IV Easter, and Where to Find the Latin Sung Mass Responses

To jump right to the music list, click here.

Some people asked me over the past couple of weeks, "Hey, where do you find the Latin responses for Mass"?  I have the answer for you.

I call your attention to the red Worship hymnal for this.  Pay heed only to the words, not necessarily the music, as most of the time, we use a setting different than what's written.  The words are the same, regardless of setting, although you might get a repeat of a word or phrase here and there.

The Kyrie (which we usually sing in Advent and Lent) is at #340.  (Incidentally, in the Latin Mass, the Kyrie is the one Ordinary part that is in Greek, not Latin.)
The Gloria is right below, at #341.
The Sanctus is at #348.
On occasion, we use the Latin Mortem tuam annuntiamus, Domine as the Memorial Acclamation (that is, the response to "The mystery of faith", or "Mysterium fidei").  That is at #349.  The translation, by the way, is simply We proclaim your death, O Lord, and profess your resurrection, until you come again.
The Agnus Dei at is #353.
Finally, Father will on occasion conclude Mass with Ite Missa est, alleluia, alleluia, to which we respond Deo gratias, alleluia, alleluia.  That is at #354 (second staff).


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