MUSIC FOR THE SOLEMN LITURGY
OF OUR LORD'S PASSION AND DEATH
All enter in silence.
Responsorial Psalm: Father, into your hands, I commend my spirit, music by Richard Rice
Gospel Acclamation: same as during Lent
Music during the "kneel and pause" during the Passion reading: Adoramus Te, Christe, music by Theodore Dubois, from his Seven Last Words of Christ
- Translation: We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee, because by Thy holy Cross thou hast redeemed the world. (We sang this at the pause on Palm Sunday also, something I forgot to mention.)
Choral music during the Veneration of the Cross (as time permits):
1. Parce, Domine, music by Fr. Carlo Rossini
2. God so loved the world, music by Sir John Stainer
3. Jesu, salvator noster, music by Fr. Carlo Rossini
As the Cross is being enthroned, the following refrain is sung:
Christ Jesus Victor, Christ Jesus Ruler, Christ Jesus Lord and Redeemer!
Music during Communion (as time permits):
1. Ave Verum, music by Camille Saint-Saëns
2. HYMN: Maroon 75 O Sacred head, sore wounded
3. Tantum Ergo, music by Oreste Ravanello
- You may follow the Worship hymnal (#758) for the text, but the music is different than what is written. A translation is also provided there.
Meditation hymn: Maroon 467 Abide with me (Listen)
All depart in silence.
