III ADVENT (Gaudete Sunday)


Click here for an explanation on the name "Gaudete Sunday".
You will see a lot of similarities in this weekend's list to last weekend's list, due to the continuation of the pattern of the day's readings, especially that of the Gospel.


Ordinary Form of the Mass 
(Sat. 5 PM; Sun. 7:30, 9, and 11:15 AM)

Sung Ordinary and Alleluia: same as the last two Sundays
All numbers below are in the Maroon hymnal.

Entrance hymn: Hark! a thrilling voice is sounding, #9
Responsory: My soul rejoices in my God, music by Sam Schmitt
- One of only a miniscule select few Lectionary responsories NOT from a Psalm, this responsory consists of selected verses of the Magnificat.
Offertory hymn: On Jordan's bank, #10
Communion anthem: Magnificat, using two alternating settings on pages of the Pius X Hymnal that face each other.  I will chant the odd versicles (left page, Psalm Tone 8), and the duet will sing the even verses in harmony (right page, music by Ciro Grassi, who died right around the time the Pius X Hymnal was published.
Meditation hymn: Hark! the glad sound! the Savior comes, #7 (Listen)
Recessional hymn: O come, O come, Emmanuel, #2

Extraordinary Form of the Mass
(Sun. 12:30 PM)

Most likely Low Mass.  All numbers below are in the Red Worship hymnal.

Entrance hymn: On Jordan's bank, #356
Offertory: organ improvisation, theme TBD
Communion anthem: Magnificat, Psalm Tone 8 (without the Grassi polyphony)
Recessional hymn: Comfort, comfort, O my people, #370

(If we do go High Mass, add the Mode VII Asperges Me, Mass XVII, and the Rossini Propers.)
