|Hymns / Service Music|
|Opening||401 The God of Abraham praise
Back at St. Bartholomew's, New York - strong singing and organ.
|Hymn of Praise||Kyrie - Russian Orthodox setting
No indication as to where this is - could be Catholic or Episcopal, or maybe an Orthodox church. It is the version we will sing. However, they sing the "Nine-fold Kyrie" (each phrase is repeated three times), and we will sing the "Three-fold".
|Psalm||91:1-2, 9-16 (Plainsong with Refrain)|
|Gospel||589 Almighty God, your word is cast
This hymn will be our Lent "Theme Song", sung each Sunday before and after the Gospel. It is the featured "New & Review" song that can be heard in the video found at the bottom of this page. Not to be found on the internet sung by a congregation with this tune. So, the link is to that "riteseries" website - zoom to 200% to see the text and music, and hit the play icon to hear the melody.
|Sanctus||From the "Mass of Mercy"
A beautiful interpretation of this setting by a guitarist we have seen before: a Chris Brunelle, singing alone with his guitar. This is a setting that uses a tune we know for the text "Let all mortal flesh keep silence".
|Fraction||Agnus: S-164 Schubert
The only one I could find with an actual choir - great video of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington D.C. It is in Latin, has a repeat that is not in our English version, but it IS the music we will be using.
|Communion||570 All who love and serve your city
A powerful text by the 20th century hymn writer Erik Routley - together with an equally powerful 20th century tune by a Peter Cutts. The YouTube link only has the melody on two of the verses, the other three are just the accompaniment - both performed by an electronic instrument. The riteseries link gives you text and music (zoom to 200% to see clearly), and click on the play icon to hear the melody.

|Closing||455 O Love of God, how strong and true
Another location from last week: Holy Trinity, Covina, CA. Their Opening Hymn - you can see the choir arrive.
|Offertory||Jesus Christ the Apple Tree E. Poston (1905-1987)
The choir of King's College, Cambridge, UK - from 1993. Excellent!
|Communion||Adoramus te, Christe O. Di Lasso (1532-1594)
Chamber Singers: Tenor & Bass
Three women's voices sing the exact version we will use - however, we have shifted it to 3 part men's voices. Another excellent rendition.
