon) and Joseph Gelineau, SJ (verses) (can be found in Worship at #792)

Gospel Acclamation: same as Ash Wednesday

Offertory hymn: 61 The glory of these forty days (Listen)
- Organist in the video linked here is a good friend of mine, Ryan Lynch, who frequented some of the same church music message boards I did at one point.  He has since moved from the Boston area to Chicagoland to take on a much better parish position there.

Sung Mass (Sanctus through Agnus Dei): same as Ash Wednesday

Communion anthem: Ave Verum, music by Lorenzo Perosi
- By the way, stay tuned for a beautiful new (new to you, that is) Ave Verum we will be learning for Holy Week by Camille Saint-Saƫns!

Meditation hymn: 414 O for a heart to praise my God (Listen)

Recessional hymn: 55 Forty days and forty nights (short simple tune!) (Listen)
