VI Easter

I took the liberty of adding a few extra notes and listen links in this post.  On those links that emanated from Sacred Heart, which are in the form of YouTube videos, I added some information on the music via "title cards" within the videos.  Enjoy!


Ordinary: Cristo Risusciti (Luigi Picchi) (Memorial and Amen are adapted)

The rest:
Entrance hymn: Christ the Lord is ris'n today (Worship hymnal, #452) (Listen)
- The tune is "Surgit in haec dies", on which the current Mass setting we are using ("Cristo Risusciti") is based.  The listen link given was recorded from our choir loft on VI Easter three years ago.  The sung Sanctus, Memorial, Amen, and Agnus Dei are also on this link, which I aptly titled "Fun with 'Surgit in Haec Dies'".
Psalm 67: R./ O God, let all the nations praise you (Sam Schmitt) (PDF) (Listen)
- Another clip from three years ago.  The composer, Sam Schmitt, like me, is one of several composers who contributed Psalm settings to the Chabanel Psalm Project, started by Jeff Ostrowski, at Corpus Christi Watershed.  I have used a number of Sam's settings from these pages here at Sacred Heart.  These settings, by the way, are free to use in parishes.
Alleluia: O filii et filiae (Mode II/BMP) (PDF)
Offertory hymn: The strife is o'er (Worship hymnal, #451) (Listen)
Communion music:
- (11:15) Concordi laetitia (Mode VI)
- (all others) Psalm 51, R./ The Holy Spirit will teach you, alleluia, all the things I have said unto you, alleluia, alleluia (BMP, adapted in part from Parce, Domine, Mode I) (PDF)
Meditation hymn: I vow to thee, my country (on sheets provided in the pew) (Listen)
- Music by Gustav Holst, from the "Jupiter" movement of his work, "The Planets".  Another hymn, "O God, beyond all praising", which is in our Worship hymnal, also uses this this tune.  The listen link given here is from the funeral of Princess Diana at Westminster Abbey.
Recessional hymn: A hymn of glory let us sing (Worship hymnal, #469)
- The tune is the same as "Ye watchers and ye holy ones", which we sang last weekend.
